I've returned to Australia from the United States and more excited about Tablet PC than ever. While some of you are screaming for updates I will have to let you know up front that most of what I saw/heard/touched is under strict NDA. I will however tell you this, the Ultra-Mobile PC platform is here to stay and shows no sign of slowing its coverage. In short...EXPECT MORE!
From all the things I can't report there are some things I can. The first is that I have expanaded "the family." I've actually pulled back into Old Sydney Town with a Samsung Q1P in my pocket (figuratively speaking). This little device now rounds up my Samsung trio to include the Q1, Q1B and Q1P. In the next few days I'll post more thoughts but let me know what I need to cover off for you! I'm pretty excited about having the P as it is the only Samsung with a Pentium M; so multitasking is just around the corner - now Kevin Tofel and I have even more in common than ever. Make sure you read some of his latest posts regarding his interactions with a Samsung Q1P.
In other news I also managed to get my hands on a Medion UMPC, albeit a demo (non-working) unit. Whilst I could not boot the device I can assure you it probably runs OK. What was interesting was the form factor. Not only did it feel good in hand but it also was quite funky! The slide-out keyboard concept is functional and I can only imagine it is going to become a common feature as we see more manufacturers enter the market.
So enough unsaid said. Stay well, speak soon.
