Microsoft Origami mini laptop unveiled

Antony Savvas

Samsung Electronics demonstrated the first mobile device designed around Microsoft's Origami project at the CeBit show in Germany last week.

Bigger than a personal digital assistant but smaller than a laptop, the Samsung Q1 product runs the Windows XP operating system. Marketed as an "ultra-mobile" device, it is equipped with a 900MHz Intel Celeron processor and has 500Mbytes of Ram, making it more powerful than many entry level laptops.

The Q1 supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth short-range wireless access. It has touch-screen controls and a multimedia player.
