Samsung's new 7-series netbook
ditches the standard swiveling convertible tablet PC format for an ingenious sliding mechanism, which turns the netbook into a 10-inch tablet. The Atom-powered 7-series does run Windows 7, which frankly has never been successful as a tablet OS (not even in the coolest hardware
) but Samsung seems to have put a substantial touch-based skin over it to make the tablet experience more seamless. Samsung's got lots of experience with that--its TouchWiz Android skin is one of the most popular in the world--so we're hoping this great form factor won't go to waste.
