DRS Technologies has introduced three new ARMOR tablet models: a slimmed-down Windows 7-based X7, a similar tablet running Android OS, and a convertible Windows 7 tablet.
The ARMOR X7et is a Windows-based tablet that will be thinner than its predecessor, weighing in at 1.5lbs, and it will offer six hours of battery life. It will feature an Intel Atom Z670 processor and will run Windows 7 Professional. The ARMOR X7ad is a similar model, except it will run the Android Honeycomb OS (3.2) and will weigh in at 1.2lbs. It will have eight hours of battery life and will have a 1.0GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.
Both tablets will sport a 7-inch screen with multi-touch support. Both will also be certified to MIL-STD 810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, as well as shock, and will have an IP65 rating.
The ARMOR X12kb is said to be the lightest ruggedized convertible tablet in the market today, weighing in at 5.5lbs. It will feature a 12.1-inch swivel touchscreen that incorporates polarized LCD glass and anti-reflective technology, making it easier to see in the sun. The tablet will also feature an Intel Core i5-560UMCPU processor and will operate on Microsoft Windows 7 Professional.
All of the devices mentioned above will come with Gobi Wireless Broadband, integrated GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
Pricing and release dates have not been announced by DRS Technologies.
