This Samsung Sliding PC has an identity crisis

  • Samsung has debuted a $700 "Sliding" computer at CES 2011 that can't seem to decide whether it's a PC or tablet.

    Equipped with Windows 7 and powered by Intel's Atom Oak Trail platform, the PC 7 supposedly maximizes the benefits of a tablet, while incorporating a sliding keyboard to facilitate easy typing.

    So, how does it work?

    Well, the display slides up to reveal a physical keyboard - providing the user with a multi-touch display or full keyboard and mouse interface.

    Additional specs include:

    • Weight - 2.2 pounds.
    • Brightness - 340-nit.
    • Display - 10.1-inches.
    • Resolution - 1366 x 768.
    • RAM - 2GB DDR2.
    • Storage - 32 or 64GB SSD drive.
    • Connectivity - 3G and WiMax
    • Battery - 6 cell, 9 hours.
    • Availability - March 2011.
