TAIPEI: Samsung has displayed its Series 5 Hybrid tablet-notebook PC hybrid for the first time during the Computex conference in Taiwan.
The device is similar to the Asus Transformer series as the tablet slots into a keyboard dock and will run the full version of Windows 8 when made available.
The most remarkable feature is that the tablet and dock are connected magnetically instead of by a latch mechanism.
Samsung remained tight-lipped about specifications of the device, although it is widely reported that the screen size is set to be 11.6in.
Unfortunately, we couldn't get our measuring tapes anywhere near the device as it was encased and we were told it wouldn't be coming out of its box until September time.
What we do know is that it will run for about 10 hours between charges, has both a 2MP and 8MP camera and will support stylus input as it comes bundled with the S-Pen and S-Memo software that we've seen on the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Samsung will be one of many manufacturers running the Windows 8 platform when it is made available later this year with Dell, Acer and Asus all promising devices on the Metro Interface.
