Its scary, Samsung have just unleashed something really massive called Samsung Ativ S. Remember that name. The Ativ S basically quickly reminds you of a Microsoft Outlook shortcut on a smartphone/tablet ???. The handset has been made to the same specifications as its Android counterpart the Galaxy Note with a huge display powered by a blazing fast processor.
If there was any talk of Windows 8 as dead – think again. With Samsung now fully behind the platform, expect more from Windows 8 camp and Microsoft.
The Samsung ATIV Range Of Devices
The handset is part of the ATIV range of Windows 8 products that are being launched later this year. The ATIV line also includes a tablet and two notebooks. Whats exciting about the new range is their detachable keyboard-docking systems that allow users to switch between a notebook PC and a tablet PC.
One thing is sure true. This guys are onto a winner. The powerful 1.5GHz dual-core processor and HSPA＋42 connectivity is great for browsing performance and response. Perfect for heavy gaming and work applications like outlook especially with the corporate world is still reliant on outlook.
Windows on posh hardware is good in whatever form. Those that have defected to Android because of the super displays on show there will now have to reconsider again. The prospect of carrying around secure Outlook in the same format as would be on your office computer means that it will be impossible for companies to ignore the Samsung ATIV.
Its compatibility with Windows known for its plug and play features will have many re-thinking on what kind of corporate phones they will order next time.
They have installed Windows Phone 7 on the Galaxy Note, politely highlighting Samsung’s unofficial statement, that, their hardware is so superior, it doesn’t matter what operating system runs on them.
Many X-Box owners will also love this handset with its people hub and integrated X Box live services. Giving the ability to continue playing your games on a large super AMOLED display right where you left off on your console.
