Casio Debuts New Series of Rugged Business Tablets

By Gerard Longo, Assistant Editor — August 01, 2012

Casio's new series of rugged business tablets have been built around a "smart and tough" concept that the company believes will be relied upon for their durability and dependability across various industries.

The series of four tablets - the V-T500-GE, V-T500-E, V-N500-GE and V-N500-E models - are all dust and splash-proof and are made to survive drops of over three feet. The physical durability of the tablets, though, isn’t the only thing tough about them; the tablets’ security features include an NFC reader and writer able to authenticate user login using a non-contact IC card, as well as a Secure Access Module (SAM) slot for situations that require the highest levels of security.

Maneuverability, Versatility In Addition to Power

The new Casio tablets balance modern and rugged technology, first by running the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. Each also comes with an OMAP 1.5GHz dual core processor and 5.0 megapixel camera, and the 10.1 inch screen of the devices offer multi-finger touch control and digitizer pen input, allowing users a couple of options when it comes to device navigation.

The screen also simplifies navigation and the mobility of the tablets by being flexible to different lighting conditions, as all four models feature a screen that is readable in both indoor and outdoor environments. Mobility is also improved by the battery life of the devices; the replaceable, rechargeable battery is said by Casio to allow for “hours” of use and easy replacement when the battery starts to run out of power.
