Samsung Q1 Ultra Hits US

Samsung on Monday confirmed that its next-generation Q1 Ultra ultra-mobile PC will at last reach the US. Despite the change in territory, the Ultra still has the option of an HSDPA modem for connecting to cellular Internet access at high speeds; the VGA front camera and 1.3-megapixel rear are still present for video calls and recording, Samsung adds. The Americanized version also receives a processor upgrade to Intel's new A100 processors at either 600 or 800MHz, netting a longer 4.5 hours of real-world use.

Other important upgrades from the Asian and European version remain intact. A sharper 1024x600 7-inch LCD with LED backlighting improves visibility outdoors, while the split keyboard lets owners avoid cluttering the touchscreen while typing.

The Q1 Ultra should be available very soon for $799 in the US, with North America-friendly GPS, external DVD rewriters, and other peripherals already set as options.
