Samsung has just officially announced one of their most interesting tablets yet. It’s named the Samsung ATIV Q, and it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Windows. It’s a 13.3 inch touchscreen device with a resolution they’re calling qHD+, or 3200 x 1800.

Users will be able to switch between Windows 8 and Android 4.2 seamlessly, with Samsung giving the example of jumping over to the Android side to play Angry Birds, or going back over to Windows for some productivity work. The screen’s size and resolution allows Samsung to employ a multi-window-esque environment for running multiple applications at the same time, making multitasking a breeze.

This dynamic duo is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM, and also comes with a 128GB solid-state drive, a 720p HD camera, and boasts up to 9 hours of battery life. Ports are plentiful, with 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, micro HDMI, an RJ45 port that support dongle accessories, and an SD card slot for all your computing needs.

All this was crammed into a package that was just 14mm thin and weighs just 1.29kg. It’ll come in Ash Black, but that’s about it on the front of color options. We’re patiently awaiting details about pricing and availability from Samsung, and you know we can’t wait to get one of these sweet devices in our hands for ourselves. Be sure to stay tuned for all our live coverage coming out of Samsung’s big Galaxy and ATIV premier!
