Samsung Q1 UMPC to Hit on Mayday

The Samsung Q1, that ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) we've been hearing so much about, will reportedly be available worldwide on May 1. It's going to be expensive, too, selling for around $1400. That sounds like a lot to pay for a glorified-yet-smaller tablet PC with a 7-inch 800x480 LCD. It has a few mildly interesting features, though, such as GPS, WiFi, Ethernet and Bluetooth. But still. If this piece of bling cost $500, that would be different.

On a hopeful note, there are sketchy rumors of Samsung introducing a sub-$700 UMPC later this year, so there's that.
