Roper Mobile Technology announced the launch of the much-awaited Duros Rugged Tablet PC, which is a fourth generation, powerful Windows XP-based tablet PC.
The best feature of Duros Rugged Tablet PC is that it is sealed to IP-65 levels- for dust and water ingress and manufactured according to MILSPEC 810F specifications.
Roper Mobile Technology is a provider of fully rugged, highly customizable computer solutions for challenging environments. Roper Mobile Technology is wholly-owned subsidiary of Roper Industries. The Company’s full line of rugged mobile computing solutions includes lightweight handhelds, Tablets, Ultra Mobile PCs and fixed mount computers.

Duros Rugged Tablet PC is built in such a way that it can be used anywhere. It is equipped with an 8.4-inch brilliant sunlight viewable, SVGA resistive touch screen and an AMD Geode LX 800 Processor (News - Alert) or Intel Celeron M 1.0 GHz. It incorporates 1 GB memory and up to 120GB storage in which 64GB accounts to solid-state hard-drive. It features hot swappable battery which diminishes downtime and extends battery life.
Duros Rugged Tablet PC is also equipped with integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and optional built-in GPS for flexible communication. They can be used for extremely remote or harsh field applications, such as mining, construction, utilities, public safety or the military.
“The Duros Tablet PC is a key offering in Roper Mobile’s growing rugged portfolio. Unlike a laptop, the Duros’ versatile and convenient form factor was designed around requirements for our customers who carry their computers into highly variable environments,” said Eric Miller, Vice President at Roper Mobile Technology, in the press release, “These customers demand excellence and reliability and the Duros was designed to meet these needs.”
Roper Mobile Technology has over 35 years of combined experience, with the collaboration between DAP Technologies, LTD, JLT Mobile Computers, Inc. and Black Diamond Advanced Technology.
