Thursday marked the entry of two new kids on the block; Samsung ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, which the Korean manufacturer rolled out as world’s thinnest Windows 8 devices. Focusing on tablet’s mobility, adaptability and versatility, Samsung placed both the tabs as convertible devices.
Quite similar to the Galaxy Tab, the ATIV Tab 3 comes with the S-Pen that goes well with the ATIV’s Windows products including MS Office. However, the only difference is Windows 8 operating system instead of Android.
With a 10.1-inch display, the ATIV Tab 3 sports a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. Powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 processor, it holds 2GB of RAM and a 64GB hard drive. Along with ports for micro USB 2.0 and micro HDMI, the ATIV Tab 3 has a slot for Micro SD cards.
Coming to the next one, Samsung also uncovered the ATIV Q tablet, featuring a full, adjustable keyboard with four modes. With this tab, users get an option to place the display on top to conceal the keyboard completely. However, to get the feel of a laptop, the device can also be raised in a vertical position. One exciting feature of this tab is that it can dual-boot Windows 8 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The 13.3-inch ATIV Q comes with a resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels. The tablet is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor. It boasts 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD hard drive.
