Clove UK has announced that the Samsung Ativ Tab Windows RT tablet may now be pre-ordered. Those who order will be given priority once stocks of the tablet arrive around the end of October. However, consumers do not have to pay it just yet using their credit cards.
This tablet, which is priced at £457.50 or £549 including VAT, is one of the first Windows RT tablets in the UK to be priced. This price, however, is still not final, but it may give interested buyers a rough estimate. By comparison, the Apple iPad costs £479, making the Samsung Ativ Tab a more expensive option.
Among the highlights of its specifications are a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with the help of an SD card for up to 64GB. It also has a 10.1-inch High Definition LCD Screen that has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. Its wireless connectivity options are Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC. Support for 3G and 4G connectivity, however, are missing. Wired connectivity, meanwhile, is possible through its USB port, and microHDMI port. The tablet likewise features S-GPS and GLONASS.
The tablet also comes with two cameras: a front-facing one with a 1.9-megapixel sensor plus a rear-facing one packed with a 5-megapixel sensor.
The Samsung Ativ Tab Windows RT tablet already made a public appearance during the IFA trade show last August, where it was also revealed that the device will be compatible with Samsung’s S Pen stylus. The same device can also be turned into a laptop by attaching a keyboard through its built-in keyboard dock.
As for its appearance, the tablet sports a brushed aluminum rear casing and some design elements of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Users will also find a Windows button on the tablet’s front, below the bottom bezel. Lastly, the tablet has dimensions of 265.8 x 168.1 x 8.9mm and weighs 570 grams.
