CORVALLIS, OR — Handheld Group, a manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, has announced a major upgrade to its Algiz 10X rugged computer. The Algiz 10X, a 10-inch tablet designed for field professionals, now features the new Windows 8 operating system and a more powerful processor that speeds startup and operation, increases software compatibility, and doubles processor performance.
The Algiz 10X is IP65-rated and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards, which means it’s protected against dust, water, vibrations, drops and extreme temperatures. It has a large, 10.1-inch touchscreen with outstanding screen visibility, yet it weighs just 1.3 kilograms (2.9 pounds) and is only 32 millimeters (1.2 inches) thick.
The new Algiz 10X also carries the powerful Intel quad-core N2930 1.83 GHz processor with 2.16 GHz boost.
Like all of Handheld's rugged PDAs, smartphones and mobile computers, the Algiz 10X is specifically developed for field workers in industries such as geomatics, logistics, forestry, public transportation, utilities, construction, maintenance, mining, military and security.
