Casio enters the tough tablet game with rugged Android ICS 10-inchers

The company adds a certain twist to the rules, though, as its Casio V-T500-GE and V-T500-E are more rugged than usual, with an IPR 54 rating, meaning they won't break if you drop them from about a three feet height, and won't stop functioning if they get splashed with water or operated in dusty environments.
The tough brethren are encased in rubber, will be running Android Ice Cream Sandwich on their 10" displays, powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP4460 processor, with an NFC chip thrown in for a good measure. A large capacity battery will be providing the juice, and it will be user-swappable for extending the working hours.
Pricing and availability for the two rugged Casio slates are so far the big unknowns, as well as the exact differences between the V-T500-GE and V-T500-E models.

To be honest I'm surprised that it took this long considering Casio is known to put out these type of mil-spec products. Panasonic will probably wait for Windows 8 or RT to put out their own mil-spec tablet.
