This upcoming IFA expo in Berlin will likely be filled to the brim with tablets, but this specific model form Samsung will be using an actual Core ix CPU with a Windows 7 OS.

Called the Slate PC Series 7, this 11.6-inch tablet will house an Intel Core i5 CPU with an impressive 4GB RAM, up to 64GB SSD, front and rear cameras, USB 2.0, microSD and HDMI connections. Core i3 and Pentium versions will be available as well, according to Pocket-lint. Additionally, the slate will support Wi-Fi with WiMAX and HSPA+ connectivity if a nearby hotspot is not available. The final unit is expected to last 7 hours on a single charge with a weight and thickness of 0.86kg (1.9 pounds) and 12.7mm (0.5 inches), respectively.

The tablet will also come with its own docking station, likely to be sold separately. The dock adds full-sized USB and HDMI ports with Gigabit Ethernet.

How this Windows tablet will perform in sales when released should be exciting, especially if comparing to Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab series and the impending launch of Windows 8. Prices and release dates have yet to be announced.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
