why? you andro fans always whining about Nokia's phone and thick bezels. Feel the same.
Besides, he just mentioned the fact. The bezel is quite thick. Obviously samsung doesn't have much love for windows products.

But Nokia's thick bezels are on phones, which make them a lot bigger, for example the 4.5" Lumia 928 is basically the same size as the 5" S4 (only a few mm taller, less than a mm narrower and thicker).
This ATIV Tab 3 is a tablet, which requires some bezel to hold more comfortablely. And its a very similar size to other 10.1" tablets.
Through there are benefits of having thicker bezels on a phone, such as more durable, less accidental touches and easier to make cases with raise edges (for better screen protection).

Samsung is quite good with smartphones, but when it comes to tablets they always dissapoint me
Clover Trail? LPDDR2 RAM? We had better Windows 8 tablets than that last year already.

One note. The Lenovo competitor is the ThinkPad Tablet 2 (the Tablet is their Android device). As to why you'ld want one, it runs full Windows - real Office, real Firefox, real Acrobat Pro, real Evernote. With a pen you can use handwriting to input text and use ink annotation in Office, Acrobat, and Evernote (as well as other programs that support it). I'm writing this on my ThinkPad Tablet 2 which I love. My only concern with the Samsung would be the S-Pen versus the TPT2 Wacom pen.
