Check out the full story for all the details on how the Samsung Q1 can be used to help you out in non-traditional ways. Would you ever take your laptop into Home Depot? Probably not, but a UMPC is a great sized device that you actually may take in and show the staff. You could use OneNote Mobile with a camera phone in many interesting ways, i.e. inventory your household goods, inventory of your DVD collection, documenting a project with photos, and more. Chris Pratley has a great OneNote blog and even shows you how you can take a photo of a business card and use OneNote Mobile as a way to search on the image of the card. Have you ever used OneNote Mobile in a unique situation?
