Samsung Creates a New Category of Mobile PC with the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series


Samsung today announced the launch of its first sliding tablet PC at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and powered by the upcoming Intel Atom processor platform, currently code-named "Oak Trail," the PC 7 Series maximizes the benefits of a tablet PC with its compact design, and incorporates a sliding keyboard for easy typing. The display slides up to reveal a physical keyboard giving the user the option of a multi-touch display or full keyboard and mouse interface.

"With the proliferation of tablet devices, there is a demand from consumers that want the elegance, ease-of-use and portable form factor of a tablet but also the familiarity of a notebook," said Scott Ledterman, director of mobile PC product marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. "At first glance, the Samsung PC 7 Series is a compact, light-weight tablet featuring an intuitive touchscreen. However, once the display is slid into place, it reveals a physical keyboard that offers users the familiar keyboard/touchpad interface. The Samsung 7 Series is creating a category unto itself, with a total solution that is not only chic and convenient for content consumption, but also versatile enough for more intensive computing and content creation."

Weighing just 2.2 pounds, the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series is easily packed into a briefcase and can be used for making presentations or for recording data on the fly. The 7 Series is suited for both indoor and outdoor use with 340-nit brightness 10.1-inch display supported by an HD resolution (1366 x 768). With its slim and light weight design, the 7 Series allows for mobility without compromising functionality in personal or professional settings.

For those who prefer physical keyboards over a touch screen for quickly typing up notes or browsing the Web, the 7 Series features a full, 80/81-key keyboard sleekly tucked away under the display. At the user?s convenience, the keyboard slides out completely, creating a laptop-like interface coupled with the touch capabilities on the display.

The six-cell lithium-polymer battery and innovative 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.

Available in either 32GB or 64GB models, the 7 Series features expandable storage with the 4-in-1 memory card reader. The solid-state hard drive and Samsung's Fast Start feature powers the 7 Series in as little as 15 seconds, or restores from Hibernate and Sleep modes in a mere 3 seconds. The SSD also fully supports multi-tasking not only in the Windows mode, but also in touch mode, so users never have to slow down.



Users with entertainment in mind will benefit from high-resolution graphics and an HDMI port for sharing content on an HDTV. Additionally, the device has a built-in webcam and audio speaker.

The Sliding PC 7 Series also comes with several pre-loaded applications that are optimized for the touch screen display. This includes Samsung's applications for music, video, photos, note taking, weather, clock, compass and many more. In addition, Microsoft Bing Maps provides tools that help get more out of search, including the Bing voice search, which enables users to type with their voice to find what they?re looking for.

The Samsung 7 Series acts as a connective hub thanks to Samsung's device-to-device connection solutions. Samsung 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, ranging from cameras and smart phones to TVs and PCs.

The Samsung 7 Series is scheduled to be available in March 2011, with a starting price of $699 MSRP. Key Specs:
