Microsoft Origami - What is it?

Rumors are running around the internet faster than Paris Hilton's stolen phone book, but no one seems to know the answer to the question: "What is Microsoft's Origami project?" Is it the Xbox portable? Is it a Microsoft portable media player? It is a re-newed "Flipstart"? Heck, even these pictures are rumored to be fakes!

One thing is for sure, we will know more March 2nd. Click here to learn more.

Update: seems the "Microsoft Origami" link was brought down by MS last night. Hope you saw it before then. The other rumored news is that the pictures of the Origami device are of the concept, and not the finished item. Phew! I'm not sure how lime-green would have fitted into my mobile lifestyle...

I watched the video last night, but am still confused on what exactly the Origami is. It looks like yet another pseudo-mobile MS platform. Not quite a tablet, not quite a PPC, not quite a HPC. It left me wondering, do we need another format? Is it going to be running Windows, Windows CE, or some other weird software? Anyone know? Myabe it said near the end of the video, I got bored of watching people use it so I closed the video before the end.

Yeah - I'm looking forward to the March 2 announcement to get a few of these questions cleared up.
