New rugged tablet now on Kiwi shelves

04 May 2015

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active has today been launched in New Zealand.

The device aims to help New Zealand enterprises up-to-the-minute information any environment.

Samsung says that despite ‘Gartner reporting that globally tablets continue rapid growth with an increasing number purchased for enterprise use’, up until now the ‘prevailing view’ in New Zealand has been that consumer-grade tablets just aren’t robust enough for industry.

In answer to this Samsung has launched the Galaxy Tab Active, which the company says is more suited to Kiwi enterprise and which is capable of working in tough outdoor environments.

“Our ruggedised Tab Active has been very well-received in the UK and USA, across a wide variety of industries,” says Verdon Kelliher, enterprise director at Samsung New Zealand.  “With a challenging climate, a construction and infrastructure boom underway, and a focus across the board on increasing productivity and driving cost out of business, we felt that the time was absolutely right to make the Tab Active available here.”

Galaxy Tab Active features

•         Partnerships with GeoOp and SAP mean that it’s ready for the SME or large enterprise business out of the box

•         Protected with Samsung Knox security platform – the Tab Active enables complete separation between business and personal communications

•         Raised and textured control buttons, toughened glass and rubberised casing protect the Tab Active in the harshest of climates and situations with a C-Pen for easy accessibility

•         4G capable for enhanced connectivity

•         IP67 rated to ensure protection from water and dust ingress

•         NFC enabled
