Samsung is resurrecting the ghost of the Q1 and planning to jump into the now-hot slate PC market in the second half of 2010. According to Emmanuele Silanesu, National Product and Marketing Manager for Samsung Australia’s IT division, Samsung’s slate device will contain a faster, more robust processor than the iPad and will offer more connectivity options through a diversity of I/O ports. Consumer friendly in price, the Samsung slate will be a primary device designed to replace a netbook or a notebook in your personal arsenal of mobile computers. As Silanesu explained, this is a device that “you could take to university and do a PowerPoint presentation on it, for example, or a device that could be taken home or to the office and docked.” From Silanesu’s brief revelation, we can expect the Samsung slate to feature an Intel Atom processor, contain ports for multiple video sources, support a multitude of peripherals including a docking station, sport a sub-$500 price tag, and mostly likely run some flavor of Windows. Any interest in an Intel Atom-powered slate running Windows or have we already been there, done that as shown above?
