Samsung P9, the Future UMPC? (Video) *UPDATED*

by Reads (9,124)

Looks like Samsung is taking a step in the right direction with this multi-functional UMPC. It is still a concept at this time, but its sleek design is very appealing. It can be a portable computer, gaming device and media player.

UPDATE:

Unfortunately it’s not the P9. This UMPC is not even from Samsung. This sleek and innovative UMPC, with its detachable slider, is no more then a university design project. I was hoping we may see a design like this in the future, so maybe some manufactures will take a hint from this student’s design.

More manufacturers are turning away from the keyboardless UMPCs like the Samsung Q1. Asus, Fujitsu and now even HP are entering this subnotebook/UMPC market. The Eee PC has been a huge success for Asus and with many professionals and students preferring the lightweight, portable tablet notebooks it’s a no-brainer that all the other manufacturers would follow suit.

Check out the video of the Samsung P9 concept UMPC in action:

 

There is no word at this time if we will ever see this concept on the market or even a spec sheet. It looks very interesting though and the innovative split design, is similar to the Gateway One, but on a smaller scale. Being able to prop up the screen and detach the keyboard is a nice feature, imagine if it has a touchscreen too. This could be an Apple killer.
