When people pay a small fortune for a device they do their best to keep it away from any kind of danger. But what can we do when we travel, or work at a place where there is a risk to damage our precious handsets?
I think many of us would prefer to buy a handset that doesn’t sport super features, but is rugged and durable. As a result, we usually get a hard-to-break, but unsightly device with many shortcomings. I say unsightly, because rugged handsets are usually bulky, heavy and uncomfortable, and they lack many required features — otherwise their price will rise.
However, there is a company that decided to launch a rugged Android tablet with many awesome features. Meet the hero of the day after the break.
Japanese Fujitsu strengthens its cooperation with Google and is going to release a rugged tablet called the Fujitsu Arrows Tab. It will be a really cool device able to compete even with such high-end tablets as the Motorola Xoom and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. If you doubt, look at the list of its specs:
- Dimensions: 262×181 x11.5 mm
- Weight: 599g
- Screen: 10-inch
- Processor: 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core processor
- Memory: 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage
- Cameras: 5MP one on the back and 1.3MP snapper on the front
- Other features: Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, b/g/n WiFi, GPS, micro USB, micro SD card reader, a micro SIM card slot, TV tuner.
As you see its features are rather attractive, but I guess the tablet will become popular not for them, but for the fact it is WATERPROOF. Do you know many waterproof tablets in the market? I haven’t heard of any.
Unfortunately, it will be launched in Japan and most likely won’t appear in other countries. But I hope other manufacturers will take the example of the Fujitsu Arrows Tab and bring this experience to the U.S. and Europe, too.
