In this InkShow, we take a look at the “secret” tablet I took with me to Vegas: the just announced xTablet T8700 from MobileDemand. With new specs like a 1.2 ghz Core 2 Duo processor, support for 2 gb of ram, SSD, and an outdoor viewable display, this button-activated touch + active digitizer Tablet PC took everything, including an unbelievable ride through Las Vegas, that Matt, Warner, and I could throw at it and survived. This is a Tablet PC built for the vertical market – truck drivers, delivery personnel, construction, field-force workers, and more. The integrated keyboard and optional barcode reader make it a natural for taking inventory in places like beer coolers, food freezers, and more. When you see the damage we tried to inflict on the T8700, you’ll come away quite impressed. I know we were.
Here are some more specs from MobileDemand’s newly unveiled website, RuggedTabletPC.com:
MobileDemand also sent me their mounting kit and docking solutions, so I’ll be doing 2 more InkShows on those accessories later in the month.
