Samsung unveils Vista-certified UMPC


Although never advertised as being Vista ready, the Samsung Q1 series has already been seen for several months and on many occasions running the new operating system. It’s been quite showy about it, too, appearing in videos and even at CES.

But officially, Samsung’s UMPCs are not "Vista Capable." Yet, folks at the Microsoft Windows Vista Experience Center in Seoul, Korea, today would have to disagree. And they have every reason to because, according to AVING USA, that’s where Samsung "revealed its new Vista-certified UMPC." They say it’s the original Celeron-based Q1 (NT-Q1) but it’s actually the Q1-SSD shown in the picture.

Either way, it looks like that rumor going on about Vista and the Q1 may be true after all.

  • Well, the difference between these two Celeron-based Q1 (NT-Q1) and the Q1-SSD, is just the disc. ;)

  • Good point, ctitanic.

    Are those Vista drivers I see on the horizon? It would be great if they were released this week while everyone is caught up in the excitement :)
