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.

Pioneering Design

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. The 7 Series is suited for both indoor and outdoor use with 340-nit brightness 10.1-inch display supported by an enhanced HD resolution (1366 x 768). With its slim and light weight design, the 7 Series allows for mobility without compromising functionality in personal or professional settings.

Everyone from students to mobile professionals can enjoy the convenience of Samsung’s Sliding PC 7 Series. The form factor is ideal for personal computing activities like watching movies or social networking, and can quickly adapt the needs of professional users presenting to clients or taking notes at a meeting. The device is also perfect for students, thanks to its handy, portable nature and focus on content. 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.

The six-cell lithium-polymer battery and innovative Eco Light Sensor, which conserves energy and adjusts screen brightness based on available ambient light, allows the 7 Series to last for up to 9 hours.

Innovative Mobile Computing

The ultra-light Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series is engineered with convenience and responsiveness in mind. Available in either 32GB or 64GB models, the 7 Series features expandable storage with the 4-in-1 memory card reader. The solid-state hard drive and Samsung’s Fast Start feature powers the 7 Series in as little as 15 seconds, or restores from Hibernate and Sleep modes in a mere 3 seconds. The SSD also fully supports multi-tasking not only in the Windows® mode, but also in touch mode, so users never have to slow down.

Equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, the Samsung 7 Series provides familiarity and comfort to users while enhancing their overall experience. Users with entertainment in mind will benefit from high-resolution graphics and an HDMI port for sharing content on an HDTV. Additionally, the built-in webcam and audio speaker make the 7 Series ideal for video communication with family, friends and coworkers across the globe.

Optional 3G connectivity takes the 7 Series to new levels, with Internet connectivity anywhere, anytime. Moreover, the built-in accelerometer enables portrait or landscape viewing, making the 7 Series perfect for reading daily news articles, or sharing photos with family and friends.

Application Ecosystem

The Sliding PC 7 Series comes with several pre-loaded applications that are optimized for the touch screen display. This includes Samsung’s applications for music, video, photos, note taking, weather, clock, compass and many more. In addition, Microsoft Bing™ Maps provides powerful tools that help get more out of search, including the intuitive Bing voice search, which enables users to type with their voice to find what they’re looking for. More robust touch applications will be available via the Samsung App Manager and Windows Product Scout.

The Samsung 7 Series acts as a connective hub with other devices to improve the entertainment experience thanks to Samsung’s device-to-device connection solutions. Samsung AllShare™ enables users to control, search, swap and play videos, photos, and music across a full range of DLNA® (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified Samsung devices, ranging from cameras and smart phones to TVs and PCs.

The Samsung 7 Series is scheduled to be available in March 2011, with a starting price of $699 MSRP. All Samsung mobile PC products are available through Samsung resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG or by visiting

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test

Review :

A decade ago, ViewSonic was one of the earliest companies to begin producing tablets – specifically, tablet PCs – in an effort that never seemed to gain traction in a market still focused at the time on desktops and traditional notebooks.

Now, in 2011, ViewSonic is among the first channel-friendly companies to deliver an Android-based tablet to solution providers with the ViewPad 7. And with its follow-up ViewPad 10, ViewSonic has delivered a dual-boot tablet that allows for working in either Windows 7 or Android operating systems.

The ViewSonic® ViewPad® 10 10.1" Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® dual boot tablet supports both Windows® and Android® operating systems. It’s your choice for the best mobile entertainment and productivity tools. ViewPad 10 is packed with rich features including capacitive multi-touch 1024x600 LCD screen, high performance Intel® Pine Trail processor, integrated DDR3 2GB SDRAM and up to 32GB SSD storage capacity, 1.3 megapixel webcam and full connectivity including a mini VGA port and Micro SD slot. With compact and lighter design to carry than a laptop, ViewPad 10 is ideally designed to view Flash-based content and Office programs with Windows®, and for the best mobile entertainment experience with Android.

What about the 2-operating systems-for-1 ViewPad 10? As you might expect, the story there gets a little more complicated. The hardware design of the ViewPad 10 is thinner, rounder and sleeker (more iPad-like) than the ViewPad 7. It weighs less than two pounds, and its screen is – like the ViewPad 7 – bright, clear and crisp.

As a dual-boot device, pressing the “on” key takes you to a boot menu that lets you choose between Windows 7 Professional or Android 2.3. Each OS boots quickly and gets you to the main screen just fine.

