OQO e2


OQO model e2 is a fully featured notebook computer that is the size of a handheld, capable of running Windows Vista in about 18 cubic inches of space.

San Francisco-based OQO demonstrated its initial proof of concept at WinHEC 2002, signaling a new era in ultra-mobile personal computing.
OQO unveiled its first commercial product, the OQO model 01, at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) where it won awards including TechTV's "Best of Show" in the mobile computing and wireless category.
Its successor, the model 01+, was certified by the Guinness World Records, as the world’s smallest full powered, full featured personal computer ever developed.

OQO has recently introduced its first ultra mobile PC, OQO model e2.
The model e2 signals a strategic expansion by OQO into the European mobility market in response to a very high interest from international customers, specially from Europe.

Model e2 Features

Full PC performance

  • 1.5GHz, or 1.6GHz VIA C7-M ULV processor
  • Integrated graphics chipset together with OQO's patented subprocessor technology
  • Designed for optimal performance per watt operation.
  • Storage drive capacities of up to a 120GB HDD,
  • Available with 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM operating at 533MHz

32 GB solid state drive

OQO is now offering a 1.8-inch 32GB solid state drive (SSD) on OQO model e2 computers. Unlike hard disk drives with spinning platters and mechanical heads, a solid state drive is based on NAND flash memory with no moving parts.

The SSD has a high operating shock tolerance of up to 1,500 G's, making it ideal for users in tough and extreme environments. In addition, model e2 computers with solid state drives exhibit better performance and faster boot times.

Easy input and navigation

Sliding up the 5" WVGA LCD of the model e2 reveals a 58-key thumb keyboard and track stick.

The EL backlit keyboard includes numberpad and SmartLock™ keys to enhance usability and functionality. With 18 keyboard shortcuts configured on the model e2, you can quickly launch commonly used applications such as the OQO Wireless Dashboard.

The model e2 keyboard also features a track stick mouse pointer for precise cursor movement with your thumb and dedicated zoom keys for quickly changing screen magnification that allow full interactivity while zoomed, and support 1000x600 and 1200x720 interpolated modes.

For effortless scrolling within a window or application, capacitive TouchScrollers™ are conveniently embedded in the lower right corner of the screen frame.

Built-in wireless

OQO has engineered 5 antennas into the magnesium alloy chassis of the model e2 to accommodate wireless technologies: WiFi and Bluetooth.

Standard on all model e2 configurations is tri-mode WiFi (802.11a/b/g) with diversity antenna selection for improved performance.

For personal area network connectivity, the model e2 can be paired with other devices such as keyboard, mouse, headset, and stereo headphones via Bluetooth.

To manage all your wireless connections, access OQO’s Wireless Dashboard software using the radio function shortcut on the OQO model e2 keyboard.

Thermal management

OQO has designed an advanced thermal management system that provides >2X improvement in cooling effectiveness over its predecessor, the model 01+.

The model e2 thermal management system includes a heatpipe, a cooling fan, and multiple air vents. The heatpipe extracts and transfers heat from the CPU to the air vents where the cooling fan blows air out of the chassis.

The speed of the cooling fan dynamically adjusts based on internal computer temperature and can also be overriden by the user through the OQO manager software.
