-Hi! I'm Molly Wood from cnet.com here at CES 2011 and I am taking a first look at the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series. There's a lot of S sounds in that name, but this is in fact a- it looks like a tablet in my hands, a 10-inch tablet with a 10 x 16 display. But check it out, it actually slides open, tilts up, and become a netbook. Now, this was debuted at Samsung's press conference here at CES. There was some "Oohs" and "Ahs" from the crowd. It is a Windows 7 tablet actually. Samsung has become known for doing Android devices like the Galaxy Tab. This is actually running Windows 7. But they say it will have a full tablet style app ecosystem and then function as a full-fledged netbook. Other than that, this is an early prototype version. We don't know too much about specs. It is running an Intel 1.5 gigahertz processor with 4 gigabytes of onboard storage. It looks like it does have HDMI out which is kind of a nice plus. Samsung says this is not CES Vaporware. They say it's gonna ship later this quarter and be competitively priced. So far, that to us, sounds like code for $500 to $700, but we'll have to find out. For cnet.com at CES 2011, I'm Molly Wood and this is the Samsung Sliding PC 7 series.
