BostonHerald reviewed Samsung Q1 and concluded that the UMPC is not a bad concept. It’s easy to carry around, and apart from the annoyances, the touch screen is an intuitive interface that’s much nicer than the touch pads of regular laptops.

But integration and battery life need to improve before the UMPC is going to find its market. Microsoft has a track record as a tenacious improver, and its hardware partners will no doubt figure this one out.
