Samsung ATIV Q: The Best Of Two Worlds (Hands-On Video)

Having difficulty in choosing between tablet operating systems? Maybe the newly announced Samsung ATIV Q is the slate for you. The new device is coming with both Android and true Windows 8 (not RT), and we are not talking about dual booting.

Samsung says that their ATIV Q is “addressing consumers’ desire to access Android apps on a Windows-based PC, the ATIV Q allows users to experience both Windows 8 and Android (Jelly Bean 4.2.2) on the same device. Users will not only get access to Android apps via Google Play but also be able to transfer files, to share folders and files from Windows 8 to Android, truly marrying the mobile and PC experiences.”

The device will allow you to launch Android from Windows 8, pin Android apps to the Windows 8 start screen, use the same screen to launch Android and Windows 8 apps, and of course access both the Play Store and Microsoft Store.

The specs of the device include an Intel Core i5 Haswell processor with HD 4400 graphics, 4GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a 13.3-inch display, which “offers 2.8 times higher pixel density (275ppi) than full HD displays”, according to Samsung. The whole thing weighs 1.29kg and measures in at 13.9mm.

As you will see in the video below, there’s also an S-Pen and it has two extra modes other than the laptop and tablet modes, the company is saying. It will also allow you to “float and adjust the display to a comfortable viewing angle or flip the display to place in the stand mode to watch movies with ease”. Most users probably won’t be using the last two modes that often.

Check out the hands-on video, courtesy of Pocketnow, to see the device in action.
