UK mobile device retailer Expansys has become the first company in the UK to begin taking orders for the most talked-about device of the recent CeBIT – Samsung’s Q1 ultra-mobile PC.

The 22.8 x 14 x 2.7cm Samsung Q1 features a 7-inch, 800 x 480 LCD and runs on a 900MHz ultra-low voltage Celeron M processor and an Intel 915GMS chipset, with 512MB of 400MHz DDR 2 SDRAM and a 40GB, 1.8in hard drive. There’s also an integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and 10/100Mbps Ethernet networking, plus Bluetooth 2.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.

The device also includes SRS’ TruSurround sound 3D audio system, operating through the device’s twin speakers and Windows Media Player 10 with its wide array of supported audio and video formats, along with  Samsung’s own instant-on media playback software. There’s also a built-in GPS receiver and navigation software. Battery life is around 3.5 hours, according to Samsung.

Expansys expect the £800 machine to ship around the start of June.
