The device is bigger than a personal digital assistant (PDA), such as a Palm or HP iPaq, and runs on the Windows XP operating system.
Pitched as an “ultra-mobile” device, the Samsung product is called the Q1, and is equipped with a 900MHz Intel Celeron microprocessor.
The system is equipped with 500MB of RAM, which is more powerful than many entry-level laptops on the market.
The Q1 supports both Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth short-range wireless access. The Q1 is also equipped with touch-screen controls and a multi-media player.
Microsoft and Intel are expected to release further details about the Origami project later today.
