fancy a really tough tablet for your fieldwork? well, if you are all up for Windows 7 or 8 Professional OS, then the GETAC F110 Rugged Tablet might just be your cuppa. powered by Haswell processors, with a choice of 1.9GHz Intel Core i5-4300 or 2.1GHz Intel Core i7-4600U, both offering Turbo Boost Technology that enables a maximum processing speed of 2.9GHz and 3.3GHz, the F110 (sounds like a fighter jet model, doesn’t it?) is equipped with a large 11.6-inch LumiBond sunlight readable LED display with multitouch technology, boasting 1,366 by 758 pixels and 800 NIT of brightness. from the look of it, the F110 has a surprising “gentle” aesthetic for a device which is MIL-STD 810G and IP65 certified. with those assurances, this big guy should be able to shrug off vibration and drop, and of course, water. if that’s not enough, i.e. you need to take things to the extreme, you be glad to know it is MIL-STD 461F-ready.
toughness and beauty aside, this rugged tablet also packs a 4GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 8GB), up to 256GB Solid State storage, Intel HD Graphics 4400, dual-band wireless ac, Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and with the usual Windows-typical I/Os including a USB 3.0 port, a docking interface, headphone and microphone combo jack, HDMI port, optional RF antenna pass-through for GPS, WLAN and WWAN, and expansion slots for barcode reader, or Ethernet port, or microSD, RS232 port, or an additional USB 2.0 port. since it is targeted mainly at the pros, it is offered with several options, including 4G radio, SiRFstarIV GPS, HD webcam and a 5MP autofocus camera. yes. you heard that right, cameras are optional. being a pro workhorse, it does come with hot swappable dual li-ion battery that offers up to 12.4 hours of usage and it does come with a suite of security features too. we are not sure the sticker associated with the GETAC F110 Rugged Tablet, but if you keen, you can hit up GETAC website to ‘get a quote‘.
