Samsung Series 7 Slate to Compete with Transformer Book

Posted on 29 August 2012 by

Update: The Series 7 and Series 5 Slates have been officially launched as the ATIV Smart PC and ATIV  Smart PC Pro. [Engadget]

The detachable style ‘Ultraslate’ is going to be popular. The design has already been proven by ASUS with their Transformer range and many of us are already excited about the ASUS Transformer Book. The Samsung options – a Series 7 Slate with dock, is going to go head to head. We just spotted this video on Laptopmag’s YouTube channel and we’re expecting an article and official info to follow soon.

A version with Core i5 will sit alongside a slightly lighter version, the Series 5 Slate, with an Atom CPU inside allowing you to choose between power and battery life/weight.

Take note that the keyboard is said to have quite a bit of travel, a result of most of the electronics being behing the screen.

Pricing – $1199. $749 for the Series 5 (Intel Atom) version.

We’re on the lookout for official info.

    To clarify it starts at $649 without keyboard.
    But still I don’t quite get the price difference: Core i7 + 1080p = $370 extra?

    There’s also the new Samsung Ultra (180 degree keyboard like Yoga) which starts at $799. The 1366×768 resolution though is too low for me to consider.


    Samsung is bringing great products to the market and that is their plus point that’s why they are at the top in smart phone business and if they keep the pace like this in this area then one day they will be at the top in this field as well…
