Slashgear at CeBIT: Samsung took home “Best Hardware” award for Solid State Drive

CeBIT puts on an annual award highlighting the best in show chosen and voted by CHIP editors. The selection process started back in January. Samsung Solid State Drive (SSD) is one of three nominees, including AMD 690G Chipset and ASUS XG Station.

Congrats to Samsung for taking home CeBIT’s most coveted award in the category of Best Hardware for the SSD. Note: The acceptance video below is in German.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the SSD for review!

SlashGear at CeBIT: Samsung F700 Hands-on

SlashGear at CeBIT: Samsung F700 Hands-on

The Samsung Ultra Smart F700 has been more than adequately covered on SlashGear and My iPhone. What’s been missing is our very own hands-on with the handset. Others have video coverage of the Ultra Smart F700, but none of them will show you what you’re about to watch. Gizmodo ran an article titled “Samsung F700 Video Tease: Look, But Don’t Touch.” You’ll see that this isn’t the case, because I’m all over it!

SlashGear at CeBIT: Everything you want to know about the Samsung Q1 Ultra!

SlashGear at CeBIT: Everything you want to know about the Samsung Q1 Ultra!

The Samsung Q1 Ultra is possible one of the best ultra-mobile pc ever created. This time, I really mean it. No, seriously, I really, really, really mean it this time. There isn’t much time for me to show you all the video footages from the press conference, but over the next day or so I’ll upload them for you to see for yourself.

There’s no doubt that the Q1 Ultra is eye-catching and practical in design. Its QWERTY keypad and stylus pen makes it practical and mobile without any extra accessories.

Long live, the Q1 Ultra’s battery life! The Q1 Ultra offers over 3.5 hours on a standard 4-cell battery, while the optional 6-cell battery guarantees over 6.8 hours.

Here’s the image gallery for the new Samsung q1 Ultra. The official press announcement is in 20 minutes – so I won’t have much time to upload the video I took earlier this morning. I’ll upload the walk through videos for your viewing pleasure as soon as the press conference ends.

A few highlights of the q1 Ultra include the split keyboards on the left and right hand side. There’s now 1Gb DDR RAM, 0.3-megapixel camera on the front for video conferencing or whatever you want to use it for. There is also a second camera mounted on the backside.

SlashGear at CeBIT 2007: Navigon’s very own navigation system

SlashGear at CeBIT 2007: Navigon’s very own navigation system

Navigon has now made its first steps into making its own hardware: the 7100 and 5100 navigation system at CeBIT 2007. The highlight features of the 7100 includes Bluetooth hands-free system, 4.3-inch color display in an easy-to-view 16:9 widescreen format, new “Real View” function, exclusive lane assistance, free traffic jam reports, voice input, and PIN code security function. The Navigon 5100 is very similar the 7100 with the exception of the 3.5-inch color display.

So what’s the big deal about this new feature called “Reality View”? If you have ever used a navigational system, you may have noticed how confusing it is to read traffic conditions. This view mode displays signposts realistically, giving you the information needed to move into the correct lane easily. As mentioned above, the 16:9 color display intelligently formats the Navigon 7100 with 2D or 3D map display selection.

Samsung Q1Ultra – name confirmed and photo-op held

Samsung Q1Ultra – name confirmed and photo-op held

Amen for Steve!  Risking life, limb and camera the plucky pilot of the UMPCPortal squared up to pushy security guards to snap some photos of Samsung's latest UMPC, in the process confirming that it really is going to be called the Q1 Ultra.  Naming issues aside, the unit itself looks pretty gorgeous (though the original Q1 was no slouch in that department either) and seems to have some arching to the design that probably makes typing on the thumbboard easier.
