News.com is showing the first official pictures of Origami ‘minitablets,’ which look not unlike the large origami images we saw a couple days back—and exactly like the small images we posted this morning.

News.com is saying that the Origami devices run a “variant” of Windows XP (and can run other x86-compatible operating systems) and are small enough to fit in a “large pocket.” (That’s pretty wishful thinking for a device with a 7-inch screen.)

While some models leave out the keyboard entirely, one model—the red and white one seen previously, which is said to be a prototype that’s two years out’—has a twist-top that reveals a QWERTY thumb board underneath.

Price? “Under a $1,000.” Looks like they had Jonathan Ives from apple do the design - Stunning I hope this is how it will look and not just a silly black tablet.