A few comparisons between Windows 7 and Android on the same tablet:

  • Windows looks crisper and has the familiar navigational framework – so you don’t need to initially search all over for basic functions and files. Android is fine, but because its GUI is slightly different on each device – and because as an OS it handles different sized-screens differently – you need to tool around the system for a while to determine where different features are located.
  • Android has an easier-to-use touch-screen keyboard than Windows, and one would have to owe that to the fact that Android was written with touch-screen keyboards in mind. Windows’ on-screen touch keyboard is awkward, doesn’t automatically pop up inside browsers as it does with Android, and was never more obviously written for a keyboard and mouse as when its installed on a touch-screen tablet.
  • In the ViewPad 10, signing in to our lab’s WiFi didn’t work the first several times we tried. We found the network, entered the correct password, but it never accessed the wireless network on the first boot. However, when we logged in to Windows 7, we did sign into our wireless network immediately. Only after that, and booting again into Android, did the wireless connection work. Odd, but that’s what happened.
  • Skype worked flawlessly in Windows 7, but on Android provided us with a message that we didn’t have enough processing power to make voice calls. (That’s the first time that ever happened to us using an Atom-based system.)

Still, accessing our Windows applications and files, and downloading and installing Android apps from the App store, all worked fine. This is huge, and a major differentiator that ViewSonic has delivered. The fact that one device will allow for access to apps and files on both platforms could serve as a major bridge to mobility for many.

As with the ViewPad 7, ViewSonic provides the ViewPad 10 with little on-board storage so an SD card is necessary to store data on the device. However, the ViewPad 10 also comes with two USB ports, allowing it to be accessible to thumb drives.

The on-board webcam built into the ViewPad 10 – which we were able to use in Windows with Skype – is clear and crisp. The microphone and on-board speakers work well, too – well enough to conduct a Wi-Fi-based call with no more latency than a PC.

For those looking for just an entry-level Android experience, the ViewPad 7 is small enough to fit neatly into a briefcase or a larger vest pocket, for example, provides access to the Internet via 3G or Wi-Fi, and does the trick.

If someone is tepid about entirely leaving behind the Windows world to try such a nascent platform as Android, but would like to have access to Android apps and that environment over time, the ViewPad 10 is a very good solution.

Review and Price:

This phone will run on Android 2.2 and has been incorporated 3D technology, Smartphone boasts a 3.8-inch display providing a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, Android 2.2, 1GHz Snapdragon GPU, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 8 Megapixel CMOS camera with 720p video recording, microSDHC slot for 32GB memory expansion. The 5.5-inch Mobile version (pictured above) has a delightfully dense 1024 x 600 LCD screen, while its 10.8-inch Home sibling offers a very decent 1366 x 800. There's 802.11b/g Wi-Fi on both, while the littler slate is also enriched with a navigational trackball.

Sharp's emphasis here really seems to be on the cloud-based ecosystem it's creating for these "terminal" devices -- 30,000 newspapers, magazines and books have been lined up for its planned December launch and an "automatic scheduled delivery" facility will help you get at them as soon as the latest issue's ready for consumption. Sadly, we should note that this is specifically tailored to suit the Japanese market, which makes an international release seem somewhat unlikely. For a size comparison between the two tablets and the full press release, jump past the break.

Mobile and Home Galapagos models -- a 5.5-inch slate with 1024 x 600 resolution and a 10.8-incher with 1366 x 800 resolution, respectively -- pricing them at ¥39,800 ($474) and ¥54,800 ($653) for the Japanese market. As usual, direct currency translations are inadvisable, but if you must have a price comparison of some sort, the larger Galapagos model (equipped with an 8GB microSDHC storage card) costs ¥4,000 less than Apple's 32GB WiFi-only iPad. Of course, the big differentiator in Sharp's mind will be the e-bookstore and content ecosystem it's working so hard to create for these Galapagos terminals -- the value of which has yet to be determined.

Sharp Galapagos 10.8 : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test

Sharp has introduced two 3D smartphone, whose use does not require the adoption of classical active polarized glasses, contrary to the 3D TV market today. Named respectively Sharp Galapagos 003SH and Sharp Galapagos 005SH, the Japanese smartphone will be equipped with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Android 2.2 (commonly known as the Froyo) operating system and 3.8-inch screen (9.65 cm) with a resolution of 800×480 pixels, which allows him a three-dimensional visualization.

The Galapagos 005SH model will propose a full QWERTY keyboard and is equipped with an 8 megapixel camera. The Galapagos 003SH version, however, incorporate an optical sensor capable of recording 720p video and photograph to 9.6 megapixel. The 3D glasses-free technology is not yet available on the market, but more and more manufacturers seem to want to adopt in their device (mostly television), as demonstrated by the number of launches that took place last September at IFA 2010 in Berlin.

Nintendo, for example, is already on course for its portable game console 3DS, scheduled for 2011. Fujifilm, again, has launched digital cameras FinePix Real 3D W1 and W3, which allow not only to take pictures in 3D, but also record video in three dimensions. The 3D content is not yet widespread, both in the market for film and video games, but Capcom the company, which specializes in games, is preparing for the 3D versions of some popular titles: Mega Man, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Gold Knights, and also Resident Evil: Degeneration for Android.
