Durabook R11 rugged tablets bundled for public safety

GammaTech Computer Corp. has developed four commercial-off-the-shelf configurations of its Durabook R11 tablets to meet the different needs of public safety professionals. 

The R11 tablet with a 11.6" widescreen display weighs 2.73 pounds and is the thinnest rugged tablet in its class, the company said. It can be mounted in a vehicle running mobile dispatch and mapping applications or used outside collecting field data, all the while maintaining real-time remote communications.

"Our bundled R11 tablet configurations help take the guess work out of choosing the right product setup, while still providing an array of features and options for exact-fit customization," said Jen Chen, GammaTech president. "Certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD- 461F and IP65 specifications, bundled R11 tablet configurations are a perfect match to meet public safety's demanding requirements to perform 24x7 in daily operations, regardless of location or environmental condition."
