Samsung Q1 Ultra nearly available in Korea

That’s the best description I can come up with: nearly available. Akihibara News says that the product will be available soon in Korea, but there’s no clear dates or time frame. Worldwide distribution will likely follow quickly, so the "May availability" could be on target. The Korean model includes HSDPA and WiBRO which has me thinking of moving around the world before the end of the month. ;)

If you haven’t seen good close-up shots of the Q1 Ultra-squared Ultra Ultra Mobile PC, Akihabara has excellent pics, which I assume to be direct from Samsung. I love the movement of the stereo speakers to the sides of the device, and I also noted that the power switch is for Power and Hold. Is the AVS functionality gone or moved to a different control, I wonder?

The battteries are not compatible. The Ultra one has a completely different shape and is positioned differently on the device.

Hi Kevin, Thank you … and I’ll let you know if I find out too. It would go against the laws of planned obsolesence for the battery to be compatible, but you never know. I was pleasantly surprised to know that the extended battery for the p1510 is compatible with the p1610 (although the casing changed very little). Anyway, thank you again for replying. /Jamie

Jamie, I’m only judging from my own experience as a Q1 and Q1 extended battery owner: I’d say no, not likely. If you look at the pictures, it’s hard to tell however. I’ll see if we can dig up some pics of the battery for the Ultra-squared.

This is sort of a random question but does anybody know if the Ultra Ultra (ha!) will be compatible with the Q1 extended battery? Don’t ask me how but I have the battery and no Q at the moment. I definitely want one and I’m thinking about the Vista Q1p, but wondering if I should wait for the fancy new not-quite-yet-available-in-Korea model.

You’re not being picky at all! My bad and I’m sure it has NOTHING at all do with the confusing product naming scheme. ;) Fixing now and thanks!
