BERLIN, Germany - August 29, 2012 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced its brand-new ATIV devices based on the Windows 8 for Smart PCs, tablets and Windows Phone 8 for smartphones.

With the introduction of Microsofts Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems, Samsung introduces ATIV, the new brand for its Windows-based devices. ATIV, the reverse order of the word VITA, meaning Life in Latin, is a pledge by Samsung to make everyones life extraordinary with excitement. The full range of Windows-powered devices will enable this goal. Today Samsung introduces ATIV Tab 5, ATIV Tab 7, ATIV Tab, and ATIV S, a full range of ATIV devices. Samsung is one of very few companies that is capable of offering such a diverse product lineup and is committed to offering more choices based on the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms for consumers.

Samsung is delighted to introduce a wide portfolio of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8-powered devices. With our leadership in design and technology and Microsofts leadership in operating systems, together we are able to provide customers with a full range of ATIV devices for cross-category convergence, said Seong Woo Nam, Executive Vice President of IT Solutions Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung is a highly valued partner and its great to see this investment in a global brand for its Windows-based Smart PCs, tablets, and phones, said Nick Parker, corporate vice president, OEM, Microsoft. This gives us an increased opportunity to inspire our customers with excitement and confidence as they enjoy Windows experiences across their beautiful Samsung devices, including entertainment scenarios, mobile productivity and cloud services.

Samsung ATIV Tab 5 & Samsung ATIV Tab 7

Combing revolutionary design, the power of a notebook PC and the convenience of a tablet PC, the 11.6-inch Samsung ATIV Tab 5 and ATIV Tab 7 are Samsungs next set of smart devices. These provide computing power with Windows 8 functionality as well as full Windows 7 compatibility. Each device features a detachable keyboard-docking system that allows users to easily switch between a clamshell notebook PC and a tablet PC form factor. These devices allow for great mobility with maximum productivity.

An advanced 10-finger multi-touch screen provides a technological leap in interactivity, surpassing the traditional two-finger touch features. Its enhanced sensitivity allows users to pinch-to-zoom, rotate images and scroll through pages with ease to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications.

In addition to commonly-provided input methods, the ATIV Tab 5 and ATIV Tab 7 are equipped with the renowned S Pen, delivering real writing and drawing experiences for maximum productivity, both on the desk and on-the-go. Just like using a pen or pencil, the Wacom digitizer pen is capable of meeting the demands of professional designers with its 1024-level pressure sensitivity. The pre-loaded S Note application accompanies the S Pen to make writing and drawing as simple and intuitive as possible.

While the S Camera fully exploits the performance of the integrated front and rear cameras, the S Player ensures seamless playback of images and videos in any format. This content is presented with Samsungs SuperBright 11.6-inch Full HD LCD display, producing the most vivid colors and sharpness with 400nit brightness.

Beautifully stylish and ultra-portable, the ATIV Tab 5 and ATIV Tab 7 are only 9.9mm and 11.9mm thick, respectively; and there are no compromises on performance. The ATIV Tab 7s powerful Intel Core i5 processor can handle particularly demanding professional use and multimedia consumption; while the ATIV Tab 5s next generation Intel Atom processor is a solid match for everyday productivity tasks.

Despite their compact and portable form factor, the two devices feature USB 2.0(Smart PC), USB 3.0(Smart PC Pro), mHDMI, miniSD and two extra USB 2.0 ports on the keyboard. To get the experience going, the ATIV Tab 5 has a battery life of up to 13.5 hours, whereas its stronger sister device, the ATIV Tab 7, runs up to eight hours.

An 8,200 mAh battery provides enough power to allow you to work on your projects and review or share them virtually anytime and anywhere. Moreover, the ATIV Tab is compatible with a range of Windows-based PC devices and accessories, including printers, keyboards, projectors, external monitors, and other peripherals, through its USB port and uHDMI, with no need to install extra software.
