Xplore XC6 Rugged Tablet: It Will Last Longer Than You


I’m usually good about keeping my gear out of harm’s way, but in the last month, I smashed two smartphone screens. I guess it caught up with me, which is probably one of the reasons why a ruggedized tablet makes sense, if you’re always taking yours out and about.

The Windows-based Xplore XC6 DMSR Rugged Tablet will resist drops of seven feet while it’s working, and can be submerged for up to 30 minutes in 3.3 feet of water. The tablet has multiple shock and drop resistances (military spec, no less). You can even operate it when it’s wet or when you’re wearing gloves. Here are just a few of its impressive environmental specs:

  • MIL-STD-810G-810G and IP67 Tested
  • Hazardous Location Certified
  • Submersion-Resistant, Dust-Tight

The sunlight-readable tablet has a magnesium alloy chassis which resists torsion, shear and impact damage. It comes with a Intel Core i5-4300U processor and has a 128GB SSD, which you can upgrade to 256GB. Battery life is rated a 8.5 hours.

Clearly, these tablets are designed for industrial and military usage, but if you’re prone to breaking your gadgets, you might want to look into one too.
