Meet Samsung’s Tablet Netbook hybrid the Slider 7

It’s true, Samsung has prevealed a new Windows 7 based Tablet Netbook hybrid at this years CES in Las Vegas. The Slider-7 is expected to retail at around $699 and slated to hit the market in March 2011.

The Slider-7 weighs in at 2.18 lbs with a portrait or landscape 10.1″ touch screen display complete with sliding keyboard. Tablet operation with expanded keyboard should boost productivity for those that need a two in one solution. Sleek and modern, the Slider is complete with a webcam, running core home version Windows 7 operating system, a 4-in-one card reader, hdmi port, as well as USB for your extended devices.

The Windows 7 touch screen Slider by Samsung opens up an arena of Windows based touch applications, and comes with several on board at purchase.

Battery life on the Slider is estimated at 9 hours. As an aside, comparatively, we run HP Mini 210-1070NRs and get on average 12-14 hours unplugged without the touchscreen, so 9 hours could be possible in Samsung’s recommended operating mode with the Lithium Polymer battery.

    Wow! That looks sweet. I want one for sure. Love the blue keyboard. I have a 55″ Samsung LED TV and have been amazed at the quality of their products. My next phone upgrade with Verizon will most likely be to a Samsung too. Thanks for sharing Benn 🙂

    Benn, this is pretty awesome. My wife recently got an iPad, and we’re both Mac junkies, but this is pretty slick. I don’t know. Might make me convert…okay, not convert. Just..this once. 🙂

    I’ll have to see the demo, I’ve replaced enough slider phones for the kids that I’m not sure yet, but it is promising, and I know a handful of Realtors that will be excited to have Windows based technology back in play.

    If it has Bluetooth and can be slightly upgraded in specs without breaking the bank his may be my answer to replacing my trustworthy but old Thinkpad X60 tablet. I mean this is ALMOST an iPad/MacBook Air combo 🙂
