Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is a rugged tablet
Here's a tablet that's designed to take a beating.
It's the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active, designed for business types and unveiled here at E4 2014 in Berlin.
Let's take a look.
So, this tablet is all about being rugged.
It's dust resistant and it's water resistant as well.
Samsung said it wouldn't recommend holding it under water for a long period of time, but it should handle light water damage.
So, you'll be fine to take out in the rain.
As a security conscious device, this is got access to Samsung Knox software which stores all of your important documents and private files.
Beneath its rugged exterior, however, this is a pretty standard Android tablet.
It ha an 8 inch display.
That's got a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution.
Humming away inside is a 1.2 gigahertz quad-core processor, and it's running Android version 4.4 KitKat.
Around the back there's 3.1 megapixel camera.
And inside there's 16 gigabytes of storage, which if you need to you can beef up using a microSD card.
So Samsung's aiming this squarely at businesses for now but we would like to see a consumer version.
And that's because if you do want a tablet that's ready to face the elements you currently don't have very many options.
