OQO 02 now with Atom chip inside?

UMPCportal has posted a pic of the OQO 02 now with Atom chip at the IDF show. Dennis Moore CEO of OQO goes into more detail at OQOTalk.

Yes, indeed, that is an OQO prototype shown with an Intel(r) Atom(r) processor. Intel is showcasing the OQO prototype in a couple of their keynotes and elsewhere at IDF because we have achieved by far the best performance with their processor in our technology demonstration.

Note that this is not a product launch or announcement, but is a demonstration of what we think an Intel Atom processor should do in a product targeting users who need the ultimate in mobile productivity, and demonstrates all the areas where OQO has led the market for years -- performance, battery life, thermals, usability, design, and form factor. While there are other small and light devices using Intel's Atom processor, none of them comes close to the performance and productivity we are showing with this technology demonstration.
