By CHPro Network Editors

The durable tablet PCs meet military 810 G standards. The company claims the products are “drop-proof, spill-proof, shock-proof, dust-proof, and watertight.”

For SMBs in need of rugged mobile technology, GammaTech Computer Corp. is rolling out its RT10 series of durable tablet PCs this month.

The company, known for making notebook and tablet computers with military-grade durability, packs into the new RT10 design a touchscreen, a 10.2-inch widescreen display, and Windows 7 compatibility.

The RT10 series meets military 810 G standards for durability. The tablet is “drop-proof, spill-proof, shock-proof, dust-proof, and watertight,” according to the manufacturer. The tablet PCs also weigh just five pounds with an attached stylus.

The RT10 series tablet PCs are available in two different models:

  • RT10A--The core tablet features an Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor
  • RT10D--This features an Intel Core Duo U2500 ULV 1.2 GHz dual-core processor 

“Our RT10 series of rugged tablet PCs redefine the concept of on-the-job computing, making them perfect for the harsh working conditions of industrial, construction, and public works projects," says GammaTech president Steven Gau. "Now data processing and recording is no longer restricted to a far-off office. Any RT10 model can be toted around to take notes right there on site, with virtually no fear of damage from external forces."

The GammaTech RT10 tablet PCs support both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies and run on Windows 7 Professional, Vista Business, and XP Table Edition operating systems.

Its high-resolution (1024x600) WSVGA TFT LCD display features an LED backlight to eliminate eyestrain. The resistive touchscreen responds to both stylus and fingertips.

A nine-cell, Smart lithium-ion battery provides up to six hours of life. Other features include an AC power connector, two USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, slots for both regular and mini SD cards, and a docking station with four more USB 2.0 ports.

The RT10 series are available to industry professionals, group purchasing organizations, government entities, and universities through authorized GammaTech resellers.
