Origami models

Intel showed off two prototypes of ultramobile PC devices at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday. The models are examples of full-featured, low-wattage minitablets that can run a variant of Windows XP, developed as part of Microsoft's Origami Project.

Touch of Origami

This prototype mobile PC, about the size of a paperback book, has a 7-inch touch screen and standard x86 processors. It can run full versions of desktop operating systems beyond the XP variant from Origami.

Drop-down keyboard

The second Origami-like model has a QWERTY keyboard that swivels out as needed. There is also a navigation panel.

The hardware uses Intel's ultralow-voltage chips.
