SYDNEY, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Getac Technology Corporation today announced the launch of a new fully rugged 10″ tablet — the E110 — offering field users one of the lightest and longest running rugged devices on the market.
The E110 will be distributed by Synnex Australia Pty Ltd after the two companies announced a distribution agreement earlier this month.
Designed specifically for operators working in the public safety, transport, logistics and utility sectors, the touch screen device includes a 10.1 inch (1366 x 768) HD sunlight-readable display. The thin and light (1.6kg / 3.52lbs) unit also offers Lifesupport(TM) hot-swappable battery operation to extend operating time out in the field.
James Hwang, President of Getac, says the device will allow operators to work in the field for extended periods while maintaining seamless connectivity to central operations:
“The E110 is one of the most versatile devices in the Getac range — able to perform data capture operations in even the toughest of conditions,” Mr Hwang says.
The device comes with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity as standard and offers users the ability to add contactless high-frequency RFID and smart card readers, a 3MP auto-focus camera, and GPS SiRFstarIV(TM).
Mr Hwang says the E110 includes Getac’s QuadraClear(TM) screen technology, offering a better contrast ratio and a wider viewing angle than its nearest competitors. The higher colour saturation and a viewing angle of more than 160 degrees ensure excellent visibility out in the field and the device is particularly suited to operators who require an in-vehicle solution.
“The E110 delivers a world-class in-vehicle solution because of its compact, quick release docking station, its multi-touch screen and its programmable function key, making it an excellent navigation and communication device for field-based staff,” comments Andrew Yu, Product Manager of Getac, from Synnex Australia.
The unit’s programmable function key can be configured to suit individual operational requirements. The hot-swappable battery ability means that the device will remain operational for 180 seconds whilst users change the battery. This allows the unit’s working hours to be extended without users having to switch off the device and without affecting productivity.
Getac’s unique, fanless design also provides users with a more powerful and reliable device in harsh conditions, as the heat from the CPU is dispersed evenly to prevent the processor overheating and avoid a reduction in performance.
“Getac has built this device to ensure that operators have tablet technology that allows them to maximise their productivity even in the most demanding environments,” Mr Yu says.
The unit is IP65 and MIL-STD-810G rated, with an ability to survive three feet drops, vibrations, and capacity to work in temperatures from -21 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius. The E110 also includes an Intel(R) Atom(TM) N2800 1.86 GHz CPU and 64GB SSD storage.
“We are proud to offer customers a unique opportunity to view and feel this new device, together with other Getac ranges, at Synnex Alliance Roadshow across Australia,” Mr Yu adds.
The E110 is showcasing in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne over July and August. The next Synnex Alliance 2012 takes place during 4pm – 8pm at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, 25th July, follows by Sydney Showground, 8th August and ends at the Melbourne Olympic Park, 22nd August, 2012.
