It’s been a while since a tablet maker tried to launch a sliding keyboard slate, usually opting for an accessory of this sort. Now a design from Netherlands brings back that niche segment through the Samsung Galaxy Tab Slide.

Samsung-slider-tablet concept

This is a thin Windows 8 slate that’s apparently based on some rumors that have appeared on the web lately. This concept tablet integrates a full keyboard at the bottom, that can be ejected and a special kickstand that props up the device. Inside we find 4 GB of RAM, a 6000 mAh battery and a quad core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm processor.

32 GB of storage, HDMI an USB ports and an 8 megapixel cam at the back round up the specs. We’ve got a 2.1 MP front camera, a USB 3.0 charging port and all of that is crammed into a Samsung tablet that measures 10 mm in thickness and weighs 683 grams. This feels like something that Lenovo would do, since we’ve seen them experimenting lately.

    This is not Windows 8, but RT version, unfortunately 🙁 Another DOA product.
