Samsung officially announces ATIV Tab 3, the new Windows 8 tablet


Samsung has officially announced the new Samsung ATIV Tab 3 at the Samsung Premiere event, which took place on 20th of June. Samsung ATIV Tab 3 is a slim and light tablet from the company that runs Windows 8 operating system.

Samsung ATIV Tab 3 has a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels and a pixel density of 155 ppi. The display present on the Samsung ATIV Tab 3 is not as crisp and clear as the latest Apple iPad or the Google Nexus 10, but the device does have a decent resolution.

The ATIV Tab 3 has an Intel Atom chipset. The device is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 chip that is also know as Clover Trail, and has 2GB of RAM. As a tablet, it has massive internal storage space of 64GB, but as of now, we are not quite sure if it has a microSD card support.

The tablet also has a primary and secondary camera, which can be used for various purposes. And one of the most important features provided by Samsung is the support for 3G and 4G LTE connectivity. Like most of the other Samsung devices, even the ATIV Tab 3 features the Samsung S Pen that can be used with the new and improved S Note 2.0 app that comes along with it.

The Ativ Tab 3 definitely qualifies to be a slim and lightweight device. It has a thickness of 8.2mm and weighs 550 grams. And as far as the design is concerned, you will easily be able to make out that the Samsung ATIV Tab 3 has been inspired by the typical Samsung design you see in each product.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 3 will be available with and without a keyboard, so you can choose the model that best suits you. The keyboard free version will cost you $599 whereas the keyboard version will cost you $699. The keyboard will be attached as a back cover and you have to slide the cover whenever you want to use it.
