MobileDemand’s New xTablet T7200 Tablet PC is One Tough Tablet
The iPad, Nexus and the Kindle have created a specific image of what a proper tablet should look like, but there was one tablet that was there before all of them ever came into the picture. MobileDemand created a device almost three years ago dedicated for industry.
It was not be the sleek, thin designs we are used to today, but rather a rugged “I-can-take-a-punch” tablet.
Recently, MobileDemand released the newer version of their tough little tablet that could. This time around, it’s a lot faster, a lot sturdier and looks like it could be used in urban warfare. Their tablet works on classic Microsoft software in order to maintain compatibility with the standard OS for industry computers. The tablet also comes with a platform, providing a blunt, military-like exterior that can weather intense abuse.
The T7200 comes with a 7-inch screen, room for a integrated physical keypad, USB ports, an SD slot, a front-facing camera, and comes comes running Intel’s 1.6ghz Atom processor along with a 64 GB hard drive. The rugged tablet also has a rubber covering to absorb impact and two D-rings for a carry strap.
The industrial market is largely ignored by most tablet consumers, but it has been a cash-cow for for MobileDemand’s customers. The T7200 is designed but the bottom up for use in construction sites and out-doors excavations.
The screen as well has been modified for outdoor viewing since it is probably going to get its most use outside a cubicle. They integrated smart technology to know when the device is “indoor” or out and will switch between two modes in order to provide maximum visibility in any condition. In addition to these elements the tablet can handle extreme heat and is completely protected against dust. It also has a numeric key pad for data entry.
The Mobile Demand’s T7200 is definitely one of the more overlooked tablets, even though it is one of the oldest tablet families on the market. Nonetheless, the industrial market has their own unique device that demands respect due to durability.
Now, why can’t we see an iPad sporting rubber edges and D-rings, hm? You listening, Apple?
