Just a couple of months ago, we ran a story concerning Samsung’s first device that could run both Android and Windows operating systems, sporting a fantastic 3,200 x 1,800 resolution display to boot. Well, it seems that this particular device might not see the light of day as some reports claim that the Samsung ATIV Q has already been removed from Samsung’s website. According to South Korean publication Naver who heard it from their sources, who in turn happen to be familiar with the Samsung ATIV Q claim that Samsung has hit a brick wall concerning patent-related issues with this particular device, which could very well see the Samsung ATIV Q getting the cold shoulder – in other words, cancelled.
Of course, this is but a rumor at press time considering how it is impossible to track Naver’s source down, not to mention that Samsung has yet to reveal anything official at the moment. Not only that, we have no idea as to what patents might have gotten in the way of the Samsung ATIV Q’s launch, but chances are if that is the case, current pre-orders which retailers have already accepted will not be honored. Not only that, a search for the ATIV Q on Samsung’s website proved futile, since the only thing about it was found in the press release which was released on June 20th.
