Equipped with Windows 7 OS and powered by the Intel Atom processor platform
Samsung Electronics America, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, has launched its first sliding tablet PC at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The sliding tablet PC is equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 OS and powered by the upcoming Intel Atom processor platform, currently code-named ‘Oak Trail’.
The PC 7 Series maximises the benefits of a tablet PC with its compact, light design, and incorporates a sliding keyboard for easy typing, enhanced productivity and performance.
In addition, its display slides up to reveal a physical keyboard giving the user the option of a multi-touch display or full keyboard and mouse interface.
The company said the new Sliding PC 7 Series is packed into a briefcase and can be used for making presentations or for recording data on the fly.
The six-cell lithium-polymer battery and Eco Light Sensor, which conserves energy and adjusts screen brightness based on available ambient light, allows the 7 Series to last for up to 9 hours.
The company said that the Sliding PC 7 Series is available in either 32GB or 64GB models, and features expandable storage with the 4-in-1 memory card reader.
The Sliding PC 7 is equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, and comes with a built-in webcam and audio speaker.
In addition, the Sliding PC 7 Series comes with several pre-loaded applications that are optimised for the touch screen display.
The company said the 7 Series acts as a connective hub with other devices to improve the entertainment experience while its AllShare enables users to control, search, swap and play videos, photos, and music across a full range of DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified Samsung devices.
The new Samsung 7 Series is scheduled to be available in March 2011.
