First Looks

The company's apparently worked hard to offer a very similar user experience to its Galaxy Tab range and our experience agreed with that -- it felt like a slightly thick Android tablet when we were swiping around the web, menus or obligatory rounds of Angry Birds.

It lacks some of the sex-appeal of the MacBook Air but it's certainly one of the sleekest and slimmest convertibles out there running Windows. We only had a brief play with the device and the signs are good.

Slightly too chunky to work as a designated tablet, the additional convertible options are a serious boon to its credentials. Similarly, while the need for both Android and Windows 8 OSs might not be felt by many, it helps separate the Q’s business and pleasure attributes.

Weighing just 1.29kg with the promise of 12-hours of battery life, the ATIV Q is one of the most exciting and interesting tablets. With Android and Windows together, it could just be the perfect tablet for people that want everything.
