The rugged Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 tablet launched in Europe late last year and has now arrived in the US. The tablet is priced $420 (was €500 in Europe) and comes with 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage. You can find it on Samsung.com. There is an LTE version as well, though we don’t have a price for it yet.
The tablet is build for hard working environments. It is IP68-rated and MIL-STD-810 certified. It sports a ruggedized S Pen that works even when the screen is wet and can be used with thick gloves.
The tablet could be put on a “professional-grade” vehicle mount and charged via the pogo pins on its side. The battery is removable too, allowing for easy replacements as it gets old and enabling you to bring a spare one for instant recarging.
