Check out Samsung’s other new Windows 8 device. This is the ATIV Q, a ultra thin convertible laptop-tablet hybrid-y thing that simultaneously supports both Windows 8 and Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2! It’s true, I myself have dreamed of such reality-altering OS marriages. But I never thought I’d see the day when Google and Gates are sleeping under the same fondle-friendly display window. But the promise has massive potential. Users can access Android apps via the Google Play marketplace and also share files between the two operating systems.
While amazing, that is just one of few innovations the ATIV Q puts forth. The 13.3 inch QHD+ display will also support 3200 x 1800 display resolution (275ppi) over HDMI. Samsung boasts the display will perform well indoors or out. Expanded functionality includes an innovative hinge design that makes way for 4-different modes of use. You can lay the display flat over the keyboard for a traditional tablet mode. The display can also be raise like you would a laptop. It can be furthe adjusted for comfortability. Users can also flip the display to place it in stand mode and watch media and videos. The unit only weighs 1.29kg at 13.9mm.
