Samsung Origami gizmo universally slated
,----[ Quote ]
| Stephen H. Wildstrom at Business Week, like almost everybody, believes the
| Q1 is "seriously overpriced" ? it's about £800 here in the UK -- and
| suffers from "sluggish performance" and "mediocre" battery life.
| PC Magazine saw it as "just another questionable attempt by Bill Gates
| to revive the Slate Tablet" and awarded two and half stars out of five.
| Will Stapley in Persional Computer World was more generous, however,
| giving the Q1 four stars out of five, despite admitting "we're strugglingt
| o work out who it's aimed at". Will also squeezes out a plum from
| Samsung -- pre-orders are only in their "hundreds" in the UK.

around with a strap on the shoulder. All others use a Palm handheld. The
Nokia 770 looks tempting as well:
