Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC Specs and Pricing

Warner posted a link to Samsung’s press release regarding the Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC. Here are specs, pricing, and anticipated dates for ordering. The introductory model is at $799 ( yes -you read that right ), with native resolution going up to 1024 x 600, LED with 280 nits. In addition the track stick now has mouse functionality. More pictures below ( click to see large scale image ).

Q1 Ultra Brief Overview

The Q1 Ultra advances Samsung’s family of ultra-mobile computing devices, answering the growing demand for companion PCs that offer the power of a desktop or notebook computer but can be accessed anytime and anywhere.       

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 announcement marks one year since Samsung, along with partners Microsoft and Intel, pioneered a new category and form factor of PCs with the introduction of the Q1 UMPC.  The Q1 family delivers full PC capabilities when a desktop computer is not an option and a notebook PC is impractical or simply undesirable.  Through its combination of PC functionality, multimedia versatility and advanced connectivity, the Q1 has become the best selling UMPC in the world.

 

UPDATE: Added new SKU line, updated pricing, specs received from Samsung. Specs, dates, pricing subject to change, but are the latest as received from Samsung.

UPDATE 2: Updated number of nits. Information from Samsung originally stated 280, but the new official spec sheet states them as 300. Also updated other information in the Entry Level machine against updated specs, among other differences.
