DRS Technologies, manufacturers of the Armor line of rugged tablets, has announced that it has managed to utilize the internal WWAN capabilities of two of its devices to offer data coverage on the Verizon Wireless network.
Both the Armor X10gx and the X7 will be available on the Verizon 3G network for new and existing customers.
The X10gx also recently gained access to the Sprint network, and the additional possibility of a connection over the Verizon network means the flagship of the Armor line will now give rugged users a choice.
The X10gx features a 10.4-inch screen, 4 GB RAM, a 64 GB SSD (with options up to 160 GB), and an IP67 rating (meaning it is dust proof and can be immersed into up to one meter of water). It is powered by an Intel Core2 Duo processor and features the Windows 7 operating system.
The X7 is the smaller (but by no means petite) option in the Armor line. A seven-inch, 2.8 lb, rugged Windows 7 tablet, the X7 offers 2 GB SDRAM, 40 or 80 GB of internal storage, and SD card slot, and an IP65 rating (meaning it is dust-proof and water resistant). It is powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor.
Both the X10gx and X7 are currently available directly from DRS Technologies.
