Samsung Slate: Meet the second Windows 7 Phone Series handset

By Alan Ng - Mar 16, 2010

Microsoft has just announced and unveiled the Samsung Slate – the second handset that will run on their new Windows Phone 7 Series operating system.

As reported from Pocket-Lint, the Samsung Slate follows the LG Panther into the world of Windows Phone 7, but it is understood that Samsung’s handset will ditch the QWERTY keyboard in favor of a virtual one, besides other juicy specs.

An official spec sheet has yet to be released by Microsoft, but we do know the Samsung Slate will feature a capacitive touchscreen, 3 hardware buttons, a 5 megapixel camera with flash (at least), accelerometer, agps, DirectX 9 accelerated GPU, 256MB RAM and either a ARMv7 Cortex or Scorpion CPU.

It is understood that the primary function of the Samsung Slate will be its excellent camera, so maybe the 5 megapixel spec mentioned above, may even turn out to be higher than that – we’ll keep you updated.

Let us know your thoughts on the phone.
