The DAP M9700 Windows tablet comes across as a suitable option for those looking at an enterprise-ready rugged device complete with a large touchscreen. This lightweight slab weighs a little over two pounds and its chassis measures less than an inch.

The front panel of the sturdy slate is dominated by a 1024 x 768p 9.7-inch XVGA IPS LED multi-touch display that can recognize gestures to carry out functions like pan and zoom. It claims to be capable of withstanding dust and spills as well as accidental drops on a concrete floor from a height of about 4 feet. The bezel has been embedded with a 2MP camera with auto focus and built-in flash.

“Consumer tablets have their appeal, but for many enterprise applications, they are neither rugged enough nor compatible with existing networks. The M9700 offers a solution that combines the best-loved features of consumer models with a rugged design and the Windows-based operating system needed for seamless migration into existing Windows-based networks,” quoted David Molesworth, General Manager.

Loaded with the Windows Embedded Standard 7 OS, the tablet has been integrated with a 32GB SSD. The GPS-enabled device comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as optional 3G support. It is fueled by 2GB DDR3-800 RAM and a dual core Intel Atom N2600 chipset that ticks at 1.6GHz. The M9700 acquires power from a 5,300mAh lithium-ion battery and sports a SIM card slot, a USB 2.0 port, a stereo headset jack as well as an LIF port for connectivity purposes.

The DAP M9700 price and release date details have not been revealed.
