There are tablets and then there is tablet that can take the beatings. The Durabook U11 Fully Rugged Tablet is one such tablet. While it is rugged, the lack of keyboard limits its speed in inputting text. Not with the Durabook U11 Fully Rugged 2-in-1 Tablet, though.
It is the U11 we saw previously, but now with an innovative detachable rugged keyboard. In addition to making easier to input text (and use the tablet as a laptop), the keyboard also adds up to three USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, including options for one HDMI port and one LAN port (USB Type A connector).
The keyboard of the Durabook U11 Fully Rugged 2-in-1 Tablet is the first detachable keyboards designed and tested to MIL-STD 810H standards for shock and vibration, and IP65-rated.
The keyboard is a full-size 88-key membrane keyboard with 3-level brightness backlit keys. An optional backlit rubber keyboard is also available for those who requires it.
As for the U11 itself, it is powered by Intel 10th-generation processor, with up to 16 GB of RAM, and features quick-release SSD, DOD-level security, a 11.6-inch Full HD sunlight-readable glove-friendly touchscreen display, and MIL-STD-810G certified.
Plus, it also meets MIL-STD-461G for electromagnetic interference and ANSI 12.12.01 Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations.
The Durabook Americas U11 Fully Rugged 2-in-1 Tablet is designed with tough workplaces, like utility, oil and gas, transportation, field services et cetera, in mind.
So, it is not really for personal use. But if you are loaded with money, I don’t see why you can’t get yourself one.
Speaking of money, the Durabook Americas U11 Fully Rugged 2-in-1 Tablet has a starting price of US$2,399.
