Default iPad, not so original?

I remember Microsoft developing the same thing a few years ago. I remember doing a report in front of the class on it. I just can't remember the name of it. It was pretty much the same exact concept except it ran Windows XP. It wasn't just another tablet PC, it was meant to be used in the same fashion of the iPad minus apps. Does anyone remember the name of the project?

Ah, Microsoft Origami is what I was thinking of. Which eventually evolved into UMPC.
