So check it: every so often we find a juicy tip in our inbox, and today we sure got a doozy. One of our faithful readers -- who prefers to remain anonymous -- has sent in several slides featuring Samsung's followup to the Q1 UMPC, the Q2. While some of the specs appear to be identical to the beefed-up Q1P -- like the 7-inch touchscreen, 1GB of RAM, and 60GB hard drive -- other features, along with a revised form factor, are completely new to a model that we expect to be unveiled almost a year to the day after its predecessor, at CeBIT 2007. According to the PowerPoint presentation which you can view in the gallery below, the Q2 will sport an unknown Intel (not Via) CPU running Vista Home Premium, a 1,024 x 600 WSVGA resolution (no 800 x 600 here), two digital cameras (1.3 megapixel for "photography" and 0.3 megapixel for videoconferencing), and a fingerprint scanner. Most exciting, though, are your connectivity and input options; the Q2 tacks on a much-needed, albeit split QWERTY keyboard and -- get this -- Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi (802.11b/g), HSDPA, and WiBro. Yes, you read that right: three completely separate ways to get your 'net on. So for those of you who had given up hope on the UMPC platform following a disappointing first round of devices, Samsung has returned with an even more compelling product -- and by the time we start seeing those Viennagami machines, we suspect they'll have gotten it just right.
