Samsung introduce ruggedized tablet in SA

Samsung has introduced a ruggedized tablet in South Africa resistant to water and dust, targeting business users working in rough places such as factories, construction or mining sites.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active comes with a protective case to endure bumps and drops.

According to Samsung the Galaxy Tab Active, which is a tougher version of Tab4 with stylus, can be protected from dust and water.

In short it can endure being dropped in a warehouse, construction or mining site.

The Galaxy Tab Active was on show at a business breakfast hosted by Samsung.

The tablet is incorporating new technology into the workflow of workers in different industries.

It is designed to take on some tough enterprise user handling in rough environments such as factories, construction, mining sites and warehouses.

Listening to Samsung executives at the breakfast, it was clear that the tablet was built for a function and not for fun, not for us general users.

From a first glance, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active looks like a Tab4 but ruggedized.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is available in South Africa at R7999.00 and you can get it from all mobile phone operators.

If your main job requires to work in unfriendly and rugged places, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active might come in very handy.

It also has a coverless micro-USB port that maintains easy connectivity while keeping dust and debris out. In short, Samsung claims that you can take this device to any tough working environment.

What’s more important is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active supports NFC connectivity for sharing content between smart devices – tablet and smartphone – while on site.

I wonder whether Samsung will bring an affordable version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active to the consumers, who are working in rugged environments.
