Handheld computer: Ultra-rugged Android tablet

Handheld computer: Handheld Group, a manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, announced the launch of its new Android tablet, the ALGIZ RT7. The ALGIZ RT7 is a powerful, lightweight and ergonomic 7-inch tablet designed for reliable performance in demanding environments.

The Algiz RT7, which runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop), provides a wide range of features and exceptional value to mobile workforces. It’s fully rugged, meeting stringent MIL-STD-810G U.S. military standards for protection against drops, vibrations and extreme temperatures, and its IP65 rating means that it’s waterproof as well as fully sealed against sand and dust. Weighing just 650 grams, the Algiz RT7 is designed for mobility.

Industry-leading technology from Qualcomm -- an MSM8916 (Snapdragon) chipset and 1.2 GHz quad-core processor -- powers the Algiz RT7 for impressive processing speed, ultra-fast connectivity and long battery life. The Algiz RT7 comes standard with LTE data and voice capabilities as well as 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, BT Class 1 and Class 2, and NFC functionality. It also boasts dual cameras (8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing), as well as dual SIM card slots. The unit comes with a built-in accelerometer, gyroscope and e-compass and a stand-alone u-blox GPS receiver for navigation.

Designed for the mobile worker, the Algiz RT7 sports a high-brightness 7-inch outdoor-viewable capacitive display that can handle true outdoor challenges. Battery performance is key for any mobile application, and the Algiz RT7 comes with a long-life 3.7V 6000mAh lithium-ion battery. Four programmable buttons allow users to launch and use applications in the field. To enhance data capture, users can choose an optional 2D imager or RFID plus 2D imager.

“Our new Algiz RT7 offers enterprises an exceptional value and is a highly requested product from both our end users and our extensive partner network,” says Jerker Hellström, Handheld Group CEO. “This ultra-rugged tablet delivers best-in-class performance to assist fieldworkers in their daily tasks. The Algiz RT7 is built for tough environments and delivers a streamlined Android experience with power and features appropriate for market demands.”

The Algiz RT7 can be ordered immediately. Shipping will start in December with volume deliveries starting January 2016.
