Samsung Unveils Next Generation of Ultra Mobile PCs

After introducing a new category and form factor for PCs in 2006 with the release of the Q1 UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC), Samsung announced the Q1P SSD Ultra Mobile PC at CES.

The device is the first UMPC of its kind to use an SSD solid state flash memory-based hard drive in place of a conventional rotational media-based hard drive.

The Q1P SSD is fueled by a 32GB of SSD (solid-state NAND) flash memory, as opposed to the traditional 1.8" Hard Drive found in the earlier Q1 models.

With the SSD-enabled model, boot time is 25-50 percent faster than systems that employ a traditional hard drive, according to Samsung. Overall system performance is significantly enhanced, as the SSD is capable of reading 300 times faster (53 MB/s) and writes 150 percent faster (28 MB/s) than models with typical hard drives. With its departure from the traditional hard drive, the Q1P SSD UMPC is equipped to withstand twice the impact of the hard-drive-enabled model and its battery life is also improved, as it requires less power to run the flash-based SSD hard drive.
