Samsung SPH 9200; Best UMPC design EVER?

The SPH P9200 makes other Samsung UMPC’s look like garbage…

SamsungP9200

The way the P9200 opens is hard to explain so maybe this will help…

The P7200 will have the following specs:

  • Windows XP
  • Via C7-M processor (BS, but maybe you need to look at the design again)
  • 30 GB hard drive
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • WiFi
  • HSDPA
  • WiMAX
  • Sim Card slot (hopefully with built in GSM line… but most likely only for data)
  • 5 inch touch display with a resolution of 800x 480

The P9200 can also be used like this:

P92003

Conclusion:

The P9200 is no doubt an excellent UMPC. This being the first prototype explains the lack of good specs. However in the near future Samsung will definitly release another version with Windows Vista, better battery performance and a faster CPU. There is no word on Pricing or release data but we will keep you posted!!
