Samsung’s new ATIV brand (we’re still trying to get the pronunciation right on that one) is all about Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. At IFA 2012, they were showing off the new ATIV tablet, a Windows-based slate that has a 1.5GHz dual-core Intel Atom CPU with 2GB of RAM and a 10.1″ 1366×768 display. The tab is powered by a 8,200mAh battery, and is NFC-capable.
Then there’s the ATIV Smart PC Pro also running on Windows 8 with your choice of either an Intel i5 or i3 IvyBridge CPU. It has integrated Intel HD 4000 Graphics, and offers 4GB of DDR3 memory. At 11.6″, the display is a full 1080p panel with 400nits of brightness. It’s also capable of doing cellular data and offers full-day battery life.
