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.

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?

Review: Samsung Q1 keyboard

Pocketables
6 March 2007
  • Excerpt: About two months after I sent away for it , the Samsung Q1 portable USB keyboard (model AA-SK0TKBD) finally arrived. Normally priced at just under $100 in the U.S., this one was free with the purchase of any UMPC in the Q1 series. The offer was one of the reasons I decided to buy the Q1P and organizer in December.
