That seems interesting flexibility with this new tablet computer.

Samsung has unveiled a tablet that can switch between the Windows 8 and Android operating systems.

The Ativ Q has a 13.3in (33.8cm) screen that sits over a keyboard that can be folded out for typing or set to act as a stand. In addition it has a stylus.

It comes just over a fortnight after Asus unveiled its own laptop-tablet hybrid which also runs both Microsoft and Google's systems.

One analyst said he expected this to be a trend that other firms would follow.Samsung Tablet Runs Windows 8 and Android [bbc.co.uk]

The Nexus products' stock Android is quite nice. I'm assuming that this Samsung product will have TouchWiz enabled. That would potentially be the only downside to a system like this for me.
