If we copy Nokia's cleverness and Apple's marketing style, how can we go wrong?

So Microsoft tried to play the Apple game, and succesfully, too.

Today it unveiled the Origami, and both blogosphere and traditional press went for it, lock, stock, and barrel. Teaser sites, teaser videos, the rumour mill, no means was shunned and boy did we go for it. Heck, even I am writing about it, ain't I?

Having said that, what on Earth makes the WinTel partnership think this hybrid in-between-pocket-and-portable will succeed where Newton, PDA and Tablet PC failed?

Unless it's the unexpected success of the Nokia 770, of course.
