Chandler, Arizona (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
Group Mobile, well known for carrying the top brands in rugged laptops, rugged tablet PCs, rugged SmartPhones, and rugged handheld computers has recently extended its product offerings to include the new Xplore Bobcat. The Bobcat is a fully rugged Windows tablet boasting a comprehensive collection of standardized interfaces, an extensive array of options through its proprietary Xpansion Port, and a sleek lightweight design.
The Bobcat operates Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Pro operating systems and continues to build upon Xplore’s reputation for fully rugged durability with a MIL-STD 810G certification and IP65 rating. The Bobcat Windows tablet is an ideal choice for a variety of industries including manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, utilities, and telco.
The Bobcat tablet is powered by an Intel Quad Core Processor, 1.91GHz CPU speed, 4GB of DDR3L 1333 RAM, 128GB SSD, and 8 hours of battery life with an option to extend to a 14 hour dual-battery pack, boosting productivity for prolonged deployments. A direct bonded IPS screen, 500nits of luminance and an 800-to-1 contrast ratio makes the Bobcat rugged tablet display ideal for outdoor readability and a 10-finger multi-touch screen provides customers with ease-of-use and touch optimization.
“Our goal in developing the Bobcat is to provide our customers with a fully rugged, yet versatile, device that can easily transition across a variety of business applications,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies.”
The Bobcat tablet offers a robust suite of standard inputs and outputs that make the transition across different business applications as seamless as possible. Standard features on the rugged tablet include two full-sized USB 3.0s, Micro SDXC, Micro SIM, Micro HDMI-Out, RJ-45 Ethernet, GPS engine, and a true serial port connection. With this comprehensive selection of ports, customers are not forced to compromise on port selections upon purchase.
Xplore has developed a suite of optional features designed to optimize the Bobcat for specific industries. Xplore’s proprietary Xpansion Port includes integration options such as a 1D/2D barcode scanner, common access card (CAC) reader, and near-field communications (NFC) reader. Warehousing and distribution businesses can consolidate operations and reduce equipment costs with the device’s barcode scanner or NFC reader capabilities, and military and government entities can benefit from increased security with the CAC reader.
“Our customers have come to expect a superior level of durability from Xplore rugged tablets, and the Bobcat is no exception to that standard,” said Stephanie Kreitner, executive vice president for Group Mobile. “The Bobcat offers remarkable functionality, a lightweight design, and outstanding screen visibility.”
