Another reveal from the AT&T event in New York.
The Ativ Smart PC is another tablet that runs Windows RT.
The Ativ Smart PC uses Intel’s next-generation Atom CPUs — code-named Clover Trail — and packs 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage space (with a microSD slot for additional expansion), dual webcams (2-megapixel front, 8-megapixel rear), and a 1,366×768-resolution display.
This device is the middle version of Samsung’s tablet line. The premium device is the Ativ Smart PC Pro and the cheapest is the Ativ Tab.
The Tab will run the stripped-down Windows RT operating system, while both of the “Smart PC” versions run full-on Windows 8. (The Ativ Smart PC Pro runs faster Ivy Bridge Core i3 and Core i5 CPUs, and among other higher-end specs, has a full 1,920x,1080-pixel screen.)
Similar to other Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets, Samsung includes a detachable clamshell-style keyboard that turns the Ativ Smart PC into a makeshift laptop.
Samsung has not yet indicated pricing for either the tablet yet, and the only information we have regarding availability comes from AT&T, which says only that the tablet will be available for purchase “in time for the holidays.”
