It seems the Vista-certified Samsung Q1 spotted in Korea in January has been forgotten. That’s the only explanation for why Samsung unveiled its "first UMPC optimized for Windows Vista" the other day. Across the Pacific it was the Celeron-based Q1 getting the Vista treatment, but in the United States it’s the Pentium-running Q1P. "With the Q1P for Windows Vista UMPC," a company exec said, "Samsung has once again proven its dedication to the UMPC market by delivering a powerful product that allows even the most mobile individuals to enjoy the many benefits of the Windows Vista operating system while on the go."
The rest of the press release doesn’t contain anything earth shattering, but there’s an amusing little typo about the Q1P’s "impressive 60MB hard drive." The device is already available now ($1299) at various brick-and-mortar and online shops, so Vista drivers have got to be coming soon.[GottaBeMobile.com]
