Galaxy Tab Active Pro is Samsung's latest ruggedized tablet

Expanding on its family of ruggedized business tablets, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has announced the US availability of the Galaxy Tab Active Pro, the company´s latest ruggedized tablet designed for mobile workers, the company said.

Building off the success of last year´s Tab Active2, the new Galaxy Tab Active Pro is designed for those who conduct business in harsh environments or beyond office walls–including in the field, on the road, or in inclement weather. The new device will be displayed today at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) 2019 in San Jose, CA.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro is purpose-built for workers in industries such as manufacturing, transportation and public safety, enabling easy access to key applications to take on real-world challenges–both on-site and off. It puts high-durability front and center, able to withstand excessive pressure, temperatures, vibrations and drops through military-standard certification (MIL-STD-810G)1–and featuring IP68 certification for water2 and dust resistance.

For maintaining productivity in wet, inclement weather, the Tab Active Pro also includes an IP68-certified water and dust resistant S Pen, which can be used on a wet display. Additionally, the tablet provides settings for greater flexibility by enabling touchscreen interaction while wearing work gloves3.

Other productivity features for the business user: a 10.1″ display–the largest yet for Samsung´s ruggedized B2B tablet line–and a replaceable, fast-charging battery that can power the device for up to 15 hours.4 The Tab Active Pro features a removable back panel, so a fully charged backup battery can easily inserted while working in the field or to support shift-based jobs.
