Samsung UMPC Coming to a Store Near You

by Reads (11,160)

When Samsung introduced one of the first Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs), the company said the device, called the Q1, would be available only online. Today, however, Samsung announced that this model will be available in all the Fry’s Electronics stores across the United States, as well as in some Best Buy stores in Texas.

The price for this device, though, hasn’t changed. It still costs $1,100, much more than was originally envisioned for this class of mobile computers.
