Samsung ATIV Tab 3 hands on

Samsung ATIV Tab 3 hands on

Product image

Well, we’re no closer to finding out whether or not this is indeed the world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet, but we can confirm that the ATIV Tab 3 is stunningly thin. In fact, it’s as svelte as its iOS and Android competitors, hitting an astounding 8.22mm. Samsung’s following the design lines of its Galaxy range — aside from the Windows button beneath the screen, obviously. At a distance you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the ATIV Tab 3 and recent Galaxy Tabs. We like the unified approach here — it should make it much easier to identify a Samsung device at first glance. Of course, that uniformity also means that the devices all feel similar too. That is to say, cheap and plasticky.

With an Intel Atom processor inside along with 2GB of RAM, It feels light and responsive. Apps launched pretty quickly, but we weren’t able to really punish the CPU and unreliable WiFi made testing the browser impossible. The 1,366 x 768, 10.1-inch screen pairs with an S-Pen that’s housed in the bottom right corner, which isn’t quite as useful as it is on the Note range… at least not yet. The don’t-call-it-a-stylus comes with dedicated software, including improved handwriting-to-text, Easy Clipping and Air View all now working within Windows 8, not to mention S Note. The ATIV Tab 3 will be shipping in early August for $699, with a keyboard cover included. For now, we’ve got more impressions after the break.
