If you search the net, you'll sse lots of people talking about the EO, but not many people at all talking about the Samsung and even less talking about the Asus or Founder.
TabletKiosk have done a great job of getting units in front of people quickly. They were the first to offer pre-orders, the first to offer pre-production units for test/review and the first to release a manual on the internet (although the FCC "leaked" the Samsung one first).
They are also cheaper than the Samsung, which makes them more attractive from a purchasing perspective too.
I wonder if they'll be able to keep this mind share going once the dust settles and the devices start hitting the market...

A few days ago I posted a poll about who has a better marketing campaign and TabletKiosk is the winner so far. http://ultramobilepc-tips.blogspot.com/2006/04/day-19-who-has-better-marketing.html#links

Hello Daryl, I'm not sure word of mouth (or in this case online saturation) suggests the TabletKiosk EO is more widely discussed online. If you search Google for both "Samsung Q1" and "TabletKiosk eo" you will see that the former has more than four times the number of results than its rival. With that being stated I still have a difficult time justifying the steep tag that Samsung's UMPC requires. Best wishes, Kimmy

I have pre-ordered an eo from tabletkiosk. their service is amazing. Assuming the device is as great as it appears this is the company to deal with.
