The Galaxy Tab Active delivers on its promised ruggedness, surviving the kinds of mayhem you're likely to encounter when you take a tablet away from the relative safety of a desk job. Coupled with the enterprise class support built into the Tab Active, the device would be just about ideal for an on-the-go worker -- if the device had the ability to add cellular connectivity.
At $699, the Tab Active costs nearly twice as much as tablets that easily out-perform it. However, that higher price gets you a more durable tablet that's built to last with impressively long battery life. It's also worth pointing out that this tablet is less expensive than rugged offerings from Panasonic's Toughbook line. Overall, impressive durability and long endurance make the Galaxy Tab Active a reliable option for mobile workers who are rough on their gear.
