Now that I impulsively ordered a Samsung Q1, I’m scouring the web for every review I can find. Most of them provide similar impressions, which is I why I found it interesting to come across two reviews by PC Pro: one of the of the Samsung Q1 and one of the Vusys Dokodemo, which is basically the same as the "eo" model that TabletKiosk and others are offering under different names.

The interesting part is that the same reviewer took the same approach with both devices. When you put the two reviews together by Ross Burridge, you have a virtual-comparison review of the two UMPCs. I won’t draw any conclusions for you; instead, I’ll point you to the reviews and let you comment away. Oh and don’t worry, I can’t keep my comments to myself, so I’m sure to join in.

  1. I really have not experience any problem with the Touch screen in my eo. The screen is less sensitive and that was done to avoid problems when you are taking notes, the major concern that you find in some Q1 owners. The device is hot and the processor could be a little bit slower than the Q1 I agree, but I have been even using Visual Studio 2005 on it and it works a lot faster than in my old Pentium III at 600 MHz Laptop. The battery life a the only real issue that can be mentioned. TabletKiosk, VIA and AMTek are working on this issue and we are all hopping that they will find a solution. Don’t get me wrong, the Q1 is greate but I really like better the hardware button/mouse configuration of the eo that’s the main reason why I have not returned back. That and my 1GB of RAM and 7200 RPM HDD ;)

  2. Another point, for Gamers, I think that the eo is better. I have seen reports of games that can be played in the Q1 that works perfectly in the eo. For example: Age of the Empires II and Diablo. So, the eo is not a bad device. But it has issues that need to be addressed.
