Samsung Announces Two Windows 8 Tablets- ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3

At the London event, Samsung has just announced two new tablets running Windows 8, the ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3. Both powered by Windows 8, the ATIV Tab 3 is the world’s thinnest tablet while the convertible ATIV Q is able to run Android apps. ATIV Q is a hybrid tablet like the transformer series from ASUS and it is able to run both Windows 8 as well as Android Jelly Bean.

ATIV Q comes sports a 13.3-inch display with a 3,200 x 1,800 (qHD+) resolution¬† which comes to 275ppi. The device can switch between four positions: tablet, typing, stand and writing. Samsung says the panel in ATIV Q is optimized for use in bright sunlight, and viewing angles are wide, at 178 degrees. There’s also an S Pen on board similar to the Galaxy Note series Android tablets.


You can lay the display flat over the keyboard for tablet mode; raise the display upright to type just as you would a laptop; float and adjust the display to a comfortable viewing angle; or flip the display to place in the stand mode to watch movies. The four-in-one design of the ATIV Q easily adjusts to give you every possible option in the one device.


The ATIV Q is also extremely thin and lightweight, at 1.29kg and only 13.9mm.
