I've said for awhile that the Tablet PC is a solution in search of a problem; Microsoft's new Origami idea is helping prove me right. The Washington Post's Rob Pegoraro is highly unimpressed with Samsung's entry into the space. It ships with no CD/DVD player, which makes loading new software hard:
The tested Q1 arrived with almost no third-party software; a copy of Microsoft Office and last year's version of Norton AntiVirus were the only notable additions. The copy of Windows Media Player included an extra "skin" for that program, with large buttons meant to be selected with a thumb (should you want to employ something the size of two Walkmen duct-taped together as an MP3 player).
He also points out that the screen is small, and that using the Tablet interface for writing or typing is just painful. It only has 36 GB of disk, so you're better off with a video iPod if you want to store music and movies - it's smaller, and has more storage. With the screen size, using normal Windows apps is going to be painful (try using 800x600 resolution on your PC for an hour and see how you do). For $1100, this is an expensive door stopper that won't stop your door. I have no idea who the target market is; Since you can't slap a DVD into it, it's utility for watching movies while traveling is limited. It's too big to be an MP3 player. The screen is too small to be useful as a PC, and without a keyboard, it's not a desktop replacement.
