Samsung Ativ Tab is announced with dual-core processor, 10-inch screen, and Windows RT
Samsung had a plethora of Windows-based devices to present to us today, and among them was the Ativ Tab, powered by Windows RT operating system. The tablet is made for people who want a mobile device that is ultra portable, but don't want that to result in limited productivity capabilities. Speaking of portability, the Samsung Ativ Tab is only 8.9 millimeters thin and weighs 570 grams, which is quite good for a 10.1-inch tablet. And since the slate has Office Home and Student 2013 RT pre-installed, featuring Microsoft's Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, users should have no troubles getting their work done even when on the go.
Interested in its hardware specs? Well, here's the more interesting stuff: on the front of the Samsung Ativ Tab glows an LCD display with resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels. Humming inside it is a 1.5GHz dual-core processor accompanied by 2GB of RAM. There is a pair of cameras too, with the main one being of 5 megapixels, and the one in the front is a more basic 1.9-megapixel shooter meant for video conversations. Both 32 and 64GB models will be available, and storage can be expanded further by using a microSD card. Last but not least, the tablet is equipped with a 8,200mAh battery.
Unfortunately, we don't exactly know when the Samsung Ativ Tab will go on sale. Its price is also a mystery, but something tells us that it will be close to what Microsoft's Windows RT Surface tablet will retail for.
