Samsung Q1 Ultra HSDPA review

Techworld
20 March 2008
  • Summary: The Samsung Q1 Ultra HSDPA is a great device if you just need to stay online while you're on the move, but it's not really equipped for anything more taxing. It's also a bit too big to be easily portable, and the keyboard can be frustrating.

Samsung Q1 Ultra

MobileTechReview.com
22 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Certainly an elegant and feature-rich device that addresses the first generation Q1's shortcomings. But for this price, I want more speed! Even simple tasks are annoyingly slow on the Q1 Ultra. But for those who need an goes-anywhere full Windows PC that fits in a roomy purse or briefcase and doesn't cost $2,000, the Ultra is worth considering.
  • Pros: Full Windows in a very portable format. Screen resolution is high enough for a near-notebook experience and the touch screen is accurate and responsive to finger touch. Good networking with Bluetooth, WiFi and even HSDPA on one model. Navigation software is a plus.
  • Cons: Quite slow. Interacting with small on-screen elements like Start Menu program lists, hyperlinks and close boxes take a precise hand (and use of the stylus rather than a finger). The tiny keyboard is better than nothing, but not by much.

Samsung Q1 Ultra

  • Summary: We remain optimistic that Microsoft and its hardware partners will turn the UMPC tide and deliver a compelling touch-screen experience. There were marked improvements in battery life and input (when using the stylus instead of a finger) with this generation, but we think the Q1 Ultra represents generation 1.5 rather than a true second-generation product.
  • Pros: Great screen, good battery life, and improved stylus input.
  • Cons: still bad for the fingers; slow performance in media apps.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for an extremely portable PC that will attract attention at the airport, office, or your favorite hotspot, the Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC fits the bill—but if you actually want to get work done on the road, skip this ultralight and buy a laptop.
  • Pros: Beautiful screen, Eye-catching design, Very light, Full QWERTY keyboard
  • Cons: Expensive, Cramped keyboard is difficult to use, Painfully slow performance, Short battery life

Samsung Q1 Ultra Review

HardwareCentral
31 July 2007
  • Conclusion: The Q1 Ultra makes no pretense of being a speedy game machine or workstation-class number-cruncher. Generally, it takes the annoying decrease in speed between Windows XP and Vista and magnifies it slightly. Application-launching is leisurely, as are responses to some taps or button presses, though YouTube and DVD videos played smoothly enough.

  • Excerpt: Ultramobile PCs are hot right now, but can a device with a small screen, a split keyboard, and performance in the PDA class convince you it's a fully functional PC?
