Samsung Ativ Tab, a 10.1-inch Windows RT-based Tablet


Samsung has launched the ATIV line at the recently held IFA 2012 convention in Berlin.  Ativ is the brand Samsung chose for its Windows-powered devices.  So if Galaxy is to Android, Ativ is to Windows devices.  I already featured the Samsung Ativ S Windows Phone 8 handset in a previous post and we should be seeing more Ativ devices from Samsung in the future.

The Samsung Ativ Tab is a Windows RT-powered tablet.  Windows RT is a lighter version of Windows 8 Pro and it’s intended for tablets.  The Ativ Tab’s display measures at 10.1 inches with 1366 x 768 resolution, so this goes against Apple’s iPad and other 10.1-inch tablets out there.  It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM with internal storage of either 32GB or 64GB.  The Ativ Tab also features a 8,200mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and NFC.  The Samsung Ativ Tab will also pack a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front camera.

  1. When you look at it with the keyboard dock, it exactly looks like the asus transformer prime or the asus vivotab. I wish samsung would get sued by asus.

  2. Affordability is must. Because Apple is going to release it’s iPad Mini tablet in the market, it’s rivals should take care with the price factor. The iPad Mini would likely to come with a budget friendly price.

    Though, Sony’s this tablet will not target iPad Mini because both have different sizes.

    • Tama nga siguro we have seen the success of Kindle Fire and the recently released Nexus 7 Tablet. If you want to compete head to head to Apple then you need to cut your profit a by @ least 50% haha
