Microsoft’s latest “Origami” hand held device was built together with Intel’s collaboration. Intel’s arch rival, AMD, says that they’ll be taking a “wait and see” approach to this new type of device.

Taiwanese manufacturers are hinting that AMD might use their mobile CPUs like the Turion 64, or even their Geode – a CPU made for embedded devices, for these UMPC platforms.
