This ZDNet column does a fine job of clarifying the potential of the Microsoft Origami in that it's most likely not a PSP or Nintendo DS market device, but rather an extension of the previous niche for Tablet PC's:
Not that there is anything wrong with that sort of thing, you understand. I have this cousin who can be like that and everyone still loves him just fine.
Seriously, it's not a bad concept ... in addition to Microsoft's own tablet, Nokia's web tablets are starting to break out these kinds of devices and there's always been rumors of Apple making a bizarre iPod/Newton/Mac love child. But just because it can play Halo doesn't mean Nintendo has anything to worry about.
