Getac announced this week the debut of a new rugged tablet, the K120 model, that’s pictured below. This device is meant for the safety personnel all over the world and it’s supposed to reach the likes of paramedics, police officers and firefighters.
First responders are a key segment for such machines, needing their Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) for vital intelligence and situational awareness. They must make informed decision and have a patient’s file on hand if need be. Of course, we’re dealing with a full rugged device. Getac K120 also comes with solid specs, including an 8th gen Intel Core i7/i5 processor and quite a few connectivity options.
It starts off with GPS, then there’s 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth. Upfront we find a 12.5 inch multi touch display and then there’s a series of security options, including multi layer authentication, fingerprint and smartcard readers, as well as RFID readers. Getac K120 has video, voice and electronic data communication and meets the MIL-STD-810G standard, as well as the MIL-STD-416G military durability standard, aside from the IP65 water and dust one.
It can go anywhere basically without getting damaged. It can be dropped from up to 1.8 meters in height and can operate with no problem between minus 29 degrees Celsius and plus 63 degrees. For extended operation in the field, the K120 offers a dual hot swap high capacity battery, meaning you’ll never run out of power. A variety of docking solutions and accessories will be provided.
Getac also offers a 3 year bumper to bumper warranty, which covers accidental damage as a standard. The product is already available in dedicated stores on the Getac site.
