Samsung Q1 UMPC Unwrapping

Kevin over at jkOnTheRun unwraps the Samsung Q1 UMPC and records himself doing it. Unlike Rob Lowe at the '88 DNC, this won't come back to bite him in the ass.

One thing he discovered while installing the device was that the USB cable has integrated syncing software.

When you plug it in to the Q1 and then attach the other end to a host PC's USB port, both machines fire up software called "SuperLink". SuperLink gives you a basic two-pane view between the two machines so that you can move files or folders between the two computers via a speedy USB 2.0 connection. You can't automatically synch files with this tool, just manually move them.

Very interesting. Adding proprietary software to custom USB cables may be a way for companies to add value to their MP3 players or cellphones. We look forward to seeing more news about the Q1 as it rolls in.
