Samsung Ativ Q officially unveiled – powered by both Windows and Android

Longing for a tablet that has the capabilities of both the Microsoft Surface and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (see more on the Samsung Galaxy tab 3 here)? Well, what you’re looking for has just been officially unveiled. The Korean tech giant has just lifted the lid on the Ativ Q, a tablet that is powered by both Windows and Android (see related news here).ATIV Q (3)

Samsung said (see press release here), “The ATIV Q is a convertible device with the ability to change modes and has both Windows and Android capabilities. Built with today’s busy lifestyles in mind, it works as a notebook or tablet and gives you more flexibility and convenience than ever before.

“Addressing a common desire among PC users to be able to access Android apps on a Windows-based PC, the ATIV Q allows you to now experience both Windows 8 and Android (Jellybean 4.2.2) on the same device. Not only will you get access to Android apps via Google Play, but you will also be able to transfer files or share folders and files from Windows 8 to Android.

“The ATIV Q sports a hinge design that allows you to transform it into four functional modes. You can lay the display flat over the keyboard for tablet mode; raise the display upright to type just as you would a laptop; float and adjust the display to a comfortable viewing angle; or flip the display to place in the stand mode to watch movies. The four-in-one design of the ATIV Q easily adjusts to give you every possible option in the one device. The ATIV Q is also extremely thin and lightweight, at 1.29kg and only 13.9mm, making it very portable.

“Finally, the ATIV Q introduces the world’s highest resolution, QHD+ (3200×1800) display. Its13.3-inch touch screen offers 2.8 times higher pixel density (275ppi) than full HD displays, and the device is also designed to give you an optimised viewing experience regardless of where you are or the brightness of the environment you are in.”

The Samsung Ativ Q will be arriving in the UK “later this year.”
