Samsung has combined a netbook and tablet to create its new Sliding PC 7, a 10.1 inch 1366 x 768-resolution touchscreen tablet equipped with a full slide out keyboard.
The new device runs Windows 7 and is powered by an Intel Atom Z670 CPU, 2GB of RAM with either 32 or 64GB of solid state drive storage that allows it to boot in around 20 seconds. For connectivity the Samsung Sliding PC 7 can use either 3G or WiMAX.
The PC7 weighs in at 2.18 lb and is just 0.78 of an inch thick, when the keyboard is hidden and is fitted with USB and HDMI ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, an ambient light sensor, and a 1.3 megapixel webcam and its six-cell lithium-polymer will provide up to nine hours of use on a single charge.
Samsung hopes to start shipping their new Sliding PC 7 in March and its expected to retail for around $699
