Samsung Galaxy Tab Slide with keyboard ejection envisioned


Some readers may have heard recent whisperings about the possibility of a Samsung tablet that would incorporate a sliding keyboard. Based on these rumors one designer has come up with the Samsung Galaxy Tab Slide with keyboard ejection envisioned.

We should point out from the off that this is a concept render, but it can be interesting to look at these occasionally to get an idea of what future products could offer. This is quite an appealing design that we think plenty of people would like to see on a real Galaxy Tab Slide if Samsung eventually releases the rumored sliding tablet.

Specifications of this Galaxy Tab Slide include a 2.3GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 6000 mAh battery, and HDMI and USB connection. The choice of operating system is Windows 8.

This concept tablet measures 10mm thick and weighs in at 683g. What’s really interesting here is a look at how the sliding keyboard could work. The full keyboard can be ejected from the bottom and then the tablet can stand atop and be used as a laptop.

Another nice aspect of this design is what looks to be an edge-to-edge display. It would be interesting to hear what readers think of this design so do let us have your comments. Are you enticed by the idea of a Samsung tablet with sliding keyboard? Would you like it to look like this Samsung Galaxy Tab Slide concept?

    I like having a little bezel around instead of the edge to edge – when using as a tablet, I need something to hang onto without triggering something on the screen. I love the concept of some sort of keyboard with the tablet – I currently have a tablet and a separate keyboard – they connect via blue tooth and have two different chargers… not very convenient and I find I use my netbook a lot more than my tablet.

    I think it is a great idea and i’m already eager to try it out. I was disappointed it is only an idea and I can’t put my hands on it. I worried that it will weight considerably more and that is crucial in a tablet. But there is alway an option to leave the keyboard out. Another concern is the balance of the tablet. Meaning if you take out the mass of the keyboard the tablet center of gravity shifts. Will it be comfotable holding it? It will be more comfortable holding it portrait because of the lowrr moment i’m sure.
    I agree with the reviewer comment about the bezel – it is a must and it should be 2cm wide. The space can be used for high quality front speakers.
    Note that the keyboard should be super comfortable or else there is no worth while benefit over the virtual keyboard I’m using now.
