    New Getac Z710 Android Tablet Can Take a Thrashing and Dishes One Out to Your Wallet

    There is a new touch-spec Android tablet coming to the market soon. It's called the Getac Z710, and the company claims it is the "world's most compact and robust Android tablet". While that lofty claim may or may not be true, one thing is for sure... this tablet will give your wallet a pounding that will make it beg for a hospital. The non-3G version of the tablet will sell for $1499.99, and the 3G version goes for $1799.99. Ouch! Here's a quote with a description of the tablet to give you an idea of its capabilities,

    Equipped with a Gorilla Glass display and a rubberized shell casing that encompasses the entirety of the tablet, the Z710 is engineered to take some serious abuse. Although we probably wouldn't suggest using it as target practice, the Getac Z710 is a suitable tablet for harsh work environments.

    Measuring in at 8.5 x 5.6-inches with slightly more than one-inch in thickness, the 2-pound tablet isn't the most portable of tablets. But its ability to survive drops of up to six feet, its certified protection against dust and liquids as well as its ability to operate in extreme temperatures as low as -4F and high as 122F makes it one tough cookie.

    Another appealing aspect of the tablet for work environments is the company's LumiBond technology, allowing users wearing gloves to easily interact with the capacitive touch display. The Android 2.3 tablet is equipped with most standard tablet features including a front camera, a 5MP rear camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, barcode/RFID reader, Bluetooth and 3G availability.
    I don't know about you guys, but this seems severely over-priced, even for a tough-spec device. Not long ago, we shared that Fujitsu will soon be offering a tough-spec device for just $549.99, and the well-known and well-respected Panasonic Toughpad goes for $1299.99. It will be interesting to see if this Getac really is that much tougher than those other offerings. If anyone in the forums has familiarity with previous Getac products, please let us know what is so special about them.
