SAMSUNG has put its Series 5 Hybrid tablet-come-notebook PC on display, unveiling it for the first time at the Computex conference in Taipei.
In vein of the Asus Transformer series, the Korean firm's new tablet slots into a keyboard dock and will run the full version of Windows 8 X86.
The most remarkable feature is that the tablet and dock are connected magnetically instead of your average, and usually clumsy latch mechanism.
Samsung are remaining very tight lipped about any specifications of the device, even after a good poke and prod, the firm wouldn't let slip any specs whatsoever, not even the screen size. However, it is widely reported that the screen size is infact rumoured to be 11.6in.
Unfortunately, we couldn't even 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 a 2 and an 8 megapixel camera and will support pen input - being bundled with the S-Pen and S-Memo software that we've seen on the Galaxy Note 10.1.
One thing we wonder is how well it will work with Windows 8 as opposed to the Android operating system. µ
