MELBOURNE, Fla., 17 May 2011. The ARMOR X10gx and ARMOR X7 rugged tablet computers from DRS Tactical Systems Inc. in Melbourne, Fla., are now certified to connect to the Verizon Wireless cell phone network, DRS Tactical officials say. The two rugged tablets use the Gobi 2000 WWAN mobile broadband radio to connect users to several wireless networks.
Last month DRS Tactical's ARMOR X10gx rugged tablet earned approval to connect to the Sprint3G cell phone network. The ARMOR X10gx and X7 also offer Bluetooth wireless, integrated GPS, and 802.11 a/g/n WiFi.
The mobile tablet computers are for mission-critical tasks that require connecting to the Internet via cell phone networks in all weather conditions. DRS has certified the tablets to MIL-STD-810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, shock, and drops.
The ARMOR X10gx weighs 4.7 pounds and resists the effects of dust, humidity, and immersion in water as deep as three feet. It also has a docking system, Intel Core2 Duo processor, and a 64-to-160-gigabyte solid-state hard drive.
The ARMOR X 7 rugged compact tablet weighs 2.8 pounds, has a 7-inch sunlight-readable touchscreen display, can operate in all-weather operations, an Intel Atom processor N450, 40- or 80-gigabyte m-SATA solid state drive, and Windows 7 Professional software.
