With interest in tablet computers on the rise in just about every vertical market, DAP Technologies launched its MT1010 rugged tablet. The lightweight tablet is a direct response to enterprise demands for a Windows operating system that integrates into existing networks, rugged construction built to survive heavy use in challenging environments, a large touchscreen that supports both handheld and vehicle-mounted use, and plenty of I/O ports for connecting to multiple peripherals.
The enterprise-friendly MT1010 features a 10.1-inch, sunlight-viewable multi-touch capacitive display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Compatible with Windows 8, the MT1010 ships with a Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating system for integration into most enterprise environments.
Despite its large screen size, rugged magnesium-alloy construction, and multiple I/O ports — including USB 2.0, mini USB 2.0, Ethernet, serial and HDMI ports — the tablet weighs less than 3 lbs. and is less than an inch thick. Expansion via a dock and an expansion connector provide the most I/O available in a tablet, as well as easy integration with legacy peripherals.
Sealed to IP65 and certified for a 6-foot drop, the rugged tablet can be used confidently in challenging environments, while extending its use by years.
As with most DAP products, the MT1010 is designed to future-proof a company's investment with a backpack design that allows for expansion.
Because reliable mobile communications are a requirement for business, standard communications features include WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0. Customers can also choose the optional Gobi 3000 WWAN embedded module, which allows the tablet to connect to virtually any carrier network.
Equipped with GPS, a gyroscope, an accelerometer and compass, the MT1010 is ideal for mapping applications, telemetry and location-based service functions.
The MT1010 also includes 1D/2D barcode scanner and standard dual autofocus cameras. With a 5 MP back-facing camera with flash and a 2 MP front-facing camera, the tablet is ready for video conferencing or document scanning.
The MT1010 includes a 64 GB solid state drive, with options for 128 GB, and runs on an Intel N2600 dual core 1.6 GHz processor.
