Samsung to use AMD processors for next UMPC

The Korea Times writes Samsung has made a deal with AMD to make its Q1 Ultra-Mobile PC a lot cheaper:
According to The Korea Times, subsidies from Korea Telecom in conjunction with the switch to AMD processors can make the Q1 drop from its Korean price of 1.2 million won ($1,267) to the equivalent of $739 or below—a whopping 41.6% cut.

The Q1 could go down from $1,099.99 to just $642 if the same plunge occurred in the U.S., although it's not clear what kind of drop—if any—users outside South Korea can expect.
