An OQO with OLED and Intel processor could be revealed at CES

One mobile device I never owned, but almost pulled the trigger on a couple of times, was the OQO. However, it is way out of my price range, starts at $1,299 and accessories are expensive too, and I could never justify the price. The nicest high-end model is a whopping US$2,999 too. Rob Bushway mentioned that the Digital Experience vendor email list revealed that an updated OQO will be revealed at CES next week.

This updated OQO model will apparently be called the OQO model 2+ and will use an Intel Atom processor, OLED display (awesome!), and have worldwide 3G capability. These upgrades sound great, but I imagine this feature-packed baby with the 2GB of RAM coming in close to that $3,000 price so it makes it a non-device for me. With the low price small computers/netbooks available today is there still a market for highly portable, expensive devices like the OQO?
