Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Active2 has now arrived in the US market.
First announced last October, it’s a rugged tablet device aimed at in-the-field business applications. And to that end, it’s compatible with other enterprise solutions, designed to enable mobile fleet management with Omnitracs XRS trucking software, and to enable rapid barcode scanning with the Scandit platform.
As for its specs, the device boasts of MIL-STD-810 certification, attesting to military-grade durability, along with IP68 water and dust resistance. It also sports LTE connectivity, a replaceable battery, a 5MP front camera and an 8MP rear camera; and it comes with an S Pen stylus.
Unlike all of Samsung’s most recent flagship smartphones, the Galaxy Tab Active2 lacks an iris recognition system. But the device does employ facial recognition to allow users to quickly and easily unlock their devices – a particularly useful feature in situations where gloves are required for work. In other scenarios, there’s also a fingerprint sensor to enable another form of biometric authentication.
The Galaxy Tab Active2 is now available in the US market, priced at about $420.
