Rugged Mobile Technology Leader Announces Major Upgrade to Specialist Tablet Devices
Thursday, February 5, 2015.
Rugged mobile device manufacturer, Handheld Group, yesterday announced a major upgrade to its popular Algiz 10X rugged computer product.
The Algiz 10X, a 10-inch tablet which is designed for field-based mobile professionals, now features the new Windows 8 operating system with a much more powerful processor that speeds startup and operation, increases software compatibility and doubles processor performance.
Windows 8.1 Pro offers enhanced features to this range of devices which will help users easily connect to company networks, access one PC from another, and encrypt data.
The Algiz 10X is IP65-rated and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards, which means it’s protected against dust, water, vibrations, drops and extreme temperatures. It boasts a large, 10.1-inch touchscreen with outstanding screen visibility, yet it weighs just 1.3 kilograms and is only 1.2 inches thick.
"By using the very latest operating system available from Microsoft, customers can now enjoy quicker startup and operation, increased software compatibility and improved support for touchscreen-based tablets, among other benefits," commented Johan Hed, Handheld’s Director of Product Management.
The new device also carries the Intel quad-core N2930 1.83 GHz processor with 2.16 GHz boost. This processor allows for both higher performance and lower running temperatures. Compared to the Algiz 10X’s previous processor, the N2930 more than doubles performance benchmarking, RAM support, number of cores and performance per watt.
"We have dramatically increased performance levels without sacrificing operating time or mechanical design," Hed continued. "We have also improved our wireless communication support. Besides 802.11 b/g/n on 2.4 GHz, we now support both 802.11ac and 802.11a on 5 GHz. The upgraded Algiz 10X also supports LTE, which provides substantially faster data speeds, both up and downstream, and increased overall network coverage."
Like all of Handheld's rugged mobile devices, the Algiz 10X is developed specifically for field workers in industries such as geomatics, forestry, mining, public transportation, utilities, logistics, construction, maintenance, military and security.
