Handheld launches 7-inch tablet computer

Features Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor and Windows 7 Professional operating system

By CBR Staff Writer

Handheld has introduced a new 7-inch widescreen Algiz 7 rugged tablet computer, which runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional operating system and features an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor with 64GB solid state hard drive and 2GB of DDR2 RAM.

The company said that the new Algiz 7 comes standard with bluetooth, WLAN and GPS as well as a built-in 2-megapixel camera with LED light. It is is ready for Gobi 2000 technology and has built in antennas, and optional 3G cellular capabilities for GSM/UMTS/EVDO data transmission.

The tablet computer is incorporated with the new outdoor view MaxView screen technology; and hot-swappable 2400 mAh dual battery pack, which lets changing batteries without shutting down. It weighs 2.4lbs and is rated IP65 and meets MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibration, drops and extreme temperatures.

Dale Kyle, president of Handheld US, said: The Algiz 7, which is available exclusively from Handheld, meets the combination requested so often – a rugged device with a larger screen than a handheld, but without the bulk of the larger tablets. Offering it at a compelling price makes it all the more attainable.
