History of the UMPC video starring Otto Berkes


Otto_berkes_1While I doubt it will rival the "History of the World" audience that Mel Brooks enjoyed, you can catch a history of the UMPC with Otto Berkes over on YouTube. What’s most surprising to me is that I expected Otto to be ultra-small, like around 3′ 2", but no, he’s actually full size. Seriously, this is a four-and-a-half minute overview of how the UMPC arrived also where Microsoft hopes to take this class of device. More importantly as noted by Bjorn Stromberg, Otto shows a prototype motherboard that is roughly half the size of the boards in today’s UMPCs.

Looks like the next generation could be very interesting. At one point he implies its not far away.
