Samsung Slate 7 PC: You’re portable PC

Samsung has out did themselves again this time it’s with the Samsung Slate 7. This PC offers all of the features of a full-sized laptop in an extremely portable package, providing highly mobile users with the computing power they need for maximum productivity anywhere you go.

The Samsung Slate 7 PC was made for people who want true PC functionality while on the move, This slim PC is said to weigh less than two pounds, but do not be fooled just because this computer weights less doesn’t mean the Slate is not a fully powered PC. The Slate has a 11.6-inch screen, powerful Intel Core™ i5 processor, a full version of Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Professional operating system and an up to 128 GB.

You have a couple of options to type on the Slate, the first of course is using the on screen keyboard or write naturally on the screen using an electromagnetic pen. Samsung is including a dock, equipped with more serious connectivity like HDMI, along with a Bluetooth keyboard. Both the keyboard and the dock feel substantial and well made, essentially turning the tablet into a full Windows 7 computer.

The Slate 7 also has an integrated microphone and dual 2MP (front) / 3MP (rear) cameras can record audio/visual files, which can be stored and shared via the full-sized USB port or Wi-Fi, WiMAX and HSPA connection.

As you know this tablet of course will not have too many apps, there aren’t really apps for Windows, Samsung has worked with Microsoft to deliver some core services, like Twitter, Facebook and music a player, Battery life on the Slate is said to be up to 7 hours, Samsung also has what is called Power Plus technology which means that the Series 7 Slate battery will retain 80 percent of the original battery capacity for up to 1,500 charges giving users a battery that works whenever and wherever they need it, even after three years of use.

The Samsung Series 7 Slate is scheduled to be available starting October 2, 2011. The price range is $1,099 – $1,349, depending on the memory and which Windows 7 you choose. I’m actually excited to see for myself what the Samsung Slate 7 is capable of.
