Samsung Electronics introduced its first tablet that can run both Microsoft's Windows 8 and applications based on Google's Android software. 

The device will allow users to share files between Windows 8 and Android applications, and its hinge design has a keyboard that allows it to operate like a laptop. 

The tablet market as a whole is set to grow by 45 percent this year to 332.4 million devices shipped per year.  Samsung is the Number 2 in the tablet market, holding about 18 percent of the market.  The company has seen its tablet shipments more than triple in the first quarter compared to the year before, while Apple has seen shipments rise by 65 percent. 

This new tablet design desires to, "provide consumers the flexibility to manage their digital lives on their terms whether they are in the office, at home, or on the go," says Samsung's head of sales and marketing for mobile devices.

Samsung has also introduced the ATIV Tab 3 which, at approximately the thickness of a smartphone, it is presenting as the thinnest Windows 8 tablet.
