Samsung adds a dash of innovation to its latest netbook/tablet mashup

Earlier today, Samsung unveiled its sexy 9 Series notebook which seems to be aiming squarely at Apple's MacBook Air. Next up is the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series.

The Sliding PC 7 Series features an Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.66GHz, and can be equipped with either a 32GB or 64GB SSD. As is the case with most netbooks, this one comes packing Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB of DD2 memory, and a 10.1" (1366x768) display.

Where's Samsung's latest offering differs, is that its screen is also touch capable and can slide to cover the keyboard giving you a slate/tablet form-factor to work with. To aide in the tablet experience, Samsung includes its Touch Launcher software.

"The Samsung 7 Series is creating a category unto itself, with a total solution that is not only chic and convenient for content consumption, but also versatile enough for more intensive computing and content creation," said Scott Ledterman, director of mobile PC product marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. 

“Innovative designs based on Intel Atom processors offer not only improved performance and sleeker devices, but also new, creative form factors,” added Doug Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel's Netbook and Tablet Group.

Other features include a 4-in-1 media reader, HDMI port, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and optional WiMAX or 3G wireless connectivity.

The Sliding PC 7 Series measures 10.47" x 6.88" x 0.78" and weighs in at a scant 2.18 pounds. The lithium-polymer battery provides battery life of up to 9 hours.

The device will be available beginning in March with a price tag of $699.
