Make it easy for your customers in the challenging world of BYOD and CYOD with Maxatec’s range of rugged IP-rated and budget-friendly Android tablets and smartphones, which are more efficient and secure than consumer grade devices that need additional ruggedizing.

The Xplore DT-07 is a superb 7-inch tablet, with its rugged design and 1.2GHz quad core processor. It provides three modes of wireless connectivity: Bluetooth, WiFi and 3.75G (optional). The built-in security ensures that you can lock down the tablet so that the user can’t install software or tamper with corporate data and yet retain full personal use if desired. Smart power management gives long working hours without the need to recharge.

The Seals TS3 answers the need for a user-friendly Android smartphone that is both tough and weatherproof (IP-68 and MIL-810G) and yet costs no more than the average mid-range consumer mobile. It features everything the user expects to see in a contemporary smartphone – and more:

3.5-inch touchscreen, expandable memory up to 32GB, Bluetooth and WiFi and a lithium battery that provides long standby and talk time of between 20 and 26 hours.
