    Otterbox of Fort Collins, Colorado now has tough-as-nails cases for the Samsung Q1 Ultra line of UMPCs. It costs $80 and comes in your choice of yellow or black.

  • Samsung Q1 Ultra UMPC: Huh. Ok.

    Another day, another UMPC. The Samsung Q1 was the hottest thing since sliced bread about two years ago, but now that they’ve released the super Ultra version, I’m pretty sure we’re all yawning a bit. I mean they didn’t even call it the Q1. They just stuck an Ultra on there and called it a day. It’s got a split QWERTY keyboard, thumb buttons, and a $799 price tag… Read More

    What a shock. I am stunned. The carrier with the coolest phones, most awesome rate plans, and best service ever, Sprint Nextel, posted a loss for Q1 of 2007.

Thanks to the rusty launch of Windows Vista, Mac Sales have shot up almost 30% in the first quarter of 2007. Does this mean that Apple is finally swooping in and conquering 50% of the PC market? No, but it means Apple is not the same company it was 10, even 5 years ago. This new boost in Mac sales… Read More

  • Motorola Sales Not RIZNG

    Bad news for all you INVSTRS out there: Motorola sales are sinking and it’s not subtle. The telecom giant has posted a loss of a whopping $181 million for Q1 alone. Decreasing sales of mobile handsets contributed greatly as sales have declined 15% to only $5.4 billion. I’m really surprised Motorola didn’t see this coming. You can only keep releasing the same slimmed down… Read More

  • Samsung Q1/Q30 Devices Use Solid State Flash Memory

    Instead of burdening their ultra-portable devices with hard disks that use more power, generate more heat, and tend to break when moved about too much, Samsung’s placing a Solid State Disk (SSD) into their Q1 and Q30 mobile devices. The Q30 is a 12.1-inch laptop, and the Q1 is an UMPC with a 32GB SSD. The new Q1, compared to the old Hard Drive Q1, can boot up 25% to 50% faster, and has… Read More
