If you are in the enterprise field and you are looking to buy a tablet that could resist to shocks, while letting you be productive in the same time, then you probably need to take a look at the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Active slate that’s just been announced for Indian customers. The tablet has been around since the beginning of last fall, but now it is becoming available for Indian consumers, as well.
Designed for enterprise workers, this doesn’t mean that only they should use it. Anybody who is working in a perilous environment could consider it as a possible purchase. The device looks pretty nice and sports decent specs, as follows:
- 8 inch LCD display with a 800×1280 resolution (189 ppi)
- 1.2 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 GPU
- 1.5 GB RAM
- 16 GB internal memory (expandable up to 64 GB)
- 3.15 MP primary camera with LED flash with a 1.2 MP secondary camera
- Android 4.4 Kitkat
- 4450 mAh battery
- 9.7mm thick, 393g weight
- IP67 Dust and Water Resistant
- Samsung Knox Enterprise
- C-Pen Sylus
- Shock Protection up to 1.2 meters drop (with the provided cover)
The tablet is said to be available for Indian customers in the middle of next month for a rumored price of 52,000 rupees. Sure, this is quite a lot and you’re definitely not getting top-notch specs. But if this not your main concern, then it does look like a pretty interesting device. With this move, Samsung is probably looking to take on Panasonic, a company which is known for its rugged products.
Anuj Jain, Senior Vice President Enterprise Business Solution, Samsung India Electronics said that Galaxy Tab Active is the first tablet built specifically for enterprise use. I guess he is probably referring to their own portfolio of products. Anyway, what do you think about it? Leave your comment below and let us know.
