Handheld computer: Fully rugged tablet PC offers many features


Handheld computer: Xplore Technologies recently introduced the XSLATE B10, cited to be the industry’s most fully featured, fully rugged tablet computer to date ­ and the hardest mobile worker yet.

At 10.1 in., it’s compact, yet commanding in the field and sets a new industry standard in both connectivity and ruggedness. It is the first and only Windows®-based rugged tablet in the industry to come standard with eight IP-65 rated I/O ports built-in and to have four of them sealed from behind for full protection against water and dust ingress, even when open. These include True Serial, (2) USB 3.0, RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet and an Xplore exclusive built-in HDMI Input (optional).

The B10 comes standard with the Intel® Core i5 CPU, and is upgradeable to i7 vPro CPU to provide top speeds to process data. The C1D2/ATEX-compliant tablet also boasts a 20-hour hot swappable second battery option, ultra-fast 4G LTE broadband, Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth® 4.0 connectivity to balance its industrial toughness with all-day mobile computing power that meets and exceeds the needs of customers, from frozen tarmacs to sweltering oil rigs. Customers now have access to a premiere, fully rugged and lightweight tablet with all the ports and battery life necessary to stay active in the field, whether in telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation or distribution.
