Why Is A Rugged Tablet PC Heavier Than An iPad ?
Steve Kunert Rugged Tablet PC Director of Engineering at MobileDemand explains:
There is that “Oh, !*?#” exclamation when a consumer tablet is dropped and shrapnel flies everywhere. Workers with rugged tablets accidentally drop their tablets and simply pick them up and keep on working.
The thing most people unfamiliar with rugged tablet PC systems say when they first hold one is, “Wow! That’s heavy. Why?” The answer is pretty straightforward. The rugged tablets are designed and built to survive every day all day, intensive use. Rugged tablets such as MobileDemand’s xTablet T1200 with an i5 processor and a 10.4” screen are full Windows 7 or Windows 8 capable devices.
