Life in mobile conditions that also have elements of hazardous weather, shocks, and temperature fluctuations can be extremely hard on your normal everyday Android or Windows tablet computer. Many truck drivers have already found this out under unfortunate circumstances, often to the tune of hundreds of dollars of repair. GammaTech is trying to even the field a bit in favor of those who need a tougher work tablet on the road.
Enter the GammaTech TA10 Tablet computer. It’s a direct shot at the latest offering from the Panasonic ToughPad line, the FZ-G1 in particular.
The GammaTech Durabook TA10 will occupy the high-end side of things where tablets are concerned, and it boasts of a 10.4” display with a high performance CPU, carry an ultra-high brightness LCD display, and runs on an Intel Ivy Bridge processor. All this comes at a hefty price, but it still rings in under the lofty price of the Panasonic Toughpad. The TA10 will cost around $2,100 street.
Expect the 10.4” XGA TFT LCD display with LED backlight to work well under any lighting conditions, where the resistive multi-touch panel with tempered glass will be ideal for the viewing of drawings, files, and web pages.
A couple of six-cell battery packs offer longer battery life on the move, and just to make sure you have an easy time with in-the-field identification and tracking purposes, the Durabook TA10 will feature an optional UHF RFID reader and Barcode scanner.
Security is always a concern with computers used in off-site locations. For that reason, the TA10 boasts features such as TPM 1.2 data security technology, Kensington lock connector, and Intel anti-theft technology (AT) or Computrace asset management and data protection. A FIPS 201 fingerprint scanner for digital imaging of fingerprint patterns is also available.
