So many tablets out there that one must diversify format to keep the game going, so it’s no surprise that we’ve come across the Samsung Gloria slate, a slate with a sliding keyboard. This Windows 7 tablet is more of an oversized smartphone, that looks good enough to compete with the Dell Streak and Nokia N900.

French blog is the one providing the info concerning this Samsung unit and they quote multiple sources for their info… Apparently there’s also a codename involved, Samsung Gloria, a device with a 10 inch touchscreen display and a keyboard that slides out from underneath. Speculations say the product will arrive in March or April 2011 and we keep our fingers crossed for this new and innovative format.
