I got a chance to check out Samsung’s new Sliding Series convertible tablet today and while I didn’t get to play with the software, the hardware is pretty intriguing. We’ve seen plenty of convertible tablets over the past few years, but most follow the same tried and true design of connecting the display to he keyboard with a swivel which leads to a kind of bulky design.

The Slider actually tucks the keyboard away behind the tablet when you’re not using it, and you pull the keyboard down under the screen while a sliding mechanism locks the display into place. It makes more sense if you see it in video, so check out my hands-on video after the break.

The computer is designed to run Windows 7 Home Premium and it will ship with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom Oak Trail chip, Windows 7 Home Premium, and a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. It can support optional 3G and 4G wireless broadband, and comes standard with 802.11b/g/n WiFi, HDMI output, and a 1.3MP camera. It’s due out in March for $699 and up.

  1. Interesting…but I don’t think you can bend the screen forward much more then what we saw. That could be and issue for some.

  2. I have only one question: The display will close the standard way (the display in front of the keyboard)?, for transport purposes…

    Happy New Year…
