The RangerX is not only fully rugged, but also offers a wide range of multifaceted capabilities to adapt to the needs of enterprise, field service and data collection workers facing various elements.

Chandler, Arizona (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

Group Mobile, well known for carrying the top brands in rugged laptops, rugged tablet PCs, rugged smart phones, and rugged handheld computers has recently extended its product offerings to include the new Xplore RangerX. The RangerX is Xplore's first fully rugged Android tablet. The lightweight tablet has the largest storage capacity on the market, a magnificent outdoor-viewable display, and is certified as being fully rugged, holding both IP65 and MIL-STD-810G ratings.

"With more than 15 years of testing, research and development, Xplore has demonstrated the ability to bring proven technology to the rugged space," said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies. "We’re adding to that legacy with the RangerX, the most durable Android tablet available."

The 10.1 inch RangerX rugged Android tablet is perfect for field service applications in industries such as utilities, energy, warehousing, logistics, transportation, military, and public safety. The RangerX is the only rugged Android tablet to provide an optional integrated module with Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI-in connections, making it ideal for satellite, cable, broadband, and telecommunication providers.

"Our customers in the carrier space want to be able to reduce the number of tools their field service workers need to get the job done," added Holleran. "With the capability provided by the optional HDMI-in and Gigabit Ethernet, not only do they have the perfect tool for work-order management, but they can also validate and diagnose installation or service issues on-site with one device."

The RangerX is merely 2.2 pounds, and looks and feels more like a modern tablet than a traditional rugged device. The RangerX rugged Android tablet has a battery life up to 10 hours to maximize time in the field and increase productivity. The tablet’s vibrant outdoor-viewable, multi-touch display allows for an easy transition from indoors to outdoors. In addition, the RangerX comes with a standard three-year warranty.

"The RangerX is not only fully rugged, but also offers a wide range of multifaceted capabilities to adapt to the needs of enterprise, field service and data collection workers facing various elements," Philip S. Sassower, chief executive officer and chairman of the board for Xplore Technologies, said. "The new RangerX highlights our commitment to expand our product offerings in order to meet specialized customer needs."

— Rugged for any Extreme Environment: Waterproof and dustproof (IP65) and designed to survive real world conditions (MIL-STD-810G)

— Lightweight Platform: 2.2 pounds with a 10-hour battery life

— Warehousing, Logistics, etc.: Integrated RFID and NFC capabilities come standard in the RangerX, increasing operational efficiency and accuracy in distribution centers, warehousing, logistics, and transportation industries. In addition, the RangerX is compatible with all major Bluetooth and USB barcode scanners.

— Military: The common access card (CAC) reader option and FIPS 140-2 compliancy provides the most secure rugged experience for government and military operations.
