In addition to a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam, ideal for videoconferencing, the device integrates an HDMI output and a USB 2.0 port through which content to load and to recharge the lithium-polymer battery that should provide, according to the producer, a close range to 9 hours per charge. In terms of connectivity, Samsung 7 Sliding TX100 offers 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Wi-MAX, and support for a module for broadband connections.

Known as the Samsung 7 Series in the US, the Samsung TX-100 is a 10' Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium laptop with a full qwerty keyboard. Slide the keyboard under the touchscreen and the TX-100 converts to an Apple iPad-like Tablet PC. It also includes a track pad, although you can still use the touchscreen too, allowing for an interesting experience with applications. And with Media Centre pre-installed, you can even consume entertainment in PC mode, or slide it back to watch as a tablet once again.

In its bowels, there's plenty of oomph. There's a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom Z670 (Oak Trail) processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 6-cell battery offering use of up to 9 hours. The Sliding PC 7 Series also contains a solid state drive of either 16GB or 32GB of storage, giving both extended life due to the absence of moving parts and faster access speeds. Naturally, Wi-Fi and USB 2.0 are offered too, as well as an extremely useful HDMI port for connection to a big screen or projector.

iPad fans should bear in mind that the keyboard means the Samsung TX-100 is pretty fat for a Tablet, however, and whether a convertible device is the best of both worlds or master of none may depend on the individual's needs. Indisputably - and predictably - the screen is good-looking, and running Windows 7 on a Tablet will be useful for many. We were also impressed with the keyboard, which for a small device is very nice to type on.

In tablet mode, there's a custom skin that allows you to swipe around through various apps and programs, which persists even when you pull out the keyboard from the back of the tablet. We didn't find it to be the fastest UI around, but it certainly seemed workable. Windows 7 isn't an ideal tablet interface, but will be more helpful when you flip the TX100 into laptop mode. Happily, the keyboard doesn't seem to have made the TX100 too bulky, and it felt slim when we held it. That said, check out the photos and make up your own mind.

Samsung is claiming the TX100 will last around 9 hours before the battery conks out, which would be impressive if it holds true. As for storage, you're looking at 32 or 64GB SSD options, which is a healthy dose of drive space, we reckon. The model we examined had 2GB of RAM, and we were told was running on an Intel Atom CPU, though anything could change before the TX100 actually goes on sale.

Weighing just 2.2 pounds, the Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series is easily packed into a briefcase and can be used for making presentations or for recording data on the fly.

For those who prefer physical keyboards over a touch screen for quickly typing up notes or browsing the Web, the 7 Series features a full, 80/81-key keyboard sleekly tucked away under the display. At the user’s convenience, the keyboard slides out completely, creating a laptop-like interface coupled with the touch capabilities on the display.

Hey I am a college student. I would buy it in a second if it had a way to turn off multitouch and therefore use a stylus (in a program like onenote). I need to take notes for classes and you can't really type figures or equations so I need to write. Multitouch is cool but it does not work well for writing. Currently I have a tablet that I use but I am ready to move to a lighter one if I can do the main thing I use the tablet for, taking notes in class. Does anyone know if it will have this functionality?

I've heard that this will also have Android, but this doesn't say anything about that. Anybody know the details on that?
