Handheld Group has announced the launch of the new version of its popular Algiz 7 rugged tablet computer. The updated Algiz 7 is considerably faster than its predecessor, with better storage capacity, improved security and quicker communication capabilities.

According to the announcement, the ultra-rugged Algiz 7 tablet PC is small, light and fast, with multiple connectivity options and a wide range of functions, ideal for field workers demanding a super-durable product that is tough and powerful, yet light and easy to work with. The Algiz 7 meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibrations, drops and extreme temperatures, and with its IP65 rating it keeps dust and water out as well.

  • A fast and powerful N2600 1.6 GHz Dual-Core Intel ATOM processor.
  • More memory, with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM.
  • Better storage, with a 128GB SSD SATA II with recovery partition.
  • Two full mPCIe slots for improved flexibility.
  • Ethernet 10/100/1000 (Gigabit).
  • Added data security with TPM chipset board (chip 1.2).
  • An updated version of the wireless Gobi 3000 technology for higher communications speed.
  • A 5-megapixel camera.
  • Antenna diversity (two antennas) for improved coverage.

“We’ve made significant improvements to the new Algiz 7,” said Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. “Better storage, a much faster processor, improved security, a better camera and better communications are some enhancements – and we’ve kept the price point the same as for the previous version of the Algiz 7. This product should remain the tablet of choice for anyone looking for portable, professional field performance.”

The Algiz 7 weighs 1.1 kilograms and has a 7-inch widescreen touch display that features the new and unique MaxView technology, providing brightness in outdoor conditions — even direct sunlight. It runs the state-of-the-art Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate operating system. GPS navigation functionality is fully built in.

The Algiz 7 is specifically developed for use in tough environments in industries such as mining, geomatics, logistics, forestry, public transportation, construction, utilities, maintenance, military and security.

    Where is the promised Better Sunlight readable screen we so desperately need in and Australia? High sunlight readable screen should be Standard. Companies designing tablets in the Northern Hemisphere have no idea how bright and how strong the UV is here –especially in Western Australia where we have so many sunny days. When testing new Code on ALGIZ7 I have to wait until late afternoon to read screen–unacceptable to me.

      Northern Hemisphere here, (Florida, USA) – same problems.I tend to look for greyscale or monchrome type screens on all our equipment which seems to helpl alittle.
