Windows 8 and Atom power for $800?
AT&T announced today that it would carry Samsung's ATIV Smart PC on its growing LTE wireless network. Unlike
Microsoft's $499 Surface
, which runs Windows RT, the ATIV Smart PC features an x86 processor and runs
, meaning that it has backwards compatibility with the full Windows application library.
The promise of backwards compatibility, however, is soured a bit by the fact that the ATIV Smart PC uses a 1.5GHz, dual-core Intel Atom processor. Don't expect to be tackling any high-power applications with this tablet.
Other features include an 11.6" display (1366x768) and 64GB of storage (expandable to 96GB via the devices microSD slot).
“We are excited to offer the Samsung ATIV smart PC in stores nationwide ahead of the holiday shopping season,” said Chris Penrose, SVP of AT&T Emerging Devices. “Connected by the nation’s largest 4G network, this Windows 8 tablet gives customers optimized touch interface, instant live tile updates and PC capabilities."
The Samsung's ATIV Smart PC will be priced at $799 and will launch on November 9.
