DAP Technologies has introduced a new rugged Windows tablet. The DAP MT1010 lightweight tablet offers a Windows operating system that integrates into existing networks and a rugged construction built to survive heavy use in challenging environments. The large touchscreen supports both handheld and vehicle-mounted use, and the device has plenty of I/O ports for connecting to multiple peripherals.
The enterprise-friendly MT1010 features a 10.1-inch, sunlight-viewable multi-touch capacitive display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Compatible with Windows 8, the MT1010 ships with a Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating system for seamless migration into most enterprise environments.
Despite its large screen size, rugged magnesium-alloy construction, and multiple I/O ports — including USB 2.0, mini USB 2.0, Ethernet, serial and HDMI ports — the tablet weighs just 1.36 kg and is less than 2.1 cm thick. Expansion via a dock and an expansion connector provide the most I/O ports available in a tablet, as well as easy integration with legacy peripherals.
Sealed to IP65 and certified for a 1.8-metre drop, the rugged tablet can be used confidently in challenging environments, while extending its use by years.
As with most DAP products, the MT1010 is designed to future-proof a company's investment with a backpack design that allows for expansion.
Because reliable mobile communications are a requirement for business, standard communications features include WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0. Customers can also choose the optional Gobi 3000 WWAN embedded module, which allows the tablet to connect to virtually any carrier network.
Equipped with GPS, a gyroscope, an accelerometer and compass, the MT1010 is ideal for mapping applications, telemetry and location-based service functions.
The MT1010 also includes 1D/2D barcode scanner and standard dual autofocus cameras. With a 5 MP back-facing camera with flash and a 2 MP front-facing camera, the tablet is ready for video conferencing or document scanning.
"With tablets continuing to claim portability superiority over laptops, DAP's new MT1010 tablet allows enterprise customers to benefit from this trend, while maintaining Microsoft Windows compatibility and I/O connectivity with legacy peripherals," said Simon Bowe, Managing Director of DAP Technologies.
The MT1010 includes a 64 GB solid state drive, with options for 128 GB, and runs on an Intel N2600 dual core 1.6 GHz processor.
