Samsung makes Ativ Tab 3 official – slimmest Windows 8 tablet in the world

The Microsoft Surface may have the features you want, but you may find it too thick. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (see more on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 here) may be slim, but you may not be too interested in a tablet running Android. If this is your dilemma, Samsung has the solution. It has just made the Ativ Tab 3 official, which is the slimmest Windows 8 tablet in the world (see related news here).ATIV Tab 3 (1)

Samsung said (see full press release here), “A tablet with the power of a PC, the ATIV Tab 3 makes personal computing easier than ever. As the world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet – as thin as many popular smartphones – it shares a similar design and premium look and feel of the Samsung Galaxy series. It is perfect for creativity and productivity as it features Samsung’s S Pen functionality, high level pen display and S Pen compatibility with MS Office.

“Incredibly thin and lightweight at only 8.2 millimetres thick and 550g in weight, the ATIV Tab 3 is the ideal device to take on the daily commute to work. With up to ten hours of battery life, it is also a great device for taking on most long distance flights.

“The ATIV Tab 3 runs Windows 8, has the ability to run all Windows apps and programmes and comes preloaded with Office Home & Student.

“SideSync is available with both the ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, enabling you to easily switch from working on a PC to an Android-based Samsung smartphone. The PC keyboard can be used to respond to a text on a mobile phone, view maps on a larger screen, display photos and videos on both devices to make editing files even easier, or use an ATIV PC to back up and charge mobile devices.”

We’ll be seeing the Samsung Ativ Tab 3 “later this year.”
