At TechEd 2011 New Zealand Jeff Johnson and Patrick Hevesi showed off some new Windows “Slate” style device in the WCL101 Come and see the latest and greatest in Windows Devices session.

Below is a number of photos of the devices that were shown off including a un-named Windows Slate device…

Update: The mystery of what the device is seems to have been solved… It looks very much like a Samsung Series 7 Dual Core Slate . While the device is only dual core it does have hyper-threading and so it would show having 4 CPU’s in task manager.

Update 2: I have found a post on a Microsoft web site of a Samsung Series 7 Slate that looks exactly the same as the Quad Core Slate form TechEd NZ

What is very interesting is that the device looks like a thin Quad Core Windows Slate which will be a vast improvement over current thicker slower tablets…

Note: Only first two photos are of the said Quad Core slate…
