Microsoft's stealth PR campaign on what should be one of the first handheld devices to run full-blown Windows XP is continuing, with more leaked imagery, to match the video and additional source code seen on the Origami project site.

Definitely looks like the goal of the project is to impact Apple's lead with their combined iTunes and iPod combo. You better believe that Microsoft is hoping their Origami will leapfrog the iPod and leverage the installed base using Windows Media Player. Earlier news reports said that Origami is not intended as a gaming machine to act as a portable Xbox.
