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

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Jul 2012, 09:06

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...

Could be cool, if they can keep it relatively thin while making it tough as nails.

Android device will put Apple into dust. The whole world start to produce Android, but not iOS device, Why?

Maybe cause it is Apple alone that holds the giant iOS marketshare, while the reason why over 20 manufacturers use Android is it open source nature...? :/

It has TI OMAP 4460 so can it be updated to 4.1 easily?

The back looks cool. It can also double as a portable table!

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.
