PC? Tablet? No, it’s ATIV!
Samsung Electronics revealed its brand-new ATIV devices based on the Windows 8 OS for Smart PCs, tablets and Windows Phone 8 for smartphones on August 29th at IFA.
With the introduction of Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems, Samsung introduced “ATIV”, the new brand for its Windows-based devices. ATIV, the reverse the word VITA, meaning “Life” in Latin, is a pledge by Samsung to make everyone’s life extraordinary with excitement. The full range of Windows-powered devices will enable this goal. Samsung introduced ATIV SMART PC, ATIV Smart PC Pro, ATIV Tab, and ATIV S, a full range of ATIV devices.
Samsung’s ATIV devices are simple, powerful, and beautiful. The Windows operating system is sleek, intuitive and compatible across devices. Samsung and Microsoft will provide users with an advanced, productive and creative experience with the ATIV devices. The full lineup is designed for a simple user experience to share your work and ideas as well as to allow users to enjoy consuming content.
Combing revolutionary design, the power of a notebook PC and the convenience of a tablet PC, the 11.6-inch Samsung ATIV Smart PC and ATIV Smart PC Pro are Samsung’s 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. Of course, the purpose of these devices is to allow for great mobility with maximum productivity. In addition to commonly-provided input methods, the ATIV Smart PC and ATIV Smart PC Pro are equipped with the renowned S Pen, delivering real writing and drawing experiences for both on the desk and on-the-go creativity and productivity.
Samsung ATIV S is a new smartphone for both work and entertainment featuring Windows Phone 8. ATIV S brings a stunning hairline design and high performance with a range of content-sharing options. Users can enjoy the brand new Windows Phone 8 experience on the ATIV S’s stunning 4.8” HD Super AMOLED display.
The ATIV series comes with Office Home and Student 2013 RT, offering the new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote to help transform the way people get things done at home, school or work. These applications feature complete document compatibility, meaning people can open and create any document, edit it, and share it with others just like we do with PCs.

Look at its slim lines! It is 9.4mm thick and weighs only 750g.
The 10-finger touch screen allows you to freely arrange your contents and keep your OS main screen well organized.
The biggest advantage of the ATIV is that it comes with MS OFFICE, featuring Word 2013. We were psyched to see the new version, which is simpler and better. When we used it, it worked well without any lag.
Of course, lots of reporters and journalists were thrilled to check out the ATIV. Its detachable keyboard-docking system drew a lot of attention. It kind of felt like the device was a celebrity and the journalists were the paparazzi – they couldn’t stop taking photos.
In addition, fun 24 contents are provided by Samsung. While the S Camera fully takes advantage of the performance of the integrated front and rear cameras, the S Player ensures seamless playback of images and videos in any format.
We tried Fresh Paint app on the ATIV PC. When you run the Fresh Paint, it will appear like this (below).
You can mix your colors on the palette, just like a real artist.
Tada! Well, we are no Michaelangelo, but let’s try something more complicated.
You can take a shot using the camera and edit your picture with Fresh Paint app. It feels kind of strange to do this on the PC, but once you get used to it, it’s a breeze.
We edited out pictures using the app and it was simple and fun. You can write anything you want and add stickers.
Here we are, at the end of the 2012 Mobile Unpacked event. We were amazed by the products and honored to be here. This event was totally unforgettable.
