Great news for all you techies who love the outdoors. Fujitsu is set to release a new rugged tablet dubbed Arrows Tab with Japanese telecom NTT DoCoMo. This tablet will not only ship with dust and waterproof hardware, but it will sport Android 3.1 according to TCMagazine.
Like most Android tabs, the new Fujitsu tablet will carry a 10.1-inch screen and feature a display resolution of WXGA (1280 by 800). The number one appeal that the Arrow Tab will have is its ruggedness, and at this time it’s not clear just how dust and water-proof the Arrows Tab will be. Below, are the specs to the Arrow Tab:
- LTE – The tablet will be released as an LTE tablet on NTT DoCoMo
- Capacitive (1280 x 800) touchscreen
- 1 GHz dual-core processor (Texas Instruments OMAP 4430)
- 1 GB of RAM
- 16 GB of internal storage; a micro SD card slot
- 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi; Bluetooth 2.1
- Rear-facing 5-megapixel camera with a front-facing 1.3MP camera
- GPS built-in
- micro USB port
- Dimensions: 262 x 181 x 11.5 mm; 599 grams
So far there is no word as to how much this tab will cost once it hits the market, my bet says it will be in the usual $400-$500 price range. All in all, it may be worth it considering the fact that it would be the only rugged Android tablet on the market from any major manufacturers at the moment.
