The CT8 – the third Cedar tablet from Juniper Systems – marks a major upgrade in performance and GPS capability from its predecessor, the Cedar CT7G Rugged Tablet (2017 release).
The 8-inch high-visibility display is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-core processor running Android 8.1 with full Google Mobile Services. The Snapdragon results in lower power consumption, less heat generated, and better overall performance, Junipter said.
Cody Draper, Juniper Systems’ Cedar product manager, said: "Sites that need a formidable, cost-effective rugged tablet will find the CT8’s features easily meet and exceed those needs."
The CT8 Rugged Tablet includes dual nano-SIM card slots and enhanced location services with a u-blox M8030 GNSS chip. It acquires and tracks different satellite systems around the world concurrently to deliver higher accuracy and reliability with maximum satellite access, including European Galileo, Chinese BeiDou, and American GPS."
Fully-rugged and rated IP67, the CT8 boasts functionality and versatility everywhere. Its 8,000 mAh removable battery, two programmable buttons, Gorilla Glass display, and optional accessories position it as an affordable rugged option for the workplace.
The CT8 is available globally and works on any GSM network. No mention of price and apparently you have to ring up Juniper to ask for a quote.
