Communicator Q1 Ultra

The speed and versatility of a Windows XP computer with go anywhere portability

The Communicator Q1 Ultra is the first Windows computer built by a major manufacturer
that offers all the features required as a platform for a communication/speech "device".
It is small and portable (1.7 pounds), uses regular Windows XP (not Windows CE),
with 2 front mounted speakers (excellent volume), and a touch screen that accepts finger input... a much lower cost then speech devices sold by our competitors (see comparison chart below)

The Communicator Q1 Ultra sets the standard for a touch screen enabled speech device.

The Q1 Ultra combines the speed and versatility of a Windows XP computer with the go
anywhere portability of a handheld computer. "Instant on" (no waiting for boot up) and built-in touch screen.

Install any Windows XP software, surf the internet (wirelessly), communicate,
take it to school or work and more....without compromise.
