it is true that a tablet that commands a four-figure price tag is not for regular consumers like us. still, we can’t resist featuring the new Algiz 7 Super-Rugged Tablet by Handheld Group, an update to the Algiz 7 ruggedized Windows tablet. being ruggedized means slim form factor is not in the order – instead it is bulk-up for the ultimate in protection, meeting stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibrations, drops and extreme temperatures, while the IP65 rating keeps it sealed against dust and water. improvements over its predecessor include a faster N2600 1.6GHz dual-core Intel ATOM processor, backed by 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, two full mPC!e slots, Ethernet 10/100/1000 port, a 5MP camera with LED flash, enhanced data security with TPM chipset board, dual antenna for improved coverage, and an updated version of the wireless Gobi 3000 technology for higher communications speed. it is of course, running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
other standard features include a sunlight viewable 7-inch widescreen TFT touchscreen display, hot-swappable dual lithium polymer battery pack, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, built-in GPS, plus a host of I/Os such as serial port, microSD card slot, USB 2.0 ports and more. despite being a ruggedized tablet that packs it all, the Algiz 7 Super-Rugged Tablet is still fairly light and compact: it tips the scale at 1.1 kilograms (2.42 lbs) and measures 144 by 242 by 40 millimeters (5.56″ x 9.5″ x 1.57″). the Algiz 7 Super-Rugged Tablet by Handheld Group is available now with pricing “remains unchanged” which means this rugged beauty should cost around $2,699 and up. pricey little thing, but we have to keep in mind that this is a commercial-grade tablet designed for tough environments in industries such as mining, military, geomatics, forestry and the likes. check out a few more product views in the image gallery below.
