Low and behold, today was composed of a mass unveiling of new technology in Berlin, and despite being an ocean away in the United States, the noise still resonates of Windows RT-based Microsoft Surface competitors: for the first time, Microsoft will have to fight for market share against its own, long-term PC partners.
The Samsung ATIV Tab features a 10.1-inch 1366×768 display, is 8.9mm thick, and weighs 20 ounces. Processing power is decent, with 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 2 Gigabytes of RAM, and either 32 or 64 gigs of storage. Also included is the industry-standard Bluetooth 4.0 with NFC and GPS chips, and finally, USB 2.0 and mini-HDMI ports. 5MP back-facing and 1.9MP front-facing cameras are also included.
No notes are available from Samsung on pricing and availability, but expect for it to release sometimes when Windows 8 does in October.
