Will VARs Flip for Paul Allen’s Tiny PC?
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is back, this time with a super-tiny mobile PC that runs Windows Vista. The 1.5 pound Flipstart is slated to ship this month. It’s the size of a paperback book and weighs less than two pounds. The device, previously known as the MiniPC, was shown way back at DEMO in 2004. Hard to believe Vista actually beat this little gadget out the door.
Allen hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since leaving Microsoft. In fact, many of his investments have gone down in flames.
