Wishing for a tablet that has the features of both the Microsoft Surface and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (check out Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 here)? If this is the case, the Korean tech giant has just made your wish come true. It has now made the Ativ Q official, which is a tablet that runs both Windows and Android.

Samsung announced (check out press release here), “The ATIV Q is a convertible device with the ability to change modes and has both Windows and Android capabilities. Built with today’s busy lifestyles in mind, it works as a notebook or tablet and gives you more flexibility and convenience than ever before.

“Addressing a common desire among PC users to be able to access Android apps on a Windows-based PC, the ATIV Q allows you to now experience both Windows 8 and Android (Jellybean 4.2.2) on the same device. Not only will you get access to Android apps via Google Play, but you will also be able to transfer files or share folders and files from Windows 8 to Android.

“The ATIV Q sports a hinge design that allows you to transform it into four functional modes. You can lay the display flat over the keyboard for tablet mode; raise the display upright to type just as you would a laptop; float and adjust the display to a comfortable viewing angle; or flip the display to place in the stand mode to watch movies. The four-in-one design of the ATIV Q easily adjusts to give you every possible option in the one device. The ATIV Q is also extremely thin and lightweight, at 1.29kg and only 13.9mm, making it very portable.

“Finally, the ATIV Q introduces the world’s highest resolution, QHD+ (3200x1800) display. Its13.3-inch touch screen offers 2.8 times higher pixel density (275ppi) than full HD displays, and the device is also designed to give you an optimised viewing experience regardless of where you are or the brightness of the environment you are in.”

Expect the Samsung Ativ Q to land in UK shops “later this year.”
