Most of us do happen to carry a tablet around, and chances are we would also have taken the necessary steps to ensure that the tablet itself is well protected with some sort of case, or at the very least, a protective layer for the display to minimize the risk of scratches. Well, a rugged tablet is not an everyday occurrence, and to see GammaTech deliver the rugged Durabook R11 tablet in not just one, but four new separate bundled configurations, is definitely worth mentioning to say the least. GammaTech is an old hand at rugged computing devices just in case you were wondering.
For starters, the Durabook R11 tablet will come with a brilliant 11.6″ widescreen display, where it will also tip the scales at 2.73 pounds, making it the lightest of the lot from GammaTech to date, not to mention the thinnest rugged tablet in its class. In other words, the Durabook R11 is more than ready to rock and roll with you, regardless of whether you mount it in a vehicle that runs critical mobile dispatch and mapping applications, or if you happen to be outside collecting field data, at the same time maintaining real-time remote communications in even the harshest of environments.
Each bundled Durabook R11 tablet will ship with GammaTech’s three-year DURABOOK Peace of Mind (POM) No Fault Warranty, now how about that as the evidence of faith in a particular product by the manufacturer themselves? In fact, the Durabook R11 tablet has been certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD- 461F, and IP65 specifications, and the four COTS (Commercial off the Shelf) configurations of the Durabook R11 tablets will meet the different needs of Public Safety professionals, where such bundles can also be customized by departments as each situation is different.
The asking price stands at a minimum of $2,199 (all the way to $2,999), but the basic will net you a 4th generation Intel Haswell Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, a capacitive multi-touch sunlight panel, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated 5MP rear camera, a front-facing camera, and either Windows 7 Pro 32- or 64-bit as the operating system of choice.
