Samsung ATIV Tab Preview

0. phoneArena posted on 26 Sep 2012, 08:39

We cannot hide it, folks – having the chance to preview the Samsung ATIV Tab is getting us pretty excited. And in case you wonder what makes us feel that way, it is just that the slate is among the first of its kind. Powered by Windows RT, it is meant to be an alternative to Microsoft's lower-end Surface model, which is due to debut later this year. As such, it has been outfitted with some pretty decent hardware, including a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 10.1-inch touchscreen, and a pair of cameras, the main one being of 5 megapixels...

But ATIV doesn't spell VITA, so it's not copying. #Dumb###

Not everyone thinks the desktop interface is boring, some actually prefer it over live tiles.

A good tablet for WP8 users but even after having a decent feel its still made of plastic. I love Samsung and they have some awesome products. Why cant they just make their stuff out of duralumin like in their Series 9 ultrabook. That would totally rock!
But still one of the best Windows Tabs out there...good job Samsung!

Looks good now what it's gonna come down to is who has the best keyboard dock. All the tablets are practically the same spec-wise. The dock is the tiebreaker.

hello folks the interesting thing about windows RT and Windows 8 tablets is their dual nature. if you want to use ether as a Tablet you skip the desktop and use the info tile "Modern UI" interface formerly called "Metro Tiles" People will find them easy to use. When you want to use the Windows RT or Windows 8 Tablet's Desktop you had better break out your good old wireless key board and mouse because it's the best way to use desktop apps on them. Notice that when Microsoft introduced it's "Surface" Tablet computers they had those 2 unique Keyboard cover combo accessories they designed for them. the only draw back to using Office or other desktop programs on a Tablet computer is the size of the screen an 11 or 12 inch tablet would better suit a person who wants to use Old legacy desktop apps for a limited amount time however a 10.1 inch tablet computer can be used to do some production work and that is where the Windows RT shines right out of the box because it has a version of windows office. a lot of folks will buy then because of this. a college student,Business person or average Person will use MS Office with a smile on a Window RT or Windows 8 tablet. they may not have many apps but they can use the internat get and do many things on a Microsoft RT tablet computer
