    ASUS Reveals New Water-Proof Android Tablet Called 'The TOUGH'


    Asus recently revealed an up-coming Android tablet that we haven't really heard about previously. The 7-inch tablet will be called the ASUS TOUGH, and will be designed as a rugged-style, water-proof and dust-proof Honeycomb based Android Tablet. Initially it will be heading to the KDDI network in Japan, and there is no word if it will make it to any other markets. Here is a list of specs:
    • 7-Inch Screen with a resolution of 1280x800
    • Honeycomb 3.2
    • Water-Proof and Dust-Proof
    • Dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor
    • 16GB of built-in internal storage memory
    • 5 megapixel camera rear camera (no camera on the front)
    • EVDO, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS & WiMax

    It's interesting that it has WiMax support, so it is possible we could see it show up in the States for Sprint. Although this tablet looks a bit on the heavy and beefy side, the ability to use it outdoors or in the shower, make it kind of appealing. What do you guys think? Would you want this to come to the States?

    Here's a link to some additional pics of the device: Asus TOUGH Android Tablet Additional Pics

    Yes, the ability to surf and shower is the most pressing need for this.

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.

    water proof is an added feature I can understand isn't built into every device but dust proof, there is absolutely no excuse that every phone, computer, tablet is not already dust proof. If you have to advertise your product as dust proof, there is something wrong.

    I totally see the need for this. I don't know how many times I've tried to read on the toilet, and nearly dropped my phone or tablet in while pulling my pants down.

    Too bad there is no front camera. Was kinda looking forward to underwater Skype video calls.

    Waterproof and water resistant sometimes seems to get interchanged; I expect something that is waterproof to be able to function fully submerged under water while water resistant means I can have it under and umbrella as I walk in the rain and it will be fine... I am curious which of these applies to this device.
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    The only way to 'dustproof' is the same way you waterproof, by having a fully sealed case. Most devices dont do this due to the added expense of engineering something that is airtight but still is able to cool itself.

    If the Asus says waterproof, I am sure that is what it will be. Manufacturers are very cautious about the claim of waterproof, since if it is just water-resistant, they can have a large number of warranty claims if they call it waterproof.
