Samsung Series 7 Slate PC Hands-On Images

Updated on 06 September 2011 by

You’ve seen the hands-on video and the blinding speeds of the CPU and disk of the Samsung Slate PC but you still might be hungry for more. I am!  The Samsung Series 7 Slate PC is a seriously impressive bit of engineering and proof that Core i5 can be designed into a chassis of under 900gm. The Slate PC will come with dock and keyboard for an estimated 1100 Euro entry-level price. It’s basically an Ultrabook without a keyboard but for many, this modular approach with attention to pen and finger touch details could be exactly what they’ve been looking for. I’m certainly taking a closer look at this one myself and hope to have a review device as soon as it’s available.

    This looks very promising. I cant wait to see what Microsoft brings with Windows 8. It really could be what these devices need!

    Am I the only one to find it irritating, that the Keyboard is a separate piece, not a dock that joins and lock with the slate into a Laptop form?

    Yes, the slate form factor caters for use while standing. But if I can find a seat (but no table/desk) and wants to type more comfortably or quickly, such multi-piece solution is unmanagable.

    I’ve always thought that the perfect slate dock would be a keyboard with a built in second battery and DVD (or Bluray) burner. When docked it would have a normal laptop form factor and features.

    Couldn’t agree more. Asus transformer with a x86 hart will be the perfect device.

    I heard that this product uses Super PLS panel. Is it true?

  6. Luc says:

    Yes it is :)

    Review mentions it here too –

    yet another slate with a dual digitizer that DOESN’T come with a pen storage area, why do people forget the most basic needs
    in the quest for trying to get the ‘thinnest slate’ award?

  8. Chippy says:

    The funny thing is that Samsung found room on the 5.3″ Galaxy Note for a pen!

  9. Marauderz says:

    the note looks like a normal resistive(?) toothpick style stylus. digitizer pens are wider in diameter due to their electronics. and not to mention that its hard to scribble with a toothpick.

    The Samsung S Pen is probably similar to N-Trig, combining a pressure sensitive pen with a capacitive touch screen. Basically a poor man’s Wacom digitizer, it’s cheaper and less capable but works well enough and is easier to integrate into these tablets.

    Though the S Pen has the advantage over N-Trig in that Samsung is helping to develop apps to take advantage of it and is releasing a SDK package for developers.

    While another tablet that also found room to include the Pen is Lenovo’s Thinkpad Tablet, which has pretty good handwriting recognition.

  11. Marauderz says:

    in the end of the day i just want to know why these ppl didnt make the pen storable within the device itself, was it
    – they didnt know any better?
    – they decided that making it thinner is more important than making it user friendlier?
    – they keep thinking of Steve Jobs “If they included a stylus in the device, than they’ve done it wrong.” talk about the iPad?
