Ask Sam: you could win a Samsung Q1 UMPC



Samsung has put the holiday marketing in to high gear with this marketing site specific to the Samsung Q1 UMPC. The approach is appealing: you can question "Sam", played by a huge, fluffy dog wearing a Q1 around his neck. Sam will then tell you about the Samsung Q1 UMPC based on your question, provide specs, etc…all in all, a fun interactive approach including some funny videos. The shot above is from one where an airplane traveler struggles to use his bulky notebook in the cramped seats and has to pass up on the free coffee. Sam shows him what he’s missing by not using an ultra-mobile PC.

If a cute canine doesn’t do it for you, Samsung ups the ante by giving away two Q1 UMPCs each week for the next three weeks! I also noticed that Samsung is throwing in their USB keyboard with a travel case when you order a Q1. Special thanks to Chris for the heads up!



Hey, I don’t think the guys from England were being altogether serious!

Are the prices for these going to come down? $1000 is more than I want to pay. Get the price down to around $650 and I’ll get interested.

Hmm… I think Canada is the (51st state). You guys in the UK must be 52… :)


Oh please. This is on the Samsung USA site, as the URL clearly indicates. Why do you expect that every company on the face of the earth runs every raffle or give-away globally, just because internet sites are globally accessible?

I am sure if I were to go and look around European or Asian websites, I would find plenty of give-aways or specials that aren’t open to US residents…


And only for US Residents. We poor folk here in the UK (the 51st state!) just have to sit on our hands and drool. It’s just not cricket.
