Rugged tablets fill a small but important role in the tablet world. If you’ve never heard of a rugged tablet before, I cannot say that I blame you. Rugged tablets are tablets designed with durability as a primary focus. Rugged tablets do not receive anywhere near the same amount of attention seen whenever Apple or Samsung launches a new flagship tablet because rugged tablets are not really designed for the average tablet buyer.
Since Samsung’s new rugged Galaxy Tab Active 2 was announced this week, I could think of no better time to talk about when you should consider getting a rugged tablet over a regular tablet.
Since I don’t want to waste too much of your time, let me preface this by saying that you probably will not need to get rugged tablets specifically. A standard tablet rental will most likely do you much more good if you are planning a conference or any sort of indoor event.
However, there are certain scenarios and criteria which can cause getting a rugged tablet rental to be the better of the two aforementioned choices. You might want to get a rugged tablet if you worry about your tablet dealing with any of the following:
•Sand or Dust
•Repeated or continuous outdoor use
•Risk of the tablet being frequently dropped
•Vibrations (Rugged tablets can be mounted in vehicles)
There are some other factors that you might have to account for if you are looking for a seriously rugged tablet, such as whether or not the tablet can function after being subjected to high or low temperatures or altitudes, but more often than not those factors aren’t the deciding features.
Generally speaking, if you are working outdoors or in potentially hazardous environments and need access to computing technology, a rugged tablet will probably be the right choice for you.
