Samsung's Sliding PC 7 tablet, announced back at CES 2011 in January, has gone up for pre-order at Amazon, priced at at $649.  The Windows 7 based TX100 - listed as the "Series 7 XE700Z0A-A01US Tablet PC" - has a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 capacitive touchscreen and, in this particular SKU, a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor paired with 2GB of DDR2 memory and a 32GB SSD.

Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, an HDMI port, USB 2.0 and an SD card slot. Samsung has promised 3G-enabled versions, though it's unclear what sort of premium they will command. The sliding slate also packs twin cameras, a 1.3-megapixel webcam up front for video calls, and a 3-megapixel camera on the back for photographs and video.

The whole thing weighs in at 2.2lbs and measures 10.65 x 7.1 x 0.84 inches, and has an MRSP of $699. No word on when it's expected to ship, though Samsung had previously said sometime during Q2 2011 which could take us anywhere up to the end of June. Live photos in our hands-on with the tablet.
