22 Nov 2022 - Arkadiusz Krużycki

A rugged tablet is a device that must prove itself in extreme conditions such as production halls or warehouses, where it can be exposed not only to extreme temperatures or humidity, but above all to drops from great heights. And it is the increase in these parameters that provides an opportunity for the manufacturer of AutoID equipment to refresh its product offer.

Zebra, a renowned and important manufacturer in the world, has decided this time to interest its customers in a full range of modern rugged tablets. A rugged tablet fundamentally differs from a consumer tablet in its greater resistance to drops.

The Gorilla display is resistant to cracks and scratches. It is also designed to operate in different temperatures and varying weather conditions, such as rain or snow. Flooding with a large amount of water or other liquids also cannot disturb the operation of this device. Such a rugged tablet is available with both Android 11 and Windows 10 Pro.
