Beautiful, featherweight design; decent-size screen; multiple methods to navigate menus and input text; plenty of networking options; dual-mic array.
Lacks keyboard; poor performance; short battery life; weak speaker sound.
The Samsung Q1's sleek case is definitely eye-catching, but we expect better performance and battery life for a thousand of our hard-earned bucks.

this is the perfect portable computer but you can also add hardware to it to make it even better. I like the size and function of this tablet computer . I travel alot so I thought this would be the perfect computer for traveling
I use this thing for EVERYTHING!!!! What I love about it more is the fact that it has a directional pad on it plus programmable buttons so I can use Nintendo, Sega, and other video game emulators right on it. The battery life on the Q1 (VIA ver) is so great I get hours and hours of play (about 8 hours on low power settings and I am using an old battery so if you get a new battery it will be more.
The memory will only go up to 1GB this is insane especially when they shipped some of these with the full gig they should have at lest made it 2GB ready.
The VIA version does not take windows 7 well since the video drivers are not supported (there are ways around this.)
Other Cons is the lack of frills like a SD card reader or stereo speakers (it has two spots for them but one is empty. plus the Hard drive is not a normal interface (same hard drive as an iPod classic) so upgrading it is expensive (I do not know if you can just pull a HD out of an iPod but I will not try it unless I get one for next to nothing)
All in all this is WELL worth it from $150 to $200 bucks used better quality and the $100 tablets out today can not hold a candle to this, tablets with android or Apple OS are only blown up phones with phone games and phone quality graphics spend the extra few bucks and get yourself a tablet or UMPC that runs a FULL OS.
I needed a little tablet PC to use as an ebook reader or as a PDA. The unit has interesting features. A split keyboard that is not Easy ti use but remains convenient. the joystick can also be used as a mouse and there are also two buttons that mimic a real mouse. Very convenient to use at lectures (an external keyboard will be needed), on campus, for last minute review before a major exam... You can also review in a flash any important document in PDF, Word, PowerPoint, etc. Also, very interesting to pull up somewhere and stare at movie in all tranquility. The LCD is fantastic and the sound will blow you away.
However, the OS is slow with Vista or Windows 7 but the graphics are still excellent. The 4 cell battery last less than 4 hours so one should consider in investing in 6 cell battery for more time and saving on the light bill too...the Wi-fi is a bit weak but still good.
Overall the product deserves a 4 and a half stars instead of 5...
I would definetely spend money on this than on smart phone like HTC which is offering very limited possibilities. If a smart phone is needed a Black Berry or Android can do the trick very well.
It is also a great alternative to an iPad as i do not need to have a Desktop or laptop around to load anything. Well, even though I do not have the multitouch features, I am still happy with my device. The Samsung Q1 Ultra can be used as a stand alone laptop when travelling or on a business trip. you can load anything right here at your fingertips. The HDD of 80GB limits the unit to basic stuff such as reading emails, reading a book, reviewing a presentation in between a coffee break, etc. Do not expect the world with an HDD of 80 GB and a screen of 7 inch...if correctly use you get for your money.
I do not regret this purchase not for one second...I am enjoying it...therefore i hope future Q1 ultra owners will take advantage of the experience at your fingertips offered by the unit.
