Meet Android’s Fully Rugged Champion

Android™ has cultivated an impressive workforce mobility culture within the last couple years thanks the unique security and flexibility of its open source environment. But, as many mobile workers are starting to realize, Android alone can’t protect against the environmental challenges of today’s most industrial sectors and Hazardous Locations (HazLoc).

It’s true: Android never fails to deliver some of the most advanced data security defenses and extremely easy-to-use collaboration tools – all of which are critical for telecommunications, transportation and public safety organizations with distributed assets and dispersed teams. However, Android has had to become increasingly reliant on the proven physical toughness of supremely rugged tablet PCs to ensure uninterrupted performance when employed by mobile workers in extreme climate conditions.

XSLATE D10 Fully Rugged Android Tablet

Fortunately, the new Xplore XSLATE D10 Fully Rugged Tablet reports for work today . This extremely connected and supremely rugged mobile computer has the bona fide skill set and toughness to, endure through any workplace challenge. Powered and protected by what customers consider to be an ideal mix of Android ease of use and security, Intel processing prowess, and Xplore’s industry-leading rugged tablet chassis, the XSLATE D10 satisfies rising market demand for more PC functionality in the field. It also boasts more on-the-job security for data capture and sharing by the mobile workforce.

Now, some may argue that rugged Android devices have long held a place in more industrial vertical sectors such as telecom, public safety, and warehouse/distribution, but, in my opinion, none have quite maximized Android’s potential as a top mobile productivity force for workers. That’s because, until now, there wasn’t a rugged tablet that met all the internal and external criteria that enterprise customers deem necessary for their most critical mobile workflows and Android-driven applications.

VDC Research Tablet Report

As a recent VDC Research report called out, “tablets are an increasingly popular selection for enterprise line of business (LoB) applications” because of their ability to address “mobile workers’ need for a portable mobile device, while providing sufficient display real estate to support meaningful applications.” In particular, tough tablets that can deliver the following capabilities in a single device have become most appealing:

Perhaps that’s why the C1Z2/ATEX-compliant XSLATE D10 tablet PC is already proving why it’s the fully rugged champion that Android needs to excel in the enterprise mobility sector. The D10 has the most complete coverage of the above LOB mobility requirements.

Extremely connected and more data-driven than its predecessors, the XSLATE D10 marries a rare 4GB RAM, up to eight standard I/O ports, and double the storage space of other Android mobile devices within a single rain-proof, dust-proof, and gas-and vapor-resistant chassis that won’t break down on the job when things get tough. In fact, this durable tablet’s upsized 10.1” screen gives you big picture access to the information that you need most to get the job done right, and right now, on even the brightest sun-lit day.

Honestly, the XSLATE D10 rugged tablet simply makes your toughest jobs a little sweeter, thanks to the impressive Android 5.1 Lollipop OS on the inside.

But, don’t just take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.
