Samsung Ultra Mobile PC Q1 Ultra

vnunet reports: [edited]

Samsung has unveiled the successor to its first generation Ultra Mobile PC Q1, the Q1 Ultra, at the CeBIT trade show in Hanover. The most noticeable change is the addition of a keyboard, split on either side of the screen. It also has a small joystick nub for mouse control if touching the screen is inconvenient.

The 7in WSVGA screen runs Windows Vista Home Premium at a resolution of 1024 x 600 and is backed by a UMPC Intel processor, 1GB DDR2 memory and 60GB 1.8in hard drive. It supports wired Lan, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSDPA and WiBro.

Users can also connect devices via the two USB sockets and there is an SD slot for expandable memory plus an audio jack for connecting headphones. Samsung has added two cameras to the ultra, a 1.3-megapixel unit for photos, and a front facing camera to enable webcams.

The Q1 Ultra measures 5.5” x 1” x 9” (large paperback book), and weighs 690g.

For a super-slim PC, that's got an absurd amount of gadgetry. Useful as anything, though. Just a shame it comes with Vista...
