Samsung Unveils Q1 Ultra UMPC

Samsung Electronics America today announced its next-generation UMPC family, the Q1 Ultra, at the Samsung Experience in New York.

Complete with an integrated split-QWERTY keypad, mouse, and user-defined function keys, the Q1 Ultra UMPC is designed to enhance productivity, ease-of-use and portability in a range of personal and professional scenarios. With an increased battery life of 4.5 hours coupled with faster speeds, flexibility and mobile functionality, the Q1 Ultra product provides a compelling solution packed into a 1.5 pound package.

The Q1 Ultra UMPC features the new Intel Ultra Mobile Processor running at a clock speed of 600 or 800 MHz, along with 1 GB of DDR2 system memory. The Q1 Ultra supports a minimum of 4.5 hours of continuous run time via the integrated Lithium-Ion prismatic batteries. Use of the higher-density polymer batteries enables greater battery capacity in a smaller space, thereby leading towards a smaller overall form-factor. The Q1 Ultra includes integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR and the factory optional 3.5G HSDPA cellular modem. Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows XP Tablet Edition operating systems are supported, enabling full PC compatibility with all applications.

The Q1 Ultra features a 300 pixel webcam, along with a high-performance dual-array microphone, enabling face-to-face video chatting/video conferencing. Additionally, a high-resolution 1.3 megapixel camera supports video recording and still pictures. Supporting these features, the Q1 Ultra is equipped with a 7" Wide SVGA LCD touchscreen that boasts a native resolution of 1024x600. The new, LED backlit LCD supports 300nits of brightness. Facilitating system and data security, the Q1 Ultra is also available with an integrated fingerprint reader enabling enhanced security and fast application/website log-in.

The integrated split-QWERTY keypad is located to the left and right of the LCD. Positioned for thumb input, users can now respond quickly to emails, instant messages, update presentations and spreadsheets, etc. without the need of a virtual, on-screen or external keyboard. And with the integration of the AVS Now Instant-On feature, users can enjoy a host of multimedia applications, including videos, movies, music and still photo viewing, without booting up into Windows.

Value-add options include a docking station which supports 3 x USB 2.0 ports, additional standard or extended battery charger slot, audio-out port, microphone-in port and stylus holder, U.S. and Canada GPS navigation receiver and maps, an external USB-based keyboard with point stick and mouse select buttons, an organizer/portfolio carrying case, 6-cell extended-life battery, 8-cell extended-life Power Bank and a DVD±RW Dual Layer external Optical Disk Drive.

The Q1 Ultra UMPC is available in a number of configurations, starting with an MSRP of $799.00 and can be purchased through a variety of retail and e-tail outlets including Best Buy, Circuit City, CDW, CompUSA, Amazon.com, NewEgg.com, Buy.com, Costco.com, Tiger Direct, PC Connection, B & H Photo and PC Mall. The Q1 Ultra UMPC is also available through distribution via Ingram Micro.
