Hands-on with Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series hybrid

Here at OSM we’re bringing you news from CES 2011 and Samsung products we’ve already posted about include the Samsung 9 Series notebook and the Samsung Galaxy Player. This time we’re bringing you news about a hands-on review with the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series, a tablet-come-notebook hybrid.

The device has been shown at CES and Barbara Krasnoff over on Computerworld had a look at it and reports that the change between using it as a tablet or a notebook is smooth. It has a 10-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution and the keyboard is produced by pushing the display back which is pretty ingenious. There will be 35 apps available for it on release and it has the usual ports such as SD slot, HDMI and USB.

There’s also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and the battery should last you 9 hours on a single charge. The price will be $699 and the release date is in March. Meanwhile if you want to see more head over to an article by Joanna Stern of Engadget who has had the opportunity for a hands-on review and there’s also a video available at the link. However the price and release date on this article varies as it quotes a price of $599 and release date of May. Make of that what you will!

    I like the portability it will have and also the keybord makes it alot quicker when you need to write something long.
