Windows on a tablet is crap. But the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series is the exception that proves the rule. Mostly because it has a slide out qwerty keyboard, transforming it from tablet to laptop in seconds.
Powered by the upcoming Oaktrail Atom processor, the tablet-cum-laptop offers a 10.1-inch multitouch 1366×768 screen, 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage and Windows 7. There are USB and HDMI outputs via a dongle, and an eight hour battery life (reportedly).
Samsung will preload the tablet with apps to make it usable as a tablet, and it will come with Office 2010 Starter edition pre-installed when it launches in the US in March (not sure on Aussie release dates yet). As you’d expect, there’s still no word on pricing.
