Acer announces Tablet PC with sliding hinge

In a press conference in Greece Acer announced the new TravelMate C200 Tablet PC which uses a sliding mechanism to convert from notebook configuration to slate.  The C200 eschews the rotating screen that is normally used in convertible Tablet PCs and uses an innovative sliding pop-up hinge that Acer claims is a more sturdy design.

The C200 will sport a Sonoma Intel processor, fingerprint reader, 12.1 inch screen and integrated pointing stick.  Acer stated the C200 should be available in the US by the end of the year.

Acer also stated they might consider selling PDAs in the US in the future.
