Getac ZX70
This new 7-inch Android tablet for use in the field comes with Marshmallow on board and has been certified to comply with the IP67 and MIL-STD 810G standards for protection from water submersion and extreme conditions.
Codrut Nistor,

Getac is not as popular as other brands that are involved in the tablet market, but they have been around, and the new ZX70 is not their first rugged slate. This new 7-inch slate was designed "to meet the growing needs of mobile transportation and field service professionals," and it can be easily used with one hand "in remote and challenging environments."

Getac ZX70 comes with a 580-nit ultra-bright IPS touchscreen that uses the proprietary LumiBond 2.0 technology to create a durable and readable panel by bonding the display glass and the touch panel using an optically clear resin. The list of connectivity features and options is quite rich, including 4G LTE and GPS, 1D/2D barcode reader, WiFi, as well as NFC/RFID.

In addition to the above, the official press release also mentions 2 GB of internal storage expandable to 4 GB, a microSD slot, multiple certifications for use in extreme conditions, including potentially explosive atmosphere (ATEX and IECEx 2/22, both optional).

This slate comes with a three-year full warranty that covers even accidental damage. There is no information about pricing and availability at this time, but since these are tablets that usually end up purchased by companies in large batches, we expect the pricing and delivery options to be negotiable.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
