Samsung introduces Q1P UMPC for Windows Vista
Posted on 7-Mar-2007 12:27 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has announced its newest Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) model, the Q1P for Windows Vista, which is Samsung's first UMPC to qualify for Windows Vista certification.

UMPC models are a new category of computing devices, providing a the power of a desktop PC, with easy access anytime, anywhere, even where desktop computers are not an option and notebook PCs are impractical. Intended as a companion PC, the UMPC devices provides users with an innovative way to combine PC functionality along with multimedia versatility and advanced connectivity, all in an ultra-mobile platform.

In preparation for the launch of the Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system, which Microsoft unveiled in early 2007, Samsung created a task force to ensure that Samsung products, including the Q1 UMPC, would meet Microsoft's quality standards. The result of Samsung's efforts is the Q1P for Windows Vista, a UMPC that delivers the features and benefits of the Windows Vista operating system.

Featuring an Intel Pentium processor running at 1.0 GHz, 60GB hard drive and 1GB of memory Samsung designed the Q1P for Windows Vista UMPC for the professional user who wants a high-performance solution for completing projects and meeting deadlines while on the go.

The company says the increased battery life of approximately two and a half hours, faster speeds, flexibility and mobile functionality provide 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. 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.
