One of our favorite tablets that we saw at CES this year was the Samsung Slide Series 7 convertible tablet PC. It was brimming with unique software and a GUI that really brought to life magazines and other apps. It has just appeared on pre-order via Amazon.
The Samsung Slide features 10.1 inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels on a back-lit LCD screen. Its core processor is run on Oak Trail 1.15 GHZ processor and has 2 GB of RAM. For storage it will feature two different models, a 32 gig and a 64 gig model. You can also further enhance the memory of your Samsung Slide Series 7 via the Micro SD port. It will also have an ambient light sensor to make the screen brighter or dimmer depending on your environment.
For internet connectivity you will have a 802.11b and 3G with WIMAX technology. You will have around 8 hours of battery life and you can further extend it by turning the WI-FI off. Other features of the device will include a USB 2.0 port, integrated stereo speakers, HDMI out a 1.3 MP front facing webcam, and all being run on the Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
The entire content distribution system for magazines is done by Tribune, which was the high point of our demo time with the tablet.
