GBM InkShow: MobileDemand xTablet T8700 Rugged Tablet PC



MobileDemand xTablet T8700 Rugged Tablet PC What do you get when you mix Vegas, CES, a rugged Tablet PC, and three destruction-hungry GBMr’s? One of the best InkShows ever, that’s what.

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,

  • Meets MIL-STD 810F for ruggedness (drops, shock, sealing, water, dust, temperature)
  • Integrated backlit numeric keypad enables exceptionally easy data entry
  • Integrated imager and bar-code reader makes data collection simple
  • Integrated mag strip reader makes it an instant POS “line busting” tool
  • Long lasting battery – provides 7 hours of uninterrupted use
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than consumer grade computers
  • Rugged design to survive rough and extreme handling by demanding mobile workers

    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.
