Samsung revealed the all new ATIV Q today; a Windows 8 convertible notebook tablet that includes several new features like the ability to run Android apps in Windows.
The hallmark feature of the ATIV Q is indeed the ability to enjoy both Windows and Android (Jellybean 4.2.2) applications on a hybrid laptop/tablet. The new ATIV Q allows users to adapt the device to fit any situation regardless of whether you need a Windows notebook, a Windows tablet, or access to your favorite Android apps.
Users will not only get access to Android apps via Google Play but will also be able to transfer files to share folders and files from Windows 8 to Android, marrying the mobile and PC experiences.
The ATIV Q features a unique hinge design that allows the user to transform the tablet into four modes. Lay the display flat over the keyboard for tablet mode. Raise the display upright to type just like 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 ATIV Q is also extremely thin and lightweight at 1.29kg and only 13.9mm.
The ATIV Q includes a display with an extremely high definition "QHD+" resolution of 3200x1800 pixels. The 13.3-inch touchscreen offers 2.8 times higher pixel density (275ppi) than full HD (FHD) displays for viewing fine details. ATIV Q is also designed to provide an optimized viewing experience regardless of location and high brightness in outdoor environments.
SideSync is a new feature available on the ATIV Q that enables users to switch from working on their PC to an Android-based Samsung smartphone. With SideSync, the user's PC and mobile device become one. Simply use the PC keyboard 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.
