Take a look at the Samsung Q1-SSD, this one with a 32GB solid-state flash drive. We must tell you up front that it costs $2430, far above the $500 Origami
fantasy price point originally touted months ago.
But still. It's quiet, more durable, more efficient and faster than the Q1 with the spinning disk inside. Plus, you can play back video, still photos or audio without having to boot it up at all. Even so, we're thinking this UMPC platform is a bust, and this is just a marketing concept. For a product with a solid-state disk inside that we think more resembles the future, take a look at Samsung's other announcement of the day, the Q30 laptop.
