Samsung Blu-Ray and UMPC

Samsung this evening officially revealed the second generations of its signature movie player and handheld PC. The BD-P1200 maintains the full 1080p resolution support and ability to upscale DVDs to 1080p of its P1000 ancestor but now adds HDMI 1.3 support for deeper colors and a quick 120Hz response time when linked to the newest HDTV sets. The price has dropped in spite of the added features, Samsung boasts: the P1200 will sell for $800 when it ships in March, a full $200 lower than its predecessor.

The company has also refreshed its Q1 ultra-mobile PC. The new version, dubbed the Q1P SSD, adds a 32GB solid state flash drive in place of the mobile hard drives that predominate in UMPCs. The storage offers a major improvement in responsiveness, according to the Korean electronics maker: the Q1P SSD can read information nearly 300 times faster than challengers and can write it to the drive 150 percent faster as well, potentially cutting boot times in half. Samsung has not revealed pricing or ship dates, though the SSD model should command a premium over counterparts with hard disks.
