Samsung unveils the ATIV Tab 3, an 8.2mm thin Windows 8 tablet

Along with the announcement of the Samsung ATIV Q and Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, Samsung also unveiled a full Windows 8 tablet that's only 8.2mm thick at their event today, the ATIV Tab 3. The design borrows pretty heavily from their Android Galaxy line, although there's no Android on-board, instead only swiping features such as S Pen stylus support and S Note from its Galaxy friends.

The ATIV Tab 3 features a 10.1-inch screen that has a resolution of 1366x768 and is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" processor along with 2 GB of RAM. The whole tablet weighs an impressively light 550 grams with 8.5 hours of battery life under the hood, and to sweeten the deal Samsung is chucking in a free copy of Office Home & Student on the device.

When the device hits the shelves in August, it will come with a keyboard cover in the box for $699, making it a bit more expensive than the Galaxy Tab line but packed with many more features.
