The California-based manufacturer of rugged laptops and tablets, Getac, has introduced a new slate PC, dubbed as the E110. Apparently, the device is aimed at field workers and those employed in the industrial, and law enforcement sectors.

Housed in a rugged magnesium alloy case, the E110 meets the MIL-STD-810G military-standard testing specifications and has an IP65 rating, making the product resistant to water, dust, vibration, drop-related damage and extreme temperatures.

Getac’s latest tablet comes equipped with a Cedar Trail Intel Atom N2800 system on a chip. The processor incorporates two physical cores (four threads) operating at a frequency of 1.86GHz and the Intel GMA 3650 integrated graphics card. Furthermore, the E110 sports a 10.1-inch QuadraClear bright (750nit) sunlight readable panel with a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels. The company also claims the multitouch-enabled screen is resistive (meaning it uses a pressure sensor to operate) and that makes it easier for professionals working with gloves to utilize the device.

Running on a Windows 7 Professional operating system, the fully rugged slate computer houses 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 64GB solid-state drive. In addition, the E110 offers one programmable and two dedicated (Power, Menu) buttons, an optional 3MP camera for shooting pictures/video, a couple of USB 2.0 ports, optional SD card reader and an RS-232 port.

Connectivity-wise, users are provided with Ethernet LAN, Intel Centrino Advance-N 6205 802.11 a/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 radios complemented by optional GPS and Gobi 3000 mobile broadband. In terms of security, the device reportedly features a SmartCard reader slot, Kensington lock and support for TPM (Trusted Platform Module) version 1.2.   

Measuring 1.59-inch at its thickest point, the E110 weighs 3.46lbs with the built-in 5200mAh battery that has an autonomy period of up to 5 hours after a single charge.

Battery life is an important factor when working in the field. According to Getac, this tablet comes with a hot-swappable battery technology called LifeSupport, which essentially lets users insert a charged battery without having to shut down the system.
