Samsung shows new Ativ Q, Ativ Tab 3 Windows 8 devices
At its recently-concluded product release event, Samsung unveiled a pair of portable devices -- the dual-booting convertible Ativ Q, and the Ativ Tab 3. The Ativ Q is a 13.3-inch device with a 3200x1800 screen, capable of booting into Windows 8 or Android 4.2.2. The Ativ Tab 3 is also a full Windows 8 device in a 10.1-inch, 1366x768 resolution form factor. Notably, the Ativ Tab 3 device comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office 2013.<br />
<br />
The Ativ Q is driven by an unspecified Intel Core i5 Haswell processor, with claims that the device will run for up to 9 hours between battery charges -- <a href=",2817,2420468,00.asp" rel='nofollow'>notably less</a> than the latest 13-inch MacBook Air model's touted battery life. Intel HD 4400 graphics drive the display of the tablet, which has 4GB of DDR3L memory, and storage is provided by a 128GB SSD. Ports on the device are a single USB 3.0 port, a single USB 2.0 port, HDMI, a HP/microphone combo port, and a MicroSD slot. As a transformable, the Ativ Q can be laid flat for tablet mode, can be raised upright like a laptop. The device weighs 2.84 lbs (1.29kg) and is 13.9mm thick.<br />

The Ativ Tab 3 is a 10.1-inch device in a more conventional tablet form factor. A Intel Atom Z2760 powers the device with 2GB of LPDDR2 memory. Storage is provisioned with a 64GB eMMC. Battery life is claimed at up to 10 hours. The device is 8.2mm thick, and is 1.21 lbs (550g) in weight.<br />

Pricing and availability have not been announced for either device.
