Archos Helps Paris-Based Logic Instrument In Releasing New Rugged And Enterprise Android Devices

January 30, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

We just got word earlier this morning that Archos was releasing a couple new tablets which recently passed their Bluetooth SIG certs, and may also be working on two more tablets that have yet to be announced with no details yet revealed either. Apparently Archosis doing more than just working on their own products though, as they’re reportedly helping a Paris-based company called Logic Instruments release a line of products that are aimed at the Enterprise and Industrial and Defense markets. The new Enterprise devices will obviously be geared towards companies that are looking for a secure solution to providing employees with mobile computing, and the industrial devices will have a rugged build and design so as to stay protected in those tougher lines of work.

The Fieldbook E1 and Fieldbook H1 will be Logic Instruments line of devices for the Industrial and Defense customers, both which sport rugged design and tough outer build casing so as to limit damage to a minimum as people who work in those fields are usually harder on their devices. The Fieldbook E1 is going to be a rugged 10.1 inch tablet, and the H1 will be the ruggedly designed smartphone. The H1 has tempered glass and a pretty decent battery with 3,500mAh of juice, which is supposed to last its users a full two days on a charge. That of course will remain to be seen but that isn’t too hard of a task if you manage your phone’s capabilities correctly. The E1, Logic Instruments Tough tablet, is said to be able to withstand drops from up to 6ft., so if you’re holding it in your hands and you happen to drop it, it should be ok so long as it only falls that short distance. If you happen to drop it from the third floor of an unfinished skyscraper though, it probably won’t come out of that incident too good.

As far as the new Enterprise devices go, Logic Instruments will be releasing the Logic 101 XS2 which is the tablet, and the Logic 50 Helium 4G which is the smartphone. The Logic 101 also has a 10.1 inch display, while the Logic 50 carries a 5 inch display, with LTE connectivity and a dual-core processor. Both these devices look to be previous offerings from Archos themselves, but now rebranded with the Logic Instruments name. We should see these new lines of devices unveiled at MWC next month as Logic Instruments is telling us, but that conference is still a whole month away and something is still capable of changing between now and then. You can check out more about these upcoming devices from Archos and Logic Instruments at the Logic Instruments website.
