Samsung just gave a brief glimpse of its new Windows 8 tablet, the Samsung Series 5 Hybrid. Similar to the Acer W510 or the ASUS Transformer Prime, the tablet section of the Series 5 Hybrid connects to the keyboard at the hinge, only here it uses a magnetic connector, rather than a mechanical latch. In our brief hands-on time with it at Samsung’s Seoul headquarters, the magnetic latch felt very secure, and the device was very sturdy overall.
Samsung will offer two versions of the tablet, one with a 2-watt Intel CPU designed for smartphones, and one with an Intel ULV processor. While both versions will have an 11.6-inch display, only the latter configuration will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080.
