While we all know how impressive Samsung’s mainstream devices are, there are certain areas of business where they don’t make the cut. Thankfully, Samsung has it

s range of robust mobile tools that are built to withstand pretty much whatever you can throw at them. Or throw them at.

In this modern world, working in a robust environment shouldn’t mean you have access to anything less than first-class equipment. The mobile needs for field workers, first responders, police and military are just as important as everyone else - they too need powerful and secure devices.

 Tough tablets.

Samsung currently has two tough tablets on offer with Telstra planning on supplying both by early next year. Both have many of the quality features you have come to expect from Samsung tablets, but also offer:

  • Reliable water and dust resistance with an IP68 rating.
  • Antishock back cover with MIL-STD 810G durability.
  • Non-slip grip even in the harshest conditions.
  • Advanced S pen capabilities.
  • Biometric authentication with facial recognition and fingerprint scanning.
  • NFC sensors.
  • Pogo pin compatibility for easy charging.
  • Samsung KNOX for defense-grade security.
