Not long after the release of the ATIV Book 9 Lite ultrabook, Samsung launches the ATIV Book 9 Plus and the ATIV Tab 3. If the ATIV Book 9 Plus is an impressive ultrabook, the ATIV Tab 3 is even more than just another Windows 8 tablet. With a design inspired by the popular Samsung Galaxy series, the ATIV Tab 3 is the world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet.

Additional features include a 720p camera, two USB 3.0 ports, Mini VGA and Micro HDMI connectivity, as well as one 1.8 mm headphone/microphone combo jack.

Using the same MM12 battery as the ATIV Book 9 Plus, the Tab 3 has an autonomy of up to 7 hours. Featuring dual cameras (720p front/2 MP back), it also comes with one micro USB 2.0 port, Micro HDMI and a headphone/microphone combo jack. The S-pen shipped with the ATIV Tab 3  has 1,000 pressure sensitivity levels.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
