while we appreciate large display tablets, those who are slogging out in rugged environment may not share the same sentiment. maneuvering along narrow catwalks with tons of low hanging pipings with a 10- or 11-inch device is not fun and this is where the GETAC T800 Fully Rugged Tablet comes in. the T800 is a 9 by 6 inches (about 229 by 152 mm) small tablet that combines the best of today’s technology, clad in a fully ruggedized package, and the portability of a small size tablet. with over 25 years of building rugged computers, GETAC sure knows a thing or two about ruggedness, and it is only natural that the T800 embodies all the features and virtues that will allow it to perform its task – including a MIL-STD-810G build and an IP65 rating that allows it to survive 6-foot drops and shrugging off whatever you or Mother Nature can throw at it – spills, vibration, dust, extreme temperatures – you name it.
processing power comes from a 2.16GHz Intel N3530 quad-core chip and 4GB RAM and it has a 8.1-inch multi-touch HD LCD with LumiBond display technology boasting 600 nits of brightness for sunlight readability. other features include onboard Intel HD graphics engine, up to 128GB solid state drive, built-in wireless ac, Bluetooth 4.0 technology, HD front-facing camera, a 5MP main camera, and a 2,100 mAh lithium-ion battery providing up to 8 hours of usage per charge. there is also an expansion slot for 1D/2D imager barcode reader or Ethernet 10/100/1000 port and a unique SnapBack add-ons feature provides additional capability like SmartCard and RFID reader/magnetic stripe card reader, or adds an external battery for extended usage with just a quick snap. options include dedicated GPS and 4G LTE radios. the GETAC T800 Fully Rugged Tablet will be available for order in June, starting at $1,599 and $1,999 for the standard and 4G LTE models, respectively.
