Jkkmobile review of Origami Experience 2.0


Jkkmobile has a video review of the just released Origami Experience 2.0.

By the way, you can download Origami Experience and run it on a UMPC or a desktop. Of course, it really makes the mose sense on a UMPC and some features won’t be available if you don’t have a touch display. The Windows Vista Blogs lists some of the caveats:

The Origami Experience 2.0 is designed for Ultra-Mobile PCs that run Windows Vista. To run the Origami Experience 2.0, a UMPC with the following specifications is recommended:

Minimum 100 MB of available hard disk space
Minimum 1 GB of system memory
Touch panel display (required for Origami Picture Password)
The Origami Experience 2.0 requires the following software installed:

Windows Internet Explorer 7. Origami Experience 2.0 requires Internet Explorer 7 for its RSS platform.
Windows Media Player 11. Origami Central requires Windows Media Player 11 in order to manage and play media.
Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. The calendar tile in Origami Now works only with Office Outlook 2007 Calendar. The mail tile in Origami Now works with Office Outlook 2007 Mail and Windows Mail.
The Windows update available here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932406 . This update is highly recommended if you use the mail tile in Origami Now with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.

The Vista blog also has a couple additional postings on Web Browsing optimizations in OE2 and it’s RSS support. Believe me, there’s lots more to OE2. Definitely worth checking out.
