SHOCK: Samsung is prepping a 'slate' PC

Are you sitting down? Don’t read this standing up. You need to be sitting down. It’s a real shocker. You’re not going to believe it. Ready? Samsung is going to release a so-called ‘slate’ PC. That means it’s just basically a screen! Can you imagine? How novel!

A random national product and marketing manager for Samsung Australia’s IT division told APC that Samsung was planning to release a slate in the second half of the year. Not much is known about the capabilities, specs, pricing, or target market right now. So yeah, we don’t know jack besides that Samsung, along with every other hardware company, is working on a tablet computer for a 2010 release. At least that’s what a mid-level Samsung manager says.
