Q1 Ultra Premium, 22/7 LCD

Continuing a wave of announcements, Samsung has uncovered another version of its Q1 UMPC (pictured), the Q1 Ultra Premium. The machine now runs on a faster 1.33GHz Core Solo processor, and is fitted with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The lithium-ion battery should now provide 7.5 hours of use instead of 4.5, and the computer's signature split keyboard has been given larger caps for easier typing. Specifications should otherwise remain unchanged, including the default 80GB hard drive, SD/MMC slot, and wireless in the form of 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0. Samsung has not announced a price and release date for the Premium, but the price of other Q1s will drop in order to clear inventory.

The company has already released a new SyncMaster monitor however, the 2263DX. Aimed at businesses and other professionals, the display actually combines two screens: one is the main 22-inch (1680x1050) LCD, while the other is 7-inch (800x480) secondary display, attached on a swiveling arm that lets users position it over or to the side of the parent screen. The monitor has an extremely high 8,000:1 contrast ratio with a 5ms response time, and accepts HDMI input. It is on sale for $550.
