Post-Intelligence reports on a video
of a portable
Microsoft device (referred to as "Origami
that was spotted on DigitalKitchen LLC's website
. Among other functions previewed in the video, is the
device's ability to play games, specifically, a version of Halo
acknowledged that the video reflects "a concept we've been working on with partners," but warns that the
video is dated and does not represent the product's current state. The keyword is "concept," which suggests
that the Halo
footage was added to demonstrate the Origami's capabilities. As such, this is not evidence that
the game will be featured on the device. But, according to OrigamiProject.com, Microsoft is poised to make a major
announcement this Thursday, March 2. Stay tuned.
It should be noted that the Origami appears to be a mobile
PC, rather than a portable gaming device or media player. The device does not look to compete with Nintendo or Sony on
the handheld gaming front, nor does it look to upstage Apple in the portable media market.
