AT&T has Windows-powered tablets in its pipeline
AT&T has announced that they will be making available a couple of Windows-powered tablets in due time – most probably before the year is over, of course, to jive with the timing of the Windows 8 operating system’s release. Well, just what are the two models that has captured the attention of AT&T that they would want to have these tablets being made available on its network? They are the Asus VivoTab RT and the Samsung ATIV Smart PC which were specially designed for the Windows 8 platform, and to make matters even more exclusive, AT&T is the only U.S. carrier to offer these new tablets from Asus and Samsung to their customers.
The Asus VivoTab RT is touted to be the first quad-core Windows RT 4G LTE tablet in the market when it is released, and while it packs quite the serious processing punch, that has not affected its functionality in any way despite being crammed into an ultra-thin and light tablet form factor that boasts of a 10.1” multi-touch Super IPS display with ASUS TruVivid technology, 32GB of internal memory, NVIDIA’s next-generation quad-core Tegra 3 TE processor alongside productivity tools such as Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT Preview Edition.
As for the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, this tablet model targets those who want choices, especially if you are a customer who wants a careful mix of PC capability in the convenience of a tablet form factor. There is a detachable keyboard-docking system available for users to switch between a clamshell notebook PC and a tablet PC in a snap. Other hardware configurations include an 11.6” HD PLS display, the Intel Clover Trail 1.5GHz dual core processor and 64GB of internal memory.

After all, what better way to keep yourself occupied this holiday than with a spanking new tablet and a mobile operating system platform to be reckoned with?
