The eo i7300 has such an innovative design that is great for any user. Need more USB ports, extended battery life or programmable buttons just click on one of the modules in to place and your ready to go. I was very impressed with simplicity and functionality of the design.

g840XT 8.4" Rugged Tablet

The rugged tablet is just what it sounds like. Perfect for the warehouse industry or distributors. The interesting thing about it is the weight. Not many rugged tablets are lightweight, but the g840XT is. It is still military compliant though and durable with its magnesium alloy case.

Remember though the full mil-spec g840XT is designed for those who require mobility, durability and advanced wireless functionality. It is a favorite of mine though because its lightweight and can withstand pretty much anything. Gail Levy made me drop it a few times during our meeting and of course there was no damage. It will be available in mid-January, but no word on pricing yet.

Sahara Slate PC i440D / i440T

The upgraded processor and SSD options will put the Sahara in the same category as some of the standard Tablet PCs on the market. TabletKiosk offers a variety of accessories for it as well including a nice, portable keyboard.

I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these tablet review units, so we can bring you a complete review, which should happen soon. I know the Sahara i440D was popular the first time I reviewed it, so I can’t imagine how well the response will be especially with the new battery options and upgraded processor. The new eo i7300 UMPC is a big interest as well. For more information check out TabletKiosk’s website.
