In the spirit of Moving Forward, we want to give our Standard Bank South Africa customers the opportunity to be the first owners of Samsung’s new Ativ tablets, which is running the brand new Microsoft Windows 8 operating systems before anyone else in South Africa.
We’re proud to be part of the worldwide launch of Windows 8 but to add to our excitement (and we hope yours too) the Standard Bank banking app is the first South African banking app in the Windows 8 app store. This means we’re giving our techno –savvy customers exclusive access to this latest technology.
About the products: Windows 8 is designed to provide a single, connected experience across all the devices people use in the modern connected world. It allows customers to use a tablet as a mobile device, then easily dock the device and have full keyboard and mouse support. Through its fast, fluid, and dynamic nature, it gives people a flexible and powerful experience to do their work. It will fit into your personal and business just perfectly.
The Samsung Windows Ativ tablet is designed for portability, with a width of just 8.9mm and weight of 570g. It has a 10.1” HD display, 2GB RAM and microSD memory capability. With Dual Screen for split screen viewing, a massive battery life, and flexible user modes, the Ativ Windows Tablet allows for maximum multitasking, productivity and efficiency.
The tablets can be purchased on the Standard Bank website by Standard Bank cheque or credit card holders (from tomorrow). They will sell for R6695, below the usual retail price of R7999, and will come with a free cover. There are a limited number available so be sure to get yours.
Standard Bank is also offering customers an ADSL service at a 15% discount through Internet Solutions. This includes access to 500 MB of free wi-fi traffic at any “always-on” hot spot around the country, a 1GB mailbox and a fax-to-email account.
