IFA 2012: Samsung unveils their first Windows 8 tablet the Samsung ATIV Tab

At IFA 2012, Samsung joined the ranks of other phone makers like Sony Mobile Communications in unveiling a slew of devices. Let's first stop by their Windows 8 offering. Dubbed as the Samsung ATIV Tab, this is Samsung's first Windows 8 tablet and is probably the world's first (correct me if I am wrong). Anyway, Samsung in their official press release made effort in explaining where the naming "ATIV" comes from. Well, according to Samsung, ATIV is the reverse of the Latin word VITA which means "Life". Well, they can't use Vita can they? That name is probably already owned by Sony with their PSP Vita. Anyway, Samsung did not mention anything about when the device will become available nor the price, so we will just have to wait for that information. For now, go after the break to check the device's specs.
