Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Active3, a rugged tablet that features a replaceable battery and a waterproof S Pen, is available now.
Interestingly, the company opted to add a removable 5,050 mAh battery that can be switched on the fly, so users don’t need to wait for the Tab Active3 to charge to use it again.
While I doubt this feature will reach consumer phones or tablets anytime soon, it’s nice to know that some devices still get that edge.
Other cool features include gloved tablet use and a camera barcode scanner designed for retailers.
The tablet costs $ 799 and you can order it now on Samsung’s website. However, when you navigate to the website, it only says ‘Sales Inquiry’, so it’s unclear how easy it is for regular customers to get their hands on the Galaxy Tab Active3.
The most interesting thing about this tablet is that Samsung has clearly created a device for the market it serves. There is no denying that this is a perfect business tablet and that the Tab Active line has been refined over the years into a device that meets the needs of business customers.
Hopefully this year you can apply that same strategy to your line of consumer tablets.
