Summary: It is as it appears. The mobile-phone style keyboard is quite unwieldy, it takes quite some practice to use with any amount of effectiveness due to the keys being very uniform and lacking any differentiation between one key and the next (for example, on a standard keyboard the F and J keys usually have a bump). The model I purchased was the one with a 600 MHz processor.
The Samsung Q1 has fulfilled its quata with with me.

Summary: I have owned a Q1 since march 2009, from which I have enjoyed this computer even now. The Samsung Q1 is a fully functional on the move laptop that is very underrated , given the right antivirus, the Q1 can sail through Internet pages not far behind MacBooks with twice it's operating capacity. Although some programs, for unknown reasons, after being downloaded on-line slow this tablets prosseccing ability.
Summary: The reason I purchased this unit was to use it on my BMW K1200LT motorcycle as a GPS device, I'll be using either Microsoft Streets & Trips or Delorme Street & Trip. Some testing to see which is the better will be required. Being it is a computer I can also use software to play MP3 files & hopefully I'll be able to link it all through the Bluetooth to a Bluetooth helmet headset, this will get rid of the cords currently in use.
Summary: I needed a product that would provide full scale computing AND on-screen drawing capabilities. I thought of a TabletPC then crossed the Ultra-mobile PC on this site. COMPACT & POWERFUL with the great, high quality Samsung display. The 7" display allows me to draw storyboard panels and with my apps installed on the 4GB SD Card I can develop my manuscripts in the park. The battery truly does last 3-4 hours.
Pros: Compact, Convenient, Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Portability
Light, small, fast, and amazing battery. Cant fault the Q1U

Excerpt: "Great little tablet PC with only a few drawbacks. Firstly the battery life is INCREDIBLE. On battery-save mode you get 12 hours with the big battery!! The screen is clear, the touchscreen is responsive and accurate. Some people have said the 600mhz version is slow but mine launches fullscreen video whilst web browsing with no problems at all. Worth being careful with the bloatware you install as there's a big selection on the disk, but you dont really ...
