DT Research Announces First Sleek Ultra-Rugged 2-in-1 Tablet Feature Rich with Elegant Fully-Integrated Design


SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – July 18, 2016) – DT Research, the leading designer and manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, today announced new 2-in-1 Ultra Rugged Tablets for its DT301 and DT311 series, which are built to withstand extreme outdoor environments with customizable options built into a slim, lightweight design that is also well-suited for the office. These new ultra-rugged tablets deliver indoor-outdoor versatility with water-resistant detachable keyboards, internal hot-swappable batteries, and advanced hardware-software security with two Full HD screen size options to maximize use in multiple settings.

“Mobile tablets are fast becoming the ‘go to’ computing device for the military and other field jobs,” said Daw Tsai Sc.D., president of DT Research. “But as the use of mobile tablets has risen, we saw that users need the flexibility to use tablets in a variety of settings. Our new 2-in-1 ultra-rugged tablets can dynamically adapt to indoor and outdoor use, while remaining light and durable with our signature fully-integrated design. These 2-in-1 tablets continue to demonstrate our dedication to delivering highly reliable computing solutions, which require built-in features, not attachments that can easily break, stop working, get lost or stolen.”

DT Research’s Ultra Rugged Tablets have been well-received by many organizations, including the U.S. Army Reserve, which is expanding use of the DT311H rugged tablets into other army facilities to support training missions and other logistics. This marks the second Army Reserve contract for Rugged Tablets that DT Research has been awarded this year.

DT Research’s ultra-rugged 2-in-1 tablets include both software and hardware security features.

DT Research combines the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise software security with its proprietary hardware security, such as media sanitization option that supports both NSA and USA-AF/Navy/Army standards. Hardware security options also include camera privacy mode, instant blackout, as well as automatic Bluetooth, RFID and WiFi disable functions that can be pre-configured to turn off all radio capabilities under certain conditions.
