Samsung Galaxy Tab Active

$698 (LTE version); $598 (Wi-Fi version)

Samsung touts the Galaxy Tab Active as the first tablet built specifically for business. With its rugged cover, the device is supposed to be able to withstand being dropped from a height of up to 1.2m.

It is also water- and dust-resistant, having 1P67 certification. A C-Pen stylus is included with the Galaxy Tab Active, giving users an alternative input method should they be wearing gloves.

Battery life is rated at 10 hours and can be extended by activating the Ultra Power Saving Mode. This turns the screen black and white, and keeps only messaging, Web surfing and other essential services on.

Need a way to show off that exhilarating bike ride or downhill ski session? Toshiba's Camileo X-Sports Action Camera lets you do that. Equipped with a 2-inch LCD screen and a built-in image stabiliser, it can shoot stills and record video from a first-person perspective.

A plethora of accessories - remote control, waterproof casing and several mounts and clips for your bike, surfboard and helmet - let you put it to work right out of the box.


Pioneer XDJ-1000 Multiplayer


This media player is the same size and has the same layout as the brand's professional series. The difference here is that the XDJ-1000 features a 7-inch, full-colour, high-resolution touchscreen instead of the physical buttons more commonly seen on similar devices.

The touchscreen has a multitude of features, including Keyword Search, for locating a specific track quickly, and a Browse function for detailed information on a particular track, including its genre, album art, tempo and performer's name.

It also offers Wi-Fi connectivity, a Jog Wheel to shuttle through media quickly, a Pro DJ Link function to connect multiple DJ media players and compatibility with rekordbox, a software for a DJ to prepare tracks and manage music files before performing a set.
