Yesterday, AT&T announced that it will offer the Samsung ATIV Smart PC later this year. Shortly after the announcement, we met up with AT&T and Samsung for a brief hands-on with the tablet. We saw several Windows 8 devices at IFA in Berlin last month, but we’re really blown away by what Samsung has coming down the portfolio. The ATIV Smart PC was super fast, offers a microSD card slot for added storage, 4G connectivity and a brilliant display. It was also super fast and we were easily able to multi-task with two applications open side-by-side at the same time.
The tablet packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Intel Clover Trail processor, according to a Samsung representative at the table and 64GB of internal storage. The 11.6-inch display felt a little too big for us and it was definitely hard to hold with just one hand. But if Samsung launches accessories to hook up a keyboard, mouse and a display, we’ll be head-over-heels for this bad boy.
Neither Samsung nor AT&T announced pricing for the device.
