voice plan? ativ smartpc can make voice gsm tel call?


    Please use your favorite google android to search for the function. Windows 8 is almighty great.


    The Smart PC isn’t meant for phone calls but the SIM allows it if you use it on a phone


For all S2 user Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean already update to the Galaxy S II


ATIV-1.8Ghz Atom Duo Core
Note 10.1 – 1.4Ghz Quad Core
–how about their performance? Will ATIV be slower?
(I'm not so techno-savvy =P)


oh no, don't misunderstand this. Basically, you must know that there are a lot of things that affect the overall performance of any processor beyond frequency (GHz). This is not a proper way to compare processors, specially among different companies ( such as ARM as in Note 10.1 and Intel in Ativ smart pc) or between generations. For example, an Intel Pentium 4 (a very old processor which was launched long time ago) running at 3.8 GHz is much slower compared to any i3, i5 or i7 running at lower GHz. The reason for this is the improvement in architecture allowing for increases in the number of cores as well as improvements in other features (such as cache memory and bus technology) that allow the modern CPU to get more work done in a given clock cycle. So, it is better to compare processors among the same product line. 😉


    Thanks for the detailed explanation. =)
    Like u said, I guess it's hard to tell whether one is better than the other for these 2 devices just by that.
    By the way, a youtube user said ; "Clovertaril Atom core is about par with Cortex A15 core. A15 core is about twice as powerful as A9 core used in the Note 10.1"


      Application-based performance benchmarks are one of the tools that allows for a reasonably reliable comparison for contemporary generation systems.
      I'm not too sure how review sites that do their own testing (since I just read their conclusions) compare individual processors for mobile systems like tablets and smartphones, though, due to their nature of being a packaged solution (unlike desktop processors that can be standardised on a single test platform).
      This recent Toms Hardware review is a good read:…
      Note that it is reviewing ATIV TAB, the ARM-processor Windows RT version, not the Intel Atom Windows 8, Smart PC (Samsung's muddle-headed classification convention sucks), but the numbers tell the story.


why celcom not offer device with data plan only n payperuse voice call… like maxis, digi n umobile…

I'd wait until Microsoft has worked out all the bugs from Windows 8 before I even consider buying this one. No matter how good the hardware or impressive the specifications, it won't matter if the operating system itself has issues.
