Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 Overview
The consumer market is awash with tablets of all sizes from all manner of manufacturers. One of those is Samsung but they have also brought to market a device compatible for a wide range of roles. It comes loaded with the software and apps that you'd find on any Android tablet, apps such as Gmail, Google Maps with access to Google Play that not only provides your device with an array of entertainment but also productive apps such as Google Translate and Google Calender.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 has been designed to work with many industries. The anti-shock covering can withstand, up to a 1.2-metre drop, thus giving those such as utilities companies a device that is robust yet compatible with other devices that they may issue to staff so features such as NFC work effortlessly when sharing files or indeed when connecting to other hardware. The IP67 certification also adds piece of mind that the workforce can get the job done without being held back by water or dust.
With the focus on industries that work in more challenging environments the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 brings the C-Pen giving users who require gloves in cold conditions or in a lab a tool to keep them protected yet productive at the same time. The C-pen can be used for note taking or navigating around the screen.

With the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 you get 8-10 hours of life with the 4450mAh removable and replaceable battery. To remove the need of a Micro USB cable Samsung have included a POGO pin, this provides a quick and hassle free solution to keeping your device powered with docking stations for ease of use and access.
The 3.1 megapixel camera to the rear of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 not only offers a solution for recording a working environment but also allows barcodes to be read, ideal if a particular piece of plant is equipped with one. With the front facing 1.2 MP camera conference calls are just a few taps away, giving those on the road the opportunity to be involved with sales meetings and with support for multi port video conferencing for up to eight people, enabling them to share documents directly and simultaneously the Galaxy Tab Active offers true business communication.
