So as not to takes Zack’s awesome post out of view ill make this short,
For all you Origami fans (and future dev’s) Microsoft have released a Display emulator for the UMPC. So you can see how applications behave on the system. (It gives a nice close-upÂ glimpse of the handheld too)
Check it out here

We have come to light of some information – Microsoft â€œOrigamiâ€ is a new device of which will rival the Sony PSP, the iPod and other devices. It will be a handheld device of which can be physically manipulated to take different shapes and forms (nothing out of Star Trek, just folding a few timesâ€¦ we think) and will be able to play games, play music, connect wirelessly via Wireless Protocol and possibly Bluetooth.
OK that was right – minus the bit about the physical manipulation, however it will end up coming in different devices, shapes, styles, that probably will end up being physically manipulated – slide open, swivel open perhaps?
I got a lot of stick about writing the original post (which was an exclusive may I add, because nobody else had gutted up to being bold and open about it as I did). Anyway, Microsoft have indeed updated the OrigamiProject.com and let rip a whole load of things about it.
Not sure about the operating system – weâ€™ve seen some images running Windows XP, although the edition is unknown, probably Tablet PC Edition. However with Vista on the looms, Iâ€™m sure we can see that being supplied with the â€œOrigamiâ€ device.
That was also right :p It’ll be running Windows XP, perhaps a new version, but we will be seeing the Microsoft Touch Pack which shall be a new addition to the device. There are loads of bits of information about it spread over the Internet, but here’s some links which find the best of the best – straight from the source 🙂
