Anyone looking an alternative to the 8-inch rugged tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3, may be interested in the Juniper Cedar CT8X2 that was released this week, also with Android.
This is an 8-inch HD tablet with 1280 x 800 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage.
What sets it the most apart from Samsung’s rugged tablet is more of a focus on navigation and location sensors, with the UBLOX M8030 navigation chipset that syncs 3 navigation sensors at the same time, has high sensitivity, and the lowest power consumption among all navigation sensors on the market today.
That makes it particularly useful in any navigation and location plotting area. It even has a high-quality 13MP rear Sony camera, and a 5MP front camera for selifes in the field, or more serious use when work calls.
Other practical features includes a swappable 8000 mAh battery, 450 nits brightness, programmable front buttons, Gorilla Glass 3, 4G LTE, and support for barcode and RFID accessories.
