Samsung is back in action with two new slate tablets — the Samsung Series 5 and Series 7. Both of them are powered by Intel processors and come loaded with Windows 8 operating system. Featuring an 11.6-inch ten-point touchscreen display, the new devices can easily transform from a traditional notebook to a Slate device with just the click of a button. Talking about design, the tablets features physical QWERTY keyboard dock which attaches with a mechanical hinge so that you can pick up the device with one hand without fear of the pieces separating.
Both the Series 5 and Series 7 Slate PCs have a Samsung S Pen conveniently embedded in a slot on the device. With 1,024 levels of sensitivity, the S Pen is designed for natural and intuitive content creation, and offers features including handwriting to text conversion and varying thickness when drawing or writing, depending on the pressure applied.
Samsung Series 7 is powered by Intel Core i5-3317U processor and features 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 11.6-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, LAN, WiFi, and Bluetooth.
On the other hand the Samsung Series 5 tablet is powered by Intel Atom Z2760 processor and features 2GB RAM, 64GB SSD, and 11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution. Rest of the features remain same.
Samsung Series 7 is priced at $1199 while the Series 5 cost $749 with keyboard dock and $649 without one.
Both of them will be available beginning October 26, 2012.
