The Samsung TX 100 slider laptop will be launched on 3 UK during the summer according to that leaked document obtained by Engadget and published earlier this morning
The leak confirms the details of the Slider device, a Series 7 device, that was released earlier this year during CES in Las Vegas but has since then been missing in action.
The model presented by the 3 UK document mentions a 10.1-inch LED touch screen display with a 1366x768 pixels resolution, an Oak Trail Intel Atom processor, 2GB RAM, a 64GB SSD drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G connectivity, integrated webcam, up to nine hours battery life, a proper keyboard and a weight of 1Kg.
It is however the sliding mechanism that separates the tablet from many of its rivals on the market. The tablet is expected to cost around £599 at launch, a price which we suspect will be subsidised by 3 UK.
That said, The Dell Inspiron Duo netbook which is also a transformable touchscreen model, costs only £420 in comparison and comes with a Broadcom Crystal HD media accelerator which guarantees smooth video playback, especially when dealing with flash content.
We've curious to find out whether Samsung will be planning to launch such a tablet but either with an ARM subsystem (think the Samsung Galaxy Tab S II with a keyboard) or with AMD's more efficient Zacate platform.
