Samsung introduces Sliding PC 7, a unique Windows tablet
Bridging the gap between tablets and Netbooks, the Sliding PC 7 series is a funky spin on a Windows ultraportable.
LAS VEGAS--Now here's a new idea...how about a tablet that runs on Windows instead of Android? Samsung's newly announced Sliding PC 7 is a funky hybrid touch-screen device with its own slide-out keyboard. It's a revamp on the idea of a Netbook, and an attempt to finally make a Windows tablet work a little bit better.
The 10.1-inch mini-laptop has a striking design, and has a multitouch screen so it can operate in both tablet and Netbook-esque format.
Specs are Netbook-esque: an Intel Atom Z670 CPU, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 32 or 64GB SSD drive, and a 1,366x768 10-inch screen, along with 3G and WiMax connectivity. At 10.47 x 6.88 x .78 inches and 2.18 pounds, it's larger than an iPad but smaller than many 10-inch Netbooks.We look forward to giving this a try soon...
