World’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet, the Samsung ATIV Tab 3, debuts in London


In case the steady stream of news didn’t tip you off, Samsung’s releasing tons of new devices today. One of the most interesting is the Samsung ATIV Tab 3, which the company claims is the world’s thinnest tablet at just 0.32 inches thick. This 10-inch tablet weighs a mere 1.21 pounds, and runs the full version of Windows 8.

This ultra portable tablet features a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 resolution display, which isn’t as high resolution as the also just-released ATIV Q, but it’s enough for everyday applications. Powering the ATIV Tab 3 is an Intel Atom Z2760 processor partnered with 2GB of RAM and a 64GB flash memory hard drive. It’s rated for up to 10 hours of battery life, so it’ll keep going all day. There’s also a 720p HD camera onboard and ports for micro USB, micro HDMI, and a micro SD card. 

Along with the full version of Windows 8, ATIV Tab 3 comes with Office Home & Student 2013 preinstalled. It also includes Samsung’s SideSync technology which allows users with a Samsung smartphone to respond to texts right from their computer, and easily edit photos and back up files right from their computer. 

Lastly, the AVTI Tab 3 is compatible with Samsung’s improved S Pen that even works with Microsoft Office.

Pricing and availability hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
