Imagine the Possibilities: Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC Improves on Predecessor

While they’re still calling the portable computing solution the “Samsung Q1″, they’ve tacked on the “Ultra” moniker to let us know that this second-generation machine means business. Designed to improve on its predecessor in just about every way, the Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC

Unlike the original Q1, the Ultra boasts a full QWERTY keyboard, split in half so that you have access to the keys with your thumbs on either side. They have also improved the battery life, reduced the weight from 760g to 690g, and toss in Windows Vista Premium OS and MS Origami Pack.

The price point for the Q1 Ultra has not yet been announced, but Samsung expects to place it in the same neighborhood as the original Q1.
