Samsung unveils new tablet... inspired by professionals, built for business

09 Sep 14

Samsung has today unveiled the Galaxy Tab Active, the company’s first tablet built specifically for business.

Seen as the next step in Samsung's legacy of innovation in the tablet category, the Galaxy Tab Active employs the ruggedised, portable design that professionals desire to take on the demands of today's challenging business environments.

"Samsung understands today's businesses have demanding requirements to enable growth," says JK Shin, CEO and head of IT & mobile communication, Samsung Electronics.

"As a trusted global leader in mobile technology, Samsung is ready and able to deliver solutions built specifically for professional-use, featuring innovative offerings and technological capabilities that are unmatched anywhere in the market."

Shin says the Galaxy Tab Active represents Samsung's commitment to meeting customer needs.

In order to learn what business leaders wanted from a mobile device for optimal performance and efficiency, Samsung engaged in a series of advisory group workshops with Fortune 500 companies.

The top companies across vertical markets, such as retail, logistics and transportation participated, providing valuable feedback that went directly into the development of the Galaxy Tab Active.

Combining the results of this research with Samsung's own market insight led to the creation of the Galaxy Tab Active as the first tablet inspired by professionals and designed specifically to boost business productivity.
