Samsung launched its Windows-based Origami mini-tablet device in the US yesterday.

The Q1 mini-tablet has an Intel chip, a seven-inch screen, built-in short-range wireless Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi capabilities, and is selling for $1,099 (£640).

The Q1, which was launched at the CeBit show in Germany in March, is equipped with an Intel low-voltage Celeron processor running at 900MHz.

It has 512Mbytes of memory and runs Windows XP. The device will be launched in the UK, China, France, and Germany later this month. Pricing for these markets has so far not been confirmed.

The Q1 has a standard battery life of up to 3.5 hours, and is the first device to reach the market as part of a joint Microsoft/Intel effort to promote the use of a new range of “ultra-mobile” devices.
