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.
With the introduction of Samsung's Q1 and the more powerful Q1P UMPC last year, a new category and form factor for PCs emerged: a truly ultra-mobile device that provides the power of a PC, but can be accessed anytime, anywhere, even where desktop computers are not an option and notebook PCs are impractical.
Featuring an Intel Pentium processor (running at 1.0 GHz), an 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.
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.
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.
