The ALGIZ RT7, which runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop), is fully rugged, meeting MIL-STD-810G U.S. military standards for protection against drops, vibrations, and extreme temperatures, and is IP65 rated, meaning that it’s waterproof as well as fully sealed against sand and dust.

The tablet features a Qualcomm MSM8916 (Snapdragon) chipset and 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 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 includes dual cameras (8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing) and 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 and includes a 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.
