Imagine taking life with you…anywhere.
A man sitting next to me on the subway took out a Samsung Q1U-V ultra mobile PC from his backpack which got a lot of attention from the other passengers. I got to see him play around with it; listen to music while answering his emails and opening document after document to fiddle in.
I have read up on this little gadget and it is pretty amazing. The screen has a really great display it’s has the best sound quality of any device of its kind, it is small and lightweight so it doesn’t weigh you down and you can fit in any bag or purse even! It comes with a hand strap and there is a built in stand on the device. The keyboard buttons are small and might be hard to read if you don’t have good eye sight, but then again, you don’t really need to look at the keys when you are typing… and you have to be pretty agile with your thumbs to write fast. But over all, it seems like a really cool thing to own. It is a bit pricey for the capability and size of the device but you can purchase one for just over 1000$ USD. There are also many variations on this same device. This is the model that I saw, but there are quite a few on samsung’s site, so perhaps a different one could be a better fit for your needs.
What’s in the Box? The Samsung Q1U-V ultra mobile PC comes with:
- Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC
- Samsung Q1 Ultra Getting Started Guide
- AC adapter & Power cable
- USB Data Transfer Cable
- Travel case
- Hand Strap
- Samsung System Software & System Recovery Cd’s
- Safety instructions guide
- Samsung Recovery Solution II / reinstalling Vista guide
You may want to take a look at the Samsung micro site for all the details on this little gizmo. The thing I found most interesting about it is that it runs on Windows Vista Business, and not some stripped down mobile version.
