Early Adopter Mobile Geek: Samsung's slim ATIV Tab 3 claims to be the "world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet," measuring in at 0.3 inches thick and weighing 1.28 pounds. So, yes, it's slightly more svelte than the latest iPad. But the more amazing thing is how much Samsung stuck into this skinny tablet. An Intel (INTC) Atom chip helps extend battery life for 10 hours. Plus, it runs the full version of Windows 8 and includes Office Home & Student.
Another nifty feature, if you also own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, is the SideSync technology. By connecting the two devices wirelessly or wired via a USB cable, you can turn the phone into a second screen and watch the cursor move from tablet to phone. This lets you visually see movement of files between the two devices, and lets you type up text messages on a larger screen. For those perks, expect to pay more. It's available to pre-order on Amazon for around $600.
