Xplore’s collaboration with their customers: road warriors, mobile field service workers, police, fire/EMS responders, and the military and business sectors, have culminated in the creation of a rugged Tablet PC product line, the iX104.  The Centrino technology is combined with Xplore’s rugged designs, providing the ultimate in ruggedness, dependability and performance. 
The iX104C2 with AllVue Sunlight Readable Technology, Xplore’s latest innovation, will be demonstrated at the ESRI Conference.  This rugged tablet can be viewed in ALL lighting conditions – indoors, outside and even in direct sunlight while providing the ultimate in ruggedness.
Road warriors need no longer worry about the fragility of the computers on which they depend.  No more concerns about computers surviving airports – loading and handling; temperature extremes; heavy blows, vehicle crashes, spillage, rain and snow storms, dust and virtually any punishment imaginable.  Xplore’s rugged Tablet PCs have been engineered, 3rd party tested and specififed to Military Standards for operation in extreme conditions.  This includes 4′ drops to concrete, extreme temperature and humidity variations, blowing rain and dust  – and constant vibration.
Xplore’s iX104 Renegade is a streamlined, affordable Tablet PC that serves an expanding underserved Tablet PC market – the businessman/mobile road warrior.  The Renegade provides an optimal blend of ruggedness, reliability and performance demanded by a growing population of enterprise and industrial customers.
The iX104 Renegade Dual Mode Tablet PC has the same advantages as the Renegade, but offers users both stylus and finger touch input in a single product.

Increment Software has released a new game for the Tablet PC

It’s fun to see new software come to market, especially games, designed for hte Tablet PC interface. Increment Software has released a new game, Slate Labyrinth, for $19.95 with a free demo.

The concept itself, though incredibly inventive, is surprisingly simple. There is a maze with water exquisitely and elegantly flowing through it. Like all mazes, there is a start and a finish. The water will continue to flow in all directions stopping only for the walls of the maze, and for any lines or shapes that you draw. Your objective is to make sure that the water reaches the goal. But there’s a catch; in each level you are given a pre-set quota – the maximum number of litres that you may use. If you manage to reach the goal without using more litres of water than your quota permits, then you win and may advance to the next level. When you first start Slate Labyrinth, you will be treated to a voice-accompanied Tutorial. Although this stunning session will teach you how to play, you will still have to practice certain techniques if you want to accomplish some of the later challenges.
