Samsung ATIV Tab for pre-order on Amazon UK, much too expensive

image

We have just seen the Acer Iconia W510 offering great value at 499  Euro ($648 or £403) for a x86 tablet with dock.

Now we see the opposite side of the spectrum, with Amazon UK offering pre-orders for the Samsung ATIV TAB 10.1 inch tablet for £549.99 (682 Euro, $884). The ARM tablet has a 1.5 ghz dual-core processor and 2 GB RAM and of course runs Windows RT.  The package does not appear to include anything extra such as a dock or keyboard, making the price appear to be pretty poor value.

Given that we are having x86 tablets selling for cheaper than ARM tablets, do our readers think those tablets have any future? Let us know below.

Thanks Erno for the tip.
