Samsung ATIV Tab GT-P8510 10.1-Inch Tablet PC Features
Samsung’s ATIV Tab proved such a surprise hit that the company has not only produced a follow-up tablet but also a spin-off in the form of a fully functioning PC. It is driven by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a very generous 2GB of RAM, this tablet seems to fly along.
Physically the ATIV Tab is an ultra-thin tablet. There are the front-mounted speaker grilles and this is the best location for gaming and movie watching than speakers on sides or at the back of the slate. The front-mounted speaker grilles are located in the upper half of the tablet, so your palms will not cover them while using it. Samsung has not worked really hard to make the ATIV Tab look very different. Its design looks similar to the Galaxy Note 10.1; however it does manage to feel better and look better. Build quality is acceptable and its plastic might be prone to scratching, so a case will be necessary. The back of the ATIV Tab is nice to touch and has a brushed aluminum look with a premium feel.
The screen delivers 1366 x 768 pixel resolutions; it is very bright at 400-nits and most definitely clear enough for everyday working. Viewing angles are impressive.
The core specifications are solid, with Windows 8 RT powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM in support. That is double the amount of RAM you have seen even in high-end devices. This version is 32GB of storage, which is expandable via a microSD card slot for adding more. On top of the tablet is fully packed with buttons and ports including a micro HDMI output and a full-size USB 2.0 port; both are covered under the same plastic lid. You also find the memory card slot under a cover. There are also the 3.5mm audio jack along with a lock/power button and the volume rocker on the top of the tablet.
Additionally, if you are going to do a lot of typing, there is a port for connecting an optional keyboard at the bottom. With a hinge hole on each side, you can firmly attach the keyboard to the tablet. You can connect a mouse via the USB 2.0 port. Alternatively, you can also use a wireless Bluetooth keyboard for convenience.
Unfortunately, the Samsung ATIV Tab does not charge via USB port, it uses a proprietary connector for charging only, it is found at the bottom left. The 8200mAh battery delivers a longer battery life, it will get you through a day of use.
The Samsung ATIV Tablet runs the programs you need on a Windows 8 RT operating system. There are a couple of other goodies on board. You can create, edit and share documents with Microsoft Office RT suite including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and more, along with Music Hub, ChatON, Family Story and more are the full set. Browse the web and run apps at the same time.
Microsoft has done a great job of redesigned a rich and complex Windows 8 into a touch-friendly and easy-to-use everyday companion without compromising its capabilities. This outstanding user interface allows you to personalize your desktop, making all your favourite people, apps, movies, photos and websites easy to access, and come alive with tiles that update your info in real time
With SkyDrive, you are connected to the cloud wherever you go, so you can easily store and access your files, photos, videos and more on the move. Sync all everything you want including calendars, contacts, messages, email and other files via Microsoft SkyDrive, plus run all your favourite Windows 8 apps and games.
Overall, the interface is impressive and easy to use. The split-screen feature allowing you to accommodate two apps at a time. It is user friendly and good-looking. The ATIV Tab is not the most powerful hardware but it is a solid device. Plenty of pre-installed apps to keep you occupied, as well as Windows Services. With ATIV Tab, you are now looking at a device that can finally support high-resolution screens, NFC and multi-core CPUs, so this tablet is every bit as rich and powerful as Android.
There is the issue with apps as well, Windows as you know it is gone, Microsoft’s app market is hopelessly behind Apple’s and Google’s, however Microsoft finally has the consistent cross-device ecosystem that will be increasingly hard for developers to overlook.
