Samsung to launch Windows RT tablet: the 10.1-inch ATIV Tab [Update: more specs!]

Hot on the heels of its first Windows Phone 8 handset, another Samsung device has been outed today. The 10.1-inch ATIV Tab will be the company's first Windows RT device, and is expected to be officially revealed this week at IFA 2012.

Like the new ATIV S Windows Phone 8 handset, the ATIV Tab features a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. The Verge cites "sources familiar with the company's plans" in revealing that the new tablet will weigh around 570g, and that its body will be just 8.9mm thick.

The device will include both a USB and a uHDMI port, along with a 5MP rear-camera and a 1.9MP cam up front.

Additionally, there'll be 2GB of RAM and decent 8200mAH battery, while Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC support will also be included, while we now know that its 10.1-inch display will have 1366x768px resolution.

Samsung's slate is the ugliest-looking of all the WP8 slates announced but the success of their Galaxy line may still help them, I think.

What's with the huge logo? Why can't they put the logo on the back, then make it as large as they want?

Aesthetics, Samsung. Aesthetics, ffs.

Ask Lenovo

Today at IFA Samsung will launch its new ATIV brand of Windows 8-powered devices (that's “vita” backwards, which is Latin for “life”). Running on Windows RT, the ATIV Tab will feature a 10.1″ 1366×768 display in a form factor that is just 8.9mm thick. It'll be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU with 2GB of RAM and either 32 or 64GB of storage. It'll offer WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It will feature Office Home and Student 2013 RT, featuring the touch-friendly versions of the 2013 suite of Microsoft Office programs. The battery is pegged at 8,200mAh. Interestingly, like the Galaxy Note 10.1, the ATIV Tab features dual front-firing speakers. No word on pricing or availability.

If latin for "Life" is VITA, and this is VITA backwards, does that make it "Dead"?

So with their WP8 they cloned their Galaxy line and with their tablets they will clone their Galaxy tab line. Way to innovate, guess they couldnt find anything they liked to copy.
