What would the tablet segment be without rugged tablets? Those make it possible for people in the most dangerous working fields to access Android and Windows, while using a totally protected machine, encased in metal and rubber. One such machine is the Getac A410, that just debuted, with Windows 10 in tow.
The product is a rugged tablet with your choice or Intel Skylake Core i5 or Core i7 CPU. It also provides 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, plus 32 GB of SSD storage, but there are also 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB storage models. The screen is a 14 incher that makes use of the LumiBond 2.0 technology, for optimal sun legibility. You can choose between HD and Full HD resolution, plus there’s a special mode that lets you use the screen during rain.
A rough point stylus has been included too. Other specs include a Full HD webcam for videoconfernces, an 8 MP main camera with LED flash and 4G LTE support. There’s also WiFi 802.11 ac, courtesy of Intel, as well as Bluetooth 4.2. As seen on several other devices with rugged abilities, we have physical buttons here, as well as the ability to hot swap battery packs.
Getac A140 offers special security features, like the TPM 2.0 suite, that protects the device from intrusions in the system. Various authentication methods are on offer here, like RFID, SmartCard, fingerprint scanners and more, Windows Hello included. The ruggedness of the device involves resilience to drops of up to 1.2 meters in height, as well as water, dust, vibrations and extreme temperatures. We don’t have a price, but I’m sure it’s above $1000.
