Samsung ATIV Tab is a 10.1-inch Windows RT-powered tablet that looks pretty generic, with a single physical button with the Windows logo on it. The device runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front shooter. Designwise, the ATIV Tab is a pretty slick device, measuring just 8.9mm thick and with a weight of 570g.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
