Samsung demos first Microsoft Origami device

Antony Savvas

Samsung Electronics is demonstrating the first device designed around Microsoft’s much publicised Origami project at this week’s CeBIT show in Germany.

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.
