Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series
Samsung debuts its sliding tablet PC with full sized keyboard…
Samsung unveiled its range of tablet-esque devices at this year’s CES. Perhaps the most interesting of which came in the form of the Sliding PC 7 series tablet.
In a similar fashion to the Lenovo U1 Hybrid, Samsung hopes to bridge the gap between tablet PC’s and laptops by offering a touch-screen and traditional keyboard in one device.
The Sliding PC 7 series will feature the upcoming Intel Atom “Oak Trail” processor and will run Microsoft Windows 7.

The multi-touch 10.1” display sports a 1366 x 768 resolution, and a brightness of 340-nit which, Samsung says, allows the tablet to be view easily in, or outdoors.
