Evan42 over at the Origami Project forums reported that the Asus R2H is now appearing on the Microsoft Vista and Office Upgrade Redemption site. I took a quick look and verified that the UMPC model is now appearing; great news! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any other UMPCs at this time, but it’s possible that other OEM’s are handling their upgrades directly. If you’ve got an Asus R2H that’s eligible for a free Windows Vista upgrade, here’s the link.

I think it’s gone again; I sure can’t find Asus in the list of manufacturers between Acer and Averatec.

UPDATE: I received an email from MS that required a lot of hoop jumping and indicated that my upgrade would in fact be verified at some point prior to shipping. If it doesn’t qualify it won’t ship which means that the device upgrade list does not indicate those that get an upgrade. To be fair my package from Fujitsu doesn’t say anything about a Vista upgrade.

OK, I used the COA on the OneNote CD and it worked. For any other P1610 owners, it qualified for a Vista Business upgrade, totally free of charge including shipping.

Cool! Anybody done this for the Fujitsu P1610? I notice it’s on the qualifying list, too, but I don’t know what the COA would be.
