Samsung ATIV Q: The Android tablet, at the same time ‘The Windows Laptop’Samsung ATIV Q dual OS

The Samsung ATIV Q is a hybrid magic device, with just one quick motion, it transforms from a Windows 8 slate into a full-fledged laptop. With you just tapping an icon, it will boot into an Android Jelly bean, allowing you to surf through your favorites in the Google Play market.

The Haswell i5 core processor is the hottest around now, and that is what it is packing into the market. It has a 13-inch display with a resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels Oh My God! The pricing or availability is yet to be disclosed, but we will keep you updated so as not to miss this out.


The Samsung ATIV Q is a standard 13-inch slate and if you lift up the display, it will reveal a keyboard packed underneath. The keys is designed to fold up and lock behind the keys which makes swiping much easier, the same way it will work on other touch-screen laptops. Just like the converting technique on the Sony Viao duo, but Samsung moved it advance. Instead of just converting between laptop and slate, the screen lies flat, lifted on top and parallel to the keyboard.Samsung ATIV Q on stand

The screen rotates automatically, as you turn it over.

The Samsung ATIV Q device also packs as S-Pen stylus for writing notes with freehand or playing when you are bored.

The device is a 13-inch machine with a 14 mm thickness, skinny and portable enough to slide into most bag packs and it weighs around 1.3kg, very easy to carry all about.


The 13.3-inch Samsung ATIV Q comes with a resolution of whooping 3,200 x 1,800 pixels, the highest ever seen on a 13-inch machine. The pixel density is complete at 275ppi bigger than the 264ppi on the 9.7-inch Retina display iPad.

It can work as full fledged windows 8 laptop, and when the day feels so bored, you can quickly swipe into an Android tablet surfing the Google Play to make a gaming console of your time.


The magic machine packs the latest Intel Haswell i5 core processor on which both the Android and Windows depend.
