Samsung’s ATIV line of tablets have all run Windows 8 (unlike its Galaxy Tab or Galaxy Note line, which are powered by Google’s Android software).
ATIV Q announced that “users can own a tablet that switches between Windows 8 and Android on the fly”.
“Android apps can be pinned to the Windows task bar, as well as opened directly in Windows 8.” -Patrick Pavel, VP of European ATIV Marketing for Samsung
Well as Androids running on a Windows 8 PC isn’t new to us like Asus and Lenovo. Despite the fact this integration isn’t something new, Samsung’s innovative ideas made this possible that Google operating system and apps working along were better than other products in the industry.
You can convert between Android and Windows for the ATIVC Q, as well as the tablet. You can flip the screen up that reveals a hidden keyboard underneath. The display can also be completely parallel or perpendicular to the keyboard for ease of use, but still it would depend on how the user configures it on his own convenience.
