Samsung ATIV Smart PC coming to AT&T on November 9 for $800

updated 11:50 am EST, Mon November 5, 2012

Accessories for Windows 8 tablet will follow later in November

AT&T on Monday revealed it will begin shipping the Windows 8-powered ATIV Smart PC tablet on November 9, with pricing set at $800. The 11.6-inch device runs a 1.5GHz, dual-core Intel Atom processor and has the full-blown operating system that's found on desktop and notebook PCs, hence the $300 premium over a Microsoft Windows RT tablet. The tablet has 1366x768 resolution and has 64GB of flash storage space supplemented by a microSDHC memory card slot.

The OS can be upgraded to Windows 8 Pro and the tablet is also backwards-compatible with Windows 7, Vista, or XP. A trial version of Microsoft Office 2010 is preloaded as well.

AT&T will also offer two accessories for the tablet, including a $40 VGA adapter and $49 Stand Dock. Both arrive late in November, with the latter adding a USB port and an Ethernet jack, while the VGA adapter allows outputting to a VGA monitor from the tablet's microHDMI port. Other accessories are also promised but were not detailed at this time.
