Samsung Announces ATIV Q Windows 8 Convertible Tablet

At the Samsung Premiere Event in London today, Samsung announced a few new products, but one of the most awe-inspiring devices was their new ATIV Q convertible tablet.  The tablet is powered by Windows 8 and the new Intel Haswell CPU’s, which tout higher power efficiency as well as extremely powerful graphics processing when compared to its predecessor, the Ivy Bridge.

The ATIV Q is crafted from magnesium, which is the same metal used for Microsoft’s Surface tablets, and is extremely thin.  What made everyone’s jaws drop to the floor was the convertible capability of the device.  The presenter swung the screen up and out, revealing a keyboard, and then showed off the different ways the screen and tablet could be manipulated into different viewing angles and positions.  The screen also had a qHD+ 3200×1800 pixel resolution, which Samsung claims is the highest in the world for such a screen size.

No pricing or release information was immediately available, but we will keep you posted as soon as we get word.
