Samsung to Unveil Origami PC May 1
Samsung will take the wraps off its first Ultra-Mobile PC on May 1, according to an invitation sent to journalists this week. The event, to be held in San Francisco, will mark the launch of the first device based on Microsoft's Origami concept that made waves at CeBIT in March.
Samsung's UMPC, known as Q1, will retail in South Korea for $1264 -- more expensive than Microsoft's target price range of $500 to $1000. Prices for the United States and Europe were not announced, nor were hardware specifications of the device. UMPCs largely resemble a small Tablet PC with 7-inch touch screen, and run a full version of Windows XP with special software.
