The World's Most Rugged Android Tablet? Getac Says So

Summary: Getac's "extreme" Z710 tablet: withstands drops from up to six feet, dust- and liquid-resistant, withstands freezing temperatures, runs Google Android. Yee-haw.

Getac today revealed what it calling "the globe's most durable Android operating system product," which is the type of outstanding that creates me think of one of those little natural Android operating system people dressed in a full fit of Arthurian shield. (Sir Gawain and the Green Android, anyone?)

With a 7-inch Gorilla Cup capacitive (yet business glove-friendly!) touchscreen show display, SiRFstar GPS indicator and less-than-two-pound weight, it's a strong bet. Add the surprise, dirt, and wetness level of resistance, and it's the type pc that won't make you panic if you get captured the heavy rain storm that just started over ZDNet's New You are able to head office a minute ago.

More specifications for those interested:
  • 8.5 by 5.6 inches, and "just over" one inch thick.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, and that RF pass-through SiRFstar GPS.
  • HD webcam and a 5-megapixel still camera.
  • Configurations for barcode scanning and RFID.
  • Certified to operate in extreme temperatures ranging from -4 degrees Fahrenheit to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
Who would use such a thing? ZDNet readers unshackled by cubicle chains, of course: folks in the public utilities, logistics and automotive industries.

The Getac Z710 starts at $1,499; the 3G-equipped version starts at $1,799. It's available beginning this October
