Getac launches the most technological advanced fully rugged tablet with android 4.1

Aimed at sectors such as utility, automotive, transportation, and field services, which require a portable and lightweight device (just 800g), the Z710 comes with a battery life that is comprehensively longer than its competitors giving over 10 hours of operational time.

The device is fully integrated to boost performance in the field, making it the ideal companion in the diverse Australian climate. Key features include high sensitivity advanced GPS technology (SiRFstarIVTM) which is accurate to 1.5 metres for precision positioning, whilst a high frequency RFID reader, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3.5G WWAN with both data and voice capabilities provides high performance connectivity for fast, accurate data download and efficient communication.

A 7” capacitive touchscreen using proprietary LumiBondTM technology offers an ultra-sensitive touchscreen which can be operated even whilst wearing gloves and a high definition 5 MP auto-focus camera provides users with the ability to visually record information if required.

“Getac is committed to producing industry-leading rugged technology and the Z710 with Android 4.1, sets a new standard for tablet computing in tough Australian environments,” says Frank Bryan, Getac Country Manager at Synnex Australia. “This latest upgrade is reflecting Getac has listened to the Australian business customers’ requirements and demands.  Vertical industries, such as utility, are requiring an everyday tablet that can handle extreme temperatures, in particular, at the outback areas.”

The Z710 has been built to Getac’s unrelenting rugged standards and is MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certificated.  In addition to its rugged criteria, it is the world’s first ANSI/ISA 12.12.01 certified fully rugged tablet – meaning it can be used in hazardous locations (such as areas where flammable gas may be present).

Thanks to the Android 4.1 Operating System, the Getac Z710 also offers a more fluid and smooth operation experience for users, improved security features, Google Play and other Google Mobile Services.

“The way in which our customers use devices in the field is changing at a rapid pace,” Mr Bryan says. “Synnex are delighted to distribute the cutting edge Getac rugged solutions for this change. We are constantly working with Australian resellers and businesses to provide solutions which optimise performance in demanding environments.”

The Getac Z710 is available now at Synnex Australia starting from RRP AU$1395. For more information visit:
