Samsung’s Windows 8 tablets should hit the streets in late October. But they won’t be Samsung’s only tablets running a Microsoft operating system.

Samsung is also introducing a 10 inch Windows RT tablet called the ATIV Tab.

Samsung Ativ Tab

The ATIV Tab features a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and Microsoft’s new version of Windows designed to run on devices with ARM chips.

As such, the ATIV Tab won’t be able to run older Windows apps designed for computers with x86 processors (which covers pretty much every Windows PC you’ve ever used). But the tablet will be able to handle Metro-style apps from the Windows Store, as well as desktop-style apps that have been ported to run on ARM chips.

The tablet has a 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, a 5MP rear camera, a USB port, and uHDMI port.

It supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC, 2GB of RAM, and the tablet will be available with 32GB to 64GB of storage.

The Samsung ATIV Tab measures 0.35 inches thick and weighs 1.25 pounds.
