Samsung has recently unveiled the Galaxy Tab Active Pro – the new addition to its ruggedized tablet family, which also includes the more compact Tab Active 2 with the 8-inch display screen. The new tablet was designed according to client requirements, to provide a solution for mounted forces (emergency services, the military, and industrial sectors), and is intended for operation on such platforms as armored vehicles, trucks, forklifts and similar vehicles.
The new Galaxy Tab Active Pro is an android-based, slim, lightweight (653g) ruggedized tablet computer with a 10.1-inch display offering a 1200x1920 pixel resolution and high illumination intensity of up to 550 Nits, enabling convenient operation in direct sunlight. The advanced touchscreen enables users to work comfortably and accurately through using an S-Pen device even while wearing work gloves. The 8-core processor and 4GB RAM enable intensive simultaneous operation with multiple complex applications. The Tab Active Pro has a user-replaceable 7600 mAh capacity battery, capable of powering the device for 15 hours of video operation from a full charge.
The Galaxy Tab Active Pro was designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions and extreme weather conditions in compliance with the strict ruggedness testing criteria of the US Army (MIL-STD-810G). This standard was created to accurately evaluate the limitations of devices through not less than 21 tests, including pressure resistance, dropping onto a concrete surface, operation under extreme temperatures, and more. The Galaxy Tab Active Pro complies with the IP68 standard, which reflects built-in water and dust resistance to a depth of 1.5 meters for a period of 30 minutes minimum.
IsraelDefense has learned that the recent launching of the new Galaxy Tab Active Pro had been preceded by a long and comprehensive process of collecting demands and requirements from clients (including Israeli clients), pursuant to the successful assimilation of the previous tablet model of this family, Tab Active 2, by the various branches of the IDF. The new table is currently under evaluation by various defense and emergency agencies in Israel.
