CES: Ready for the ‘sliding PC’? Samsung hopes so


This puppy is something Samsung is calling ‘the first sliding tablet PC.’

Samsung said it has cooked up a new device—dubbed the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series available in March—that offers the benefits of a laptop with key features of a tablet. The OS is Windows 7 and the chip is Intel’s Atom Oak Trail. The general idea is to offer a light tablet that includes a sliding keyboard for easy typing. If you’re a content heavy person, this gizmo may just make some sense.
