Samsung Q1EX

Samsung at CES unveiled the latest addition to its series of UMPCs, the Q1EX, featuring a VIA Nano CPU instead of the Intel processors that were chosen for the rest of the Q1 line. The device provides a 7-inch touchscreen that presents the Windows Vista operating system, while users can take advantage of an integrated GPS receiver and a 1.3 megapixel webcam. The ultraportable supports HSPA and WiMAX, while the company claims the battery life extends to 4.5 hours.

The Q1EX lacks the keyboard and additional controls of the current Q1 Ultra and Ultra Premium models. The reasons for switching to VIA's CPU remains unknown, although the chip-maker was also at CES to tout the Nano as a competitive product in the world of low power-drain processors with high performance-per-watt ratios.

Samsung has not yet announced pricing information or a suggested launch date. [Via GottaBeMobile]
