The Origami site is finally up.

Part of me is really interested in it...part of me thinks it may not quite hit the sweet spot. Based on nothing but hype, it seems like a capable device, but doesn't seem small enough to be really portable. I don't know that there's enough mobility benefit over a straight-up laptop or Tablet PC to make it worthwhile. I guess we'll see.

The Nokia 770 seems to be less capable (well, less capable than the dubiously-based-in-reality astroturf marketing videos I've seen for Origami), but also is reasonably small. It'll be interesting to see whether people are more drawn to functionality or mobility, but MS's marketing muscle may tip the balance of that particular scale.
