Fancy A Tablet? Expansys Samsung Q1 Offer
Want a tablet that will let you do more than just consume content? Well you're in luck as Expansys currently have the Samsung Q1 Ultra at a rather excellent £369 - something of a bargain for a quality bit of kit. The webpage isn't entirely clear, but this looks like its the 6-cell battery model which runs five to six hours on a charge at the cost of a slight bulge on the left hand side of device. Personally I find it makes a good hand hold so it doesn't particularly bother me.
This is the 800 Mhz Intel powered unit with 1GB of memory and a 40 GB hard disk, running Windows XP Tablet Edition which means excellent handwriting recognition, the ability to run just about any software and two (count them) USB ports to add keyboards, mice, memory keys and 3G dongles. There's also a VGA out and SD Card slot so you could use it as a desk computer in a 'docked' configuration if you desire.
So if you are looking for a tablet this makes a lot more sense than some fruitier devices that do so much less...
