By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 22, 2012

DRS Technologies, Inc. has launched the ARMOR X7et and the ARMOR X7ad, new, thin, lightweight rugged tablets. The sleek, 7" multi-touch tablets allow field service workforces to choose between the fast-growing Android OS and the enterprise-friendly Microsoft Windows platform.

The ARMOR X7et is a Windows-based tablet that weighs just under 1.5 lbs and provides six hours of battery life. It features an Intel Atom Z670 processor and runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. Its Android counterpart, the ARMOR X7ad, weighs 1.3 lbs. and operates for up to eight hours. It features a NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1.0Ghz dual core processor and operates on Android v3.2. Both lightweight tablets feature a 7" outdoor-readable multi-touch screen display. They are certified to MIL-STD 810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, shock and four-foot drops and have an IP65 rating for ingress protection against dust and water.

Additionally, DRS is now offering a new convertible tablet, the ARMOR X12kb, the lightest convertible tablet in the marketplace that meets MIL-STD-810G. Weighing 5.5 lbs., it features a 12.1" sunlight-readable swivel touchscreen that incorporates polarized LCD glass and anti-reflective technology. The ARMOR X12kb offers the Intel Core i5-560UMCPU processor, runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, and features a spill-proof keyboard and touchpad. Additionally, the one-click stealth mode operation disables all emitting light and sounds, a feature that is designed for the unique applications of covert operations.

The three new ARMOR mobile computers include robust connectivity options including Gobi wireless broadband, integrated GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth wireless.
