A heady combination of military 810G durability standards, wireless connections and security options, the GammaTech T7Q tablet PC comes across as a rugged companion to tag along on outdoor escapades. It is capable of withstanding dust, spills, shocks and drops in addition to resisting salt, extremely low temperatures and even fog.
The sturdy device tips the scale at 3 pounds and the ergonomic hand straps attached to it should add to the tablet’s portability factor. An optional docking station for vehicles ensures that users can continue using it even when traveling. Additionally, its swappable, twin battery pack can cough up the juice for close to 10 hours at a stretch.
“Whether used on the road, in an office or at home, the lightweight and fully rugged T7Q offers exceptional peace of mind. This new tablet has the reliability that lets users concentrate on their work without having to worry about physical or functional damage during extended, everyday use, even if everyday use is in harsh environments,” commented Jen Chen, GammaTech president.
Prospective users have an option to configure the GammaTech T7Q rugged tablet with either the Intel Atom processor N2600 that runs at a speed of 1.6GHz or the Intel Atom processor N2800 that ticks at 1.86GHz. Also included is 2GB DDR3 memory as well as the Intel NM10 and GMA 3650 GPUs. The slab can even accommodate an mSATA SSD drive in its compact form factor.
Encased in a magnesium-alloy exterior, the tab is outfitted with a 7-inch WSVGA TFT LCD resistive multi-touch backlit display, along with an ambient light sensor capable of adjusting brightness. The Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi-enabled slate has been embedded with an Ethernet port and three expansion slots as well. And if that’s not enough, it features two customizable buttons, a magnetic stripe reader, a bar-code scanner and an RFID reader amongst others.
The GammaTech T7Q price stands at $2,000 and it will be available in August. The tab is even backed by a three-year warranty.
