Not content with launching a myriad of mobile devices at its Unpacked event this week, Samsung has also revealed another new tablet - one that's built for business users ready to take on the great outdoors.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is the world's thinnest ruggedised tablet, which means it can handle quite a bit of water and dirt.
It has an anti-shock covering that can withstand a 1.2-metre drop, with the protective cover on. And it also comes with a C-Pen, which is essentially a pen that can be used with gloves on.
This is very much a tablet that has been pushed for outdoor work use. Samsung was pretty clear that this is a business tablet, though. But it does feel like something that would suit anyone who is, well, active and needs to take a tablet outdoors with them.
Samsung claims the device will provide between eight and 10 hours of use from its 4,450mAh battery, which is hot swappable allowing you to pack a few while on the move.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active also comes with a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor, Android 4.4 and an 8-inch WXGA(1280 x 800) screen. It packs 1.5GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of internal memory that's expandable up to 64GB through a microSD card.
Connectivity options include USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and NFC. It also packs GPS, an accelerometer and a light sensor.
Pricing and release date is still to be announced.
