Meet Getac Z710, the £709 7in tough guy tablet

Meet Getac Z710, the £709 7in tough guy tabletThe tough tablet concept isn’t exactly anything new. For example, we’ve scribbled about the Panasonic Toughpad A1, and – more recently – the Fujitsu Stylistic M532.

However, this latest chap reckons he’s the toughest of all. The Chuck Norris of the tablet world, if you will. Meet the Getac Z710, baby.

Let’s get down to brass tacks. Getac Z710 specs include a 7in display (1024 x 600) with Gorilla Glass and Getac’s “sunlight readable” Quadraclear technology. Heck, you can even use the tablet with gloves on.

Other Getac Z710 specs include an OMAP 4430 dual-core 1GHz processor, 5MP rear camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, 16GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), and Gingerbread (Android 2.3) on OS duties.

Slightly less common specs include a 360-degree barcode reader, with a scanning distance of up to 23cm.

The Getac Z710 is also the first rugged tablet to offer drop protection from a height of six feet, and will happily function at temperatures from -20 to 50°C. No specific mention of being waterproof, but one of the pics shows it taking a shower.

How much? Pocket-lint has been told the Getac Z710 will sell for £709.

It seems the thing was designed for cold cold cold areas. A six foot drop would likely end in snow. So, my guess is 'water-proof'/splashproof, indeed
