Samsung introduced the first secure tablet for enterprises GALAXY Tab Active

    Good afternoon, Habr!

    Undoubtedly, the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 flagship smartphone and Samsung Gear VR virtual reality goggles became the highlight of the Samsung novelties presented at the IFA exhibition in early September . But there was another announcement that went almost unnoticed by the ordinary audience: Samsung showed its first tablet for B2B clients - GALAXY Tab Active. The new mobile device for enterprises has increased protection from external influences, additional functions, as well as enhanced security policies. Details under the cut.

    Today, the market for secure devices has little to offer when it comes to tablets - in nature there are no more than a dozen. The main problem here is a much more complex process, which most companies simply do not have. The few manufacturers that are able to create a secure mobile device with a large screen diagonal have another problem: the B2B niche is small and highly specialized, while the prices for unkillable tablets are on average three times higher than for analogs for the mass market. In these circumstances, the release of the new GALAXY Tab Active device was an important milestone in the development of the B2B segment, as high functionality combined with a ruggedized design is exactly what

    During the development process, GALAXY Tab Active Samsung turned to future customers for help. In order to understand the urgent tasks and requirements of modern business, the company attracted a consulting group to create a new tablet, which included companies from the Fortune 500 rating . Experts from leading global companies have made it possible to better understand the specifics of markets such as retail, logistics and transportation. By combining the data of this study with its own results of analysis of key markets, Samsung was able to create a device that meets the needs of modern enterprises and designed to optimize business processes and improve employee productivity - the GALAXY Tab Active tablet.

    The tablet has passed the MIL-STD-810G certification - only a small number of similar devices can boast of this. Thanks to its anti-shock coating and durable protective cover, the GALAXY Tab Active can withstand a drop from a height of up to 1.2 meters. In addition, the device complies with the IP67 standard, providing reliable protection against moisture and dust. The tablet owner will not have to worry about dropping, contaminating or getting into a humid environment, damage to the device or its malfunction may occur. GALAXY Tab Active will become a reliable assistant in harsh field conditions - it is not afraid of the effects of heat, cold, dust or water, which is especially important for those who constantly work outside the office. It is officially stated that it can operate in the temperature range from -20 to +60 degrees Celsius.

    The tablet is equipped with an 8-inch WXGA (1280 × 800) TFT screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core chipset with a frequency of 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, as well as a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB). Operating system - Android KitKat (4.4), the interface is a proprietary TouchWiz with improvements and additions. A 3.1-megapixel camera with autofocus will help when scanning barcodes, and NFC near field communication will optimize work processes, saving a lot of time. Interfaces: USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, (2.4 and 5 GHz), GPS and GLONASS are supported. The dimensions of the protected Samsung novelty are 213.1 × 126.2 × 9.75 mm, weight - 393 grams.

    GALAXY Tab Active is equipped with an electronic pen C-Pen, which allows you to use the device in situations where it is impossible to work with the screen with your fingers. The pen will become a convenient tool for those professionals who need to wear protective gloves at work - for example, at a construction site. In order not to lose it in the heat of the working day, the C-Pen is firmly fixed on the protective cover of the GALAXY Tab Active.

    For specialists who constantly work in an open area, on a construction site, or simply do not have access to electricity for a long time, for example, builders, engineers or communal workers, such quality as an energy-intensive battery of a mobile device is especially important. GALAXY Tab Active provides 8-10 hours of continuous operation on one full charge, thanks to a 4450 mAh battery. There is also a mode of maximum energy saving Ultra Power Saving Mode. In addition, the tablet provides the ability to easily replace the battery. Another important feature of the device is a separate POGO connector, which allows you to unload the frequently used microUSB connector and use it for other needs at the same time as charging the tablet.

    GALAXY Tab Active is equipped with Samsung KNOX proprietary security system, which ensures the safety of personal and corporate data. This solution meets the high security requirements of IT-services of enterprises, does not damage the privacy of employees and allows you to do without the cost of a third-party security platform.

    Samsung provides an extended warranty on the GALAXY Tab Active for up to three years. It applies to cases of repair even with mechanical damage. Understanding how important it is for companies to meet deadlines regardless of device malfunctions, the company also provides GALAXY Tab Active users with access to the Smart Tutor Service technical support service. An employee of the Samsung service center is always ready to promptly provide assistance and remotely solve any problems - anytime, anywhere.

    Samsung GALAXY Tab Active will be available in two options: Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + LTE. The tablet in the color scheme Titanium Green (titanium green), will be supplied with a protective cover and an electronic pen C-Pen. The final price of the device in the domestic market has not yet been announced, but it is known for certain that it will be significantly lower than $ 1000. Whether this model will appear in retail in the near future is a big question, but Samsung receives a lot of requests for the implementation of the tablet outside the B2B sector, because it is quite possible that the GALAXY Tab Active will nevertheless be available at points of chain stores or operators (as happened with GALAXY S5 Active, for example).
