Samsung’s Sliding PC 7 Coming Soon!
Samsung announced its new Sliding PC 7 tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in January. Consumers can now pre-order the device for $649. The Samsung TX100 has a 10.1″ capacitive touchscreen that operates on a 1366 x 768 resolution display, carries a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor and comes with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, along with a 32GB SSD.
It seems that we are seeing a trend with tablets going for the solid-state drive option when it comes to storage. This is a smart move because solid-state technology was specifically designed for users on the go who wanted to compute without having their data susceptible to corruption (from normal wear and tear). In terms of connectivity, the device comes with a b/g/n WiFi, USB 2.0 and a SD card slot.
Samsung stated that they will bring 3G versions in the future, but have not mentioned anything on pricing for the 3G models. The slider also comes with a 1.3MP/3MP front-facing to rear camera and the unit weighs a total of 2.2 pounds with a retail price of $699. We expect the device to ship sometime in June, but haven’t received an official word from Samsung and so we are unable to pinpoint a date at this time. Take a look at the video below to see the Sliding PC 7 as it was unveiled at the CES 2011.
