Interested in the Microsoft Surface, but find it too bulky? Want something as slim as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (check out Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 here)? Well, the Korean tech giant has just the thing you’ve been looking for. It has launched the Ativ Tab 3, which is the world’s slimmest Windows 8 tablet.

Samsung announced (check out press release here), “A tablet with the power of a PC, the ATIV Tab 3 makes personal computing easier than ever. As the world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet – as thin as many popular smartphones – it shares a similar design and premium look and feel of the Samsung Galaxy series. It is perfect for creativity and productivity as it features Samsung’s S Pen functionality, high level pen display and S Pen compatibility with MS Office.

“Incredibly thin and lightweight at only 8.2 millimetres thick and 550g in weight, the ATIV Tab 3 is the ideal device to take on the daily commute to work. With up to ten hours of battery life, it is also a great device for taking on most long distance flights.

“The ATIV Tab 3 runs Windows 8, has the ability to run all Windows apps and programmes and comes preloaded with Office Home & Student.

“SideSync is available with both the ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, enabling you to easily switch from working on a PC to an Android-based Samsung smartphone. The PC keyboard can be used to respond to a text on a mobile phone, view maps on a larger screen, display photos and videos on both devices to make editing files even easier, or use an ATIV PC to back up and charge mobile devices.”

The Samsung Ativ Tab 3 will arrive in the UK “later this year.”
