Getac this week introduced a new tablet, the Getac ZX70. While tablets in general are no longer the sellers they once were, this tablet looks to offer more than just a device that has a larger-than-smartphone display. As the Getac ZX70 is designed with durability in mind and can be used in multiple environments. As such the Getac ZX70 comes equipped with MIL-STD 810G certification, confirming that is it drop resistant, vibration resistant, and more. While an IP67 certification looks to protect the tablet from dust and submersion in water – up to a depth of about 1 meter, and for a duration of about 30 mins.
In terms of the rest of the core specs, the Getac ZX70 is a tablet which offers up a 7-inch display (which can be viewed in direct sunlight) along with a 1280 x 720 resolution. Inside, the Getac ZX70 packs in 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and is powered by an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor (clocking at 1.44 GHz). In terms of cameras, there is an 8-megapixel camera on the back of the device, along with another 8-megapixel camera on the front. In addition, this is a tablet which comes powered by a fairly significant 8,400 mAh battery, which should easily provide a decent return in terms of hours of usage. While the Android version in play is Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
With this being a tablet that is designed to be in used in less than ideal environments, it is also one which comes with the ability to directly connect to 3G and 4G LTE networks, in addition to your usual Wi-Fi compatibility. So regardless of whether there is a Wi-Fi connection nearby or not, this tablet will still be able to connect. This is also a tablet that is designed to be used in a one-handed mode for the situations which require it. While expandable storage is also included thanks to the employment of a microSD card slot. Making this a fairly well-equipped tablet for those needing one that is robust and yet capable. Unfortunately, Getac has yet to officially announce pricing and availability, although interested parties can register their interest through the company's website.
