Tablets are great devices for surfing the web, reading an e-book, playing a game – provided you’re careful with the darn things and aren’t actually planning to take them out in the real world. These things are as fragile as a newborn, but Getac doesn’t believe this needs to be the case.
The company has released a rugged Android tablet, the Getac Z701, which can be used in places besides an airport or couch! It features a glove-friendly touchscreen display made of Gorilla Glass, a capacitive touch sensor and LED backlighting. More importantly it was created to MIL-STD 810G/IP65 specs so it can survive a drop from up to six feet, and is certified for resistance against dust and liquid. It can even endure temperatures from -4°F to 122°F.
As far as specs, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, is available in 3G, and offers front facing and rear facing cameras. The only downside is that it is a bit pricey – $1,499 for the Wi-Fi model and $1,799 for the 3G version. You can get your hands on this rugged tablet in October.
