Furthermore, manufactured and certified to MIL-STD-810F/G, the device  can withstand extremes in temperature, vibration, shock, and drops to the ground. Similarly, as an ATEX-certified unit, it can also be used in explosive atmospheres while its IP 67 sealing rating means it is fully sealed against dust and can meet water immersion to a depth of 1m for 30 minutes.

A Windows 7 device, the tablet is dubbed ‘tenth generation’, Mark Dale-Lave Director of Mobexx explains, “The ARMOR™ X10gx is recognised as the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of 10-inch tablet PCs. It is a tenth-generation device that is top of its class.”

It provides all the computing power needed for almost any type of mobile application and is ideally suited for the most rugged, demanding environments. We are very pleased to be able to offer this product, particularly as it can be readily configured for customer computing needs, while custom applications can be satisfied through its unique expansion bay.”

Other benefits include an Intel Core2 Duo processor, 32GB solid-state hard drive, hot-swappable batteries and connectivity courtesy of Gobi® WWAN mobile broadband radio. And to combat security concerns, the tablet can be protected using a password or with the biometric fingerprint reader.
