Samsung announced a wide range of new products in London today, products which include all-in-one systems, high-performance cameras and some interesting tablets but also hybrids. Amongst them we could find the ATIV Tab 3, a slim Windows 8 (the desktop version) tablet which pretty much resembles the Galaxy Tab 3.

Besides a thin and nice looking body, the ATIV Tab 3 aims to conquer a sector of the market which loves to travel, boosting a 10.1-inch display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution. The actual weight of the tablet is 550 grams and all those components are gathered in a body with an 8.2 millimeters thickness.

Said to have the computational power of a regular desktop computer, the Samsung ATIV 3 crams a Z2760 Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. On the camera side, the slate brings a 720p HD rear camera.


The battery is big enough to accommodate up to 8.5 hours of use which is great considering the fact that you can use it as a regular desktop computer. As a bonus, Samsung included Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student in each and every unit, for free. While this comes as a great addition, if the price of Microsoft’s suite will also be included in the tablet cost, it will not be seen as such.

Another interesting feature is the addition of an S-Pen, which can be successfully used by anyone who wishes to draw on-the-go. I guess this feature was also borrowed from the Galaxy family, alongside S Note software.
