Juniper Systems has released the Cedar CT8 Rugged Tablet, a high-performance Android tablet made for rugged environments. The tablet marks a major upgrade in performance and GPS capability from its predecessor. Behind its 8-inch high-visibility display is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-core processor running Android 8.1 with full Google Mobile Services. This processor runs on lower power consumption, generates less heat, and offers better overall performance than the CT7G processor. The rugged tablet also 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. The CT8  is fully-rugged and rated IP67, has an 8000 mAh removable battery, two programmable buttons, Gorilla Glass display, and optional accessories position it as an affordable rugged option for the workplace. The tablet is available globally and works on any GSM network.
