Samsung Announces ATIV Tab 3, World’s Thinnest Windows 8 Tablet

Samsung Ativ Tab 3

Samsung today announced ATIV Tab 3, the world’s thinnest Windows tablet.

A tablet with the power of a PC, the ATIV Tab 3 makes personal computing more mobile than ever. The tablet is the world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet – as thin as popular smartphones – and shares the premium design of the GALAXY series. It is also ideal for both creativity and productivity with improved S Pen functionality, including high level pen display and S Pen compatibility with MS Office.

Ultimate Mobility: The ATIV Tab 3 is the perfect device for on-the-go users. The frame is incredibly thin and light at only 8.2 millimeters thick and 550g in weight, making it a perfect companion device for travel as well as transporting between work and home. The ATIV Tab 3 also features up to 10 hours of battery life, eliminating the need to carry a charger for most long-distance flights.

Full Windows Experience for Work and Play: The ATIV Tab 3 runs Windows 8 with the ability to run Windows apps and programs, as well as coming preloaded with Office™ Home & Student for the best experience whether at home, at work or on go.

Both the ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3 also enable superior productivity with S Pen functionality, enabling users to easily make written updates to creative and work.

SideSync is available on the ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, enabling users to switch from working on their PC to an Android-based Samsung smartphone with simplicity and ease. With SideSync, the user’s PC and mobile device become one. Simply use the PC keyboard 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. With SideSync, users enjoy more productivity with fewer interruptions to work and everyday life.

ATIV Tab 3 will be shipping in early August for $699, with a keyboard cover included.

    Better wait for Intel´s Bay Trail processors

    • Bugbog

      Just like we waited for Haswell? For now I prefer RT (married with a T4 or SNpD800!)

    • DigTheNoise

      I’m gonna wait for Intel’s Gorilla Banana processor coming out in 2047.

    Nice promo. Nice design, nice size…
    Unfortunatly you’l get an outdated (previous generation) Atom Z2760 SOC and a Windows RT-like screenresolution of 1366×768 probably because the SOC can’t handle a high resolution. Bummer. 😉

      A little crazy to get one right now at that price with Haswell devices priced around the same price bracket and Baytrail devices hitting this fall.
