Samsung teases transforming Windows 8 tablet/laptop
posted by Michael H. / Aug 25, 2012, 5:41 PM
just be a laptop. The prevailing theory is that it will be a tablet and keyboard dock combo running full Windows 8. There are some holding out hope that it is a dual-boot Windows 8/Android device, but that seems pretty unlikely, and seems like something Microsoft would most certainly frown upon.The video is pretty cryptic with a lot of clock gears and such, and not a very good view of whatever the product itself is exactly. It is blatantly a laptop, but given that it claims to be the "evolution of technology", it can't
What do you think?

Apple already sued the living diarrhea out of you Samsung. I hope this design isn't too similar to Asus's Transformer line because on that round I will not be backing up Samsung. I will support Asus to the fullest... My humble opinion... Ready to get thumbed down...

I'd still go with Asus because there's no horrid Touchwiz skin. Yuck.

Birds:- Of course you'll get thumb down cause we are backing up a company which has its own class and give consumers what they need. If you look at Apple, they don't have any shame what they have been doing. I am more than sure that the sales for iPhone 5 or whatever you call would be drastically low. Why because Apple is biting that hand which feeds it. And moreover Apple means same design over and over with a high price tag. Well I believe you don't have any technical background after looking at your comment so don't want to say anything else. Sammy I love you and just waiting for my Note 2 :)

Why can't Samsung stick with Android. Having a Windows os. Samsung really afraid to lose. Don't really like Samsung. Broke my Samsung S3 few weeks later due to over used (take too much picture). Really sucks. I think Motorolla, Sony and Nokia are better than Samsung. Going to try either NOkia 808 or the latest pureview tech or Sony Xperia. Samsung in my mind has a bad reputation. Nokia, Sony and Motorolla never let me down. I used them till the battery is totally disintegrated.

Some people r just plain stupid. Samsung doesn't create Galaxy tabs only idiot. I think the last Windows tablet that is available is Samsung Series 7 Slate. And if u did watch Microsoft Windows Phone 8 summit, they were also using Samsung tablet. Get your facts right before u post. Cos that makes u look stupid.

Why can't Samsung stick to Android? - Because they were already one among windows partners. Long before you knew Samsung Galaxy 3. There was Samsung Windows Mobile. Samsung also like to try out different OS like Symbian, Tinzen and Bada. And since Windows Mobile is dead and Windows Phone is born, it make sense for Samsung to use Windows Phones. - Moreover on desktop environment Samsung was already using Windows XP/Vista/7. In short Samsung was already present with different OS before they joined Android. Finally there is Samsung Chrome Book, using Chrome OS made by Google.

The industry is really going to suffer. I'm so embarrased I support Apple by buying their products. I'm sure they r now going to sue any laptop that looks similar to theirs and any all in one pc. Mobile industry better each out. Cos apple now has a leverage after the Samsung trial. I fear what is coming.

huh >? u have been speaking a lot of apple and favoring samsung , nothing wrong in supporting apple "atlest it innovates" if u think apple can sue anyone and any company your wrong , samsung is a bloody copy cat , who will suffer a lot more in future , APPLE could never sue SONY ! sony is the only company in this world whom apple can sue in design or ideas , coz sony also innovates... whoever innovates wont be sued :/ very normal ! SONY INNOVATES SO UT DOESNT GET SUED SAMSUNG COPIES SO IT GETS SUED

Since Sony's iDEA was lifted on "design" by Apple it would be foolish of them to sue Sony. Apple doesn't innovate. They just steal and misuse the flawed Patent system where no one can challenge before Patent is awarded. Ideally all applications for patent of aything should be open for challenge before patent being granted. Then i am sure this rectangle with rounded corners, icons with rounded corners, pinch to zoom would never have been patented. :)
