Samsung Debuts First Ultra-Mobile PC Optimized For Windows Vista
Samsung´s Q1P

Samsung Electronics announces its newest Ultra- Mobile PC (UMPC) model, the Q1P for Windows Vista, which is Samsung's first UMPC to qualify for Windows Vista certification.

Intended as a companion PC, the Q1 UMPC provides users with an innovative way to combine PC functionality along with multimedia versatility and advanced connectivity, all in an ultra-mobile platform.

Featuring an Intel Pentium processor (running at 1.0 GHz), an impressive 60GB hard drive and 1GB of memory - which is twice that of the original Q1 model - Samsung designed the Q1P for Windows Vista UMPC for the professional user who wants a no-compromise, high-performance solution for completing projects and meeting deadlines while on the go. With the Q1P model's increased battery life of approximately two and a half hours, coupled with faster speeds, flexibility and mobile functionality, this product provides a compelling solution in a highly portable package.

"The Ultra-Mobile PC is a growing class of PCs that provides a more natural and intuitive experience for on-the-go use," said Mika Krammer, Director of Windows Client Mobility at Microsoft Corp. "It is exciting to see the industry momentum behind the UMPC platform and Origami Experience, and we are thrilled to work closely with Samsung to deliver innovative solutions to our customers such as the Q1P for Windows Vista. This new addition to the UMPC category combines the power of Windows Vista with a lightweight, carry-everywhere hardware design that enables users to easily maintain their digital lifestyle."

As with the entire Q1 line, the Q1P for Windows Vista UMPC is equipped with a seven-inch wide LCD touch screen. The unit also features an easy-to-use "inking" feature, which allows data to be directly inputted through the touch screen, with results similar to a handwritten note. Handwriting can be also transferred to regular text.

It is simple for anyone on the go to stay connected, entertained and informed with the full power of a PC packed into a tiny 1.7-pound product. The Q1 models also offer wireless communication capabilities that include WiFi and Bluetooth for easy Internet access. All Q1 models also integrate the AVS Now feature, allowing users to enjoy a host of multimedia applications, including video, movies, music and still photos, without booting up Windows.

The Q1P for Windows Vista is available now for an MSRP of $1,299.
