It wasn't without a lot of warning signs, but still we're sad to see the hammer drop. It looks like Model 2+ maker OQO has officially closed up shop, and according to a statement on the OQOTalk forums, it cannot offer any more repair or service support due to \"financial constraints.\" All our attemp

The chances of seeing Model 2+'s release seems dimmer and dimmer, as online retailer Build Your UMPC has joined eXpansys in canceling pre-orders for the Model 2+. OQO's senior VP Bob Rosin confirmed bad news, saying a firm shipping date was partly the reason behind the vendor's decision. Furthermor

We knew the OQO model 02 was hanging around at CES playing on Sprint's (demo) XOHM network, but we were finally able to hunt the unit down and snag a pic of the interface. Now, if only we could pick one of these up sometime soon...

OQO demonstrated the first UMPC with embedded Sprint XOHM WiMAX here at CES today and while not earth shattering -- as WiMAX isn't a brand spanking new baby -- it's nice to see the tech trickle into more portable devices. Of course, don't expect to be able to pop out and pick up an OQO model 02 wit

OQO may not be releasing a new portable machine this CES, but the Model 02 is getting a couple of new upgrades. In addition to a new $200 outdoor display option (with 50% of the outdoor reflectivity of the current 02's screen, but no additional brightness), the new high end version will also featur

Man, what a tease. OQO's Anytime / Anywhere event is all wrapped up in London and with it, an updated OQO Model E2 with HSDPA data is born. At the moment, that's all that's been announced, a same spec'd Model E2 with a €250 (about $367) premium inclusion of HSDPA/UMTS 2100MHz; GSM/EDGE/GPRS 900

OQO has finally brought its wares to the rest of the world with the introduction of the Model e2, the opening of an international office in the UK, and the hiring of a former Palm Europe Executive. In case you were wondering, the Model e2 appears identical to North America's OQO Model 02, albeit wit

Ugh, not more pictures of Palm's Centro, you gasp. Yes... and much more. This time, it's the Centro nuzzled up for some quickie shots with Sprint's Treo 755p and new Vogue (that's, HTC Touch to the rest of the world) and what must be Sprint's take on the new OQO Model 02. A veritable who's who of s

A bit of news from camp OQO today: the Model 02 is getting some upgrades, including a 32GB SSD or 120GB spinning disk option, new CPUs up to 1.6GHz, and upgraded WWAN with EV-DO Rev. A from Verizon and Sprint, with the base model also dropping to $1,299. In related news, OQO's got a new CEO on the

We knew adding HSDPA to the OQO Model 02 was roughly equivalent to swapping out a mini-PCI card, but instead of waiting on OQO to take its own sweet time in releasing such a version in the States, tnkgrl took it upon herself to hack one up. After soldering in a correctly sized Sierra Wireless AirCa

While OQO has certainly had its share of ups and downs over the past few years -- from us calling the Model 01 the \"heavyweight champion of vaporware,\" to literally having a market segment spring up around the devices -- things looked to be headed decidedly up with the release of the 3G-capable Mod

When you're waiting on a signature device like the decked-out OQO Model 02, you're REALLY waiting on it, so the anxious gadgetheads who've been watching this one like a hawk will be delighted to learn that the pocketable powerhouse is finally shipping. After a slight delay -- which must have been t

The UMPC that brought the sexy back, the OQO Model 02, is being shown in Barcelona with HSDPA, according to OQO. That doesn't mean much without a corresponding carrier announcement, being that all they had to do was take out the Sprint or Verizon EV-DO module, and throw in dual or tri-band HSDPA, b

It's been over a year since OQO updated their original Model 01 with the 01+, and since then the UMPC / ultraportable computer landscape has changed quite a bit, to say the least. Now, cloaked by an increasingly usual (and irritating-for-Engadget) confidentiality agreement, today saw the passage of
