    Looks very slick I wonder if they'll make models with differing keyboard colours?

    Any word on pen or stylus input options? It's been a wonderful CES for tablets so far: it looks like this year might *actually* be the year of the tablet

    Re: News - Samsung creates a tablet with a QWERTY slider, calls it the PC 7 Series

    Finally...

    I've been touting a design like this for ages! I hate the "swivel" on current tablet designs, because they introduce a SPOF.

    I feel/felt that my HP TX2 was a step backwards from the HP TC1100 in terms of engineering robustness.

    For a long time I've been asking (out loud and silently) why a tablet PC couldn't have a keyboard that tucks away. Much like the MDA Vario 3, which was itself an improvement on the XDA Exec, which - you guessed it - swivelled.

    Oh just one other thing, this is netbook-based rather than laptop-based.

    I would love to see i5/i7 processors in this "form factor" rather than the incumbent Atom.
