Samsung’s first ruggedized tablet for the enterprise, the Galaxy Tab Active, will be available in the US starting this month. Pre-orders for the tablet are now open, and interested consumers can shell out $699.99 to grab the device. The Galaxy Tab Active is as rugged as they come, feature IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, and an anti-shock covering that can help it withstand a 1.2-meter drop. Despite being a lower mid-range device, the Galaxy Tab Active sports NFC connectivity, something Samsung believes will help professionals like logistics and transportation managers, retail auto sales representatives, and others.

The Galaxy Tab Active also comes with a C-Pen, a stylus Samsung says will help those who use gloves in their field of work. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Tab Active features a 8-inch 1280×800 display, a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, a 3.1-megapixel rear camera, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, and a 4,450 mAh battery touted for 8-10 hours of general usage. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, with the usual topping of Samsung’s TouchWiz UX, and will be available in Titanium Green.
