Samsung announced a $2,000 price for its first UMPC (origami) in Korea.

The UMPC concept is already questionable, to put a $2,000 price-tag on it will not help sales. For $2,000 you get a Apple MacBook Pro for instance.

The Samsung Sens Q1 has a 7" screen, 900MHz Intel Celeron M, 40GB HDD, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2. The Korean Q1 comes with DVB-T tuner and some other accessories. Still a $2,000 price-tag does not make sens(e).

There are now other reports in the Korean media that put the price of the Samsung Sens Q1 at $1,200, which would be closer to reason, but still to high. Apparently Samsung will release a cheaper UMPC later this year.More details on Engadget.
By the way, Japanese notebook export experts Dynamism is prepared to sell you a Samsung Sens Q1.
