Ativ QThe mobile OS wars rage on, but Samsung seems to be hedging its bets with the recently-unveiled Ativ Q tablet.

The 13.3-inch (3,200 x 1,800 HD resolution) ATIV Q will run on Windows 8, but have the ability to switch to stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean without needing to restart the device. Photos and other data will purportedly be transferable between the OSes, and Android apps can even be pinned to the Windows 8 start screen.

The tablet also features a convertible design with a built-in QWERTY keyboard, able to be turned into a tablet, laptop, or video player with adjustable stand. Pricing is to be confirmed.
