Samsung ATIV Tab 3 hits USA as new “world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet”

The company responsible for the full ATIV computing line is hitting the Windows 8 tablet environment in the USA once again with the Samsung ATIV Tab 3. This device is also known as the new world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet, coming in at just 0.31 inches thin, weighing just 1.28 pounds. This machine aims to take the Windows 8 tablet world by storm with Samsung's own S Pen technology as well.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 3 comes standard with a Bluetooth keyboard complete with a kickstand so you can key in on-the-go and kicked up like a full-fledged notebook. Samsung suggests that this machine works with 7 hours of battery life (MM12), making certain that you're on-the-go work can keep rolling without need for a charge throughout the day. The ATIV Tab 3 works with no less than an Intel Atom Processor (Z2760) under its hood alongside 2GB DDR2 RAM.

The display on the ATIV Tab 3 rings in at 10.1-inches and 1366 x 768 pixels with 400 nits of SuperBright Plus technology. This machine also works with Samsung's own S Pen as well as a 5-point capacitive touchscreen atop Windows 8 iterations of Samsung's note-taking apps S Note and S Memo. You'll see these apps in action in any of a variety of Samsung Galaxy Note products already on the market (with Android).

Have a peek at SlashGear's Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Review to see more on how the S Pen plays in with this ecosystem's note-friendly displays.

In addition to the hands-on video above, you'll be able to check out our full Samsung ATIV Tab 3 hands-on from the original Samsung reveal event earlier this year.

The Samsung ATIV Tab 3 also works with Samsung's newest in Android/Windows 8 syncing technology with SideSync. This system allows devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4 to team up with the ATIV Tab 3 for wired and/or wireless control, allowing the tablet to gain access to the smartphone's functions in full.

This tablet will be available in-store starting September 1st for $699.99 USD. Sound like a winning price/value combination to you, or would you rather be jumping in on the SideSync party with the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus for right around twice that amount of cash?
