Samsung Q1 Ultra with 3G

Samsung this morning upgraded its Q1 Ultra UMPC with a pair of crucial new trim levels. The Q1U-CMXP is the first North American model to build in a 3G cellular Internet connection that supports HSDPA data over AT&T's network in the US, giving it online access beyond just Wi-Fi. It otherwise carries the same specs as the reference Q1 Ultra with an 800MHz Intel A110 as its processor, 1GB of memory, and an 80GB ultraportable hard drive running Windows XP. It should be available now for $1,499.

A second system, the Q1UP-V, upgrades the faster Q1 Ultra Premium with Windows Vista Business in place of XP Professional. The handheld has the additional performance to handle the more demanding OS with a 1.33GHz Intel Core Solo and 2GB of memory as well as the 80GB hard drive and other features of most other models. It ships for slightly less at $1,449.

Samsung hasn't said if or when it will phase out the Ultra Premium with XP or introduce a 3G-capable Ultra using Vista.
