Samsung AITV Q: Android or Windows? Why not both!?!

The tablet is a funny little device, a lot of owners still don’t know what they are supposed to be used for even after years of using them (myself included).  It’s to large to have on the go all the time, and besides that is what your smart phone is for, and for business Ipads and Android tablets lack the necessary tools to complete key tasks that would be simple on a laptop.  Windows tablets bring a PC like environment to a more mobile platform, but with the Surface lineup being the only real contender, the options were limited.

I’m very excited to see Windows 7 making the jump to other non-Microsoft devices, and with the Samsung AITV Q, you get more than just a Windows tablet. The hardware isn’t exactly groundbreaking, multi-position keyboards have been around for a while, and while it’s nice to have a physical keyboard for when you are typing long emails, the focus of a tablet is mobility, and strapping a peripheral to the bottom of the unit isn’t making it any slimmer.  What is groundbreaking about the AITV Q is how it runs it’s software, you have your Windows 8 running, but at the same time you have your Android OS running and with a touch of a button you can switch between the two, or even have them using apps on the screen at the same time.

We don’t’ have a price just yet, but the AITV Q should be released sometime later this year.
