The South Korean electronics giant touts its new tablet with slots for a keyboard dock similar to that of the Asus Transformer series of tablet-notebook hybrids, and it will run on the full version of Microsoft's Windows 8 x86 based architecture devices out of the box.
The most noteworthy hardware specification of both the tablet and dock are its magnetic connection, rather than the standard – and usually clunky – latch mechanism.
Samsung remains tight-lipped on other details of the Series 5 Hybrid PC.
Even after a decent amount of poking and prodding, the company stood firm on not letting slip any specifications, including the size of its screen.
At the event, Samsung so conveniently encased the device and only said it would not hit the market until September this year.
The Series 5 Hybrid PC will take around 10 hours after a full charge before the battery runs empty.
It also has 8- and 2-megapixel cameras and support pen input like that of the Samsung Galaxy Note with the help of the company’s S-Pen and S-Memo software.
However, we still need to see if this one will work well on the upcoming full version of Microsoft’s Windows 8 instead of Google’s Android Operating System (OS).
