Alltab underwater tablet now official
Being waterproof is a big plus for any device, but no average consumer needs to take a tablet deeper than a few feet. However, military and commercial divers might need to use their slates at 50 meters or more. For them, Finnish startup Alleco has just introduced a device simply called the Alltab.
Alleco's tablet is, in fact, a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 with a solid protective shell and a few additional accessories. According to the official website, the Alltab comes in two versions - the Alltab TechRec can be used down to 90 meters, while the MilPro version allows its user to go as deep as 150 meters. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 weighs just 0.6 pounds, the Alleco Alltab is much heavier, weighing about 3.14 pounds.
The standard retail package includes the Alltab with the Galaxy Tab S2 inside, a tough waterproof storage case, and a wireless charger. The Allure data gathering software and the Allhub Internet & GPS system are also included. The customers who purchase the MilPro version also get the Alleco Navigator software and can acquire various MOLLE-compatible attachments as needed.
The Alleco Alltab can also be used for underwater video and photography by connecting wirelessly to an external action camera. Since this is a highly specialized device, it does not come cheap and those interested in acquiring one should contact Alleco for details on the pricing and availability of the Alltab.
