Tech giant Samsung is working on a slate tablet computer, according to a new report.

APC reports that the unnamed device is aiming to be a primary, not complementary, computing device and can dock to become a desktop computer, according to anonymous Samsung executives.

The slate tablet PC is due in the second half of 2010.

The device will have a full-power (read: Intel Atom or Moorestown, rather than ARM) processor and a wealth of connectivity options, according to the report, and will have "more potential" than Apple's iPad.

It will be aimed at the consumer market, but can be used for PowerPoint presentations at the office or university.
