Getac, the rugged device manufacturer, has released the V110 computer which can be used as a conventional notebook or as a tablet.
The V110-G2 incorporates Intel’s fifth-generation Broadwell technology to improve productivity and optimise power consumption. This new processing power, allied with rugged build, will enable the units to deliver exceptional computing performance in the harshest of working environments, says the company.
Peter Molyneux, President, Getac UK, says the V110-G2 re-affirms Getac’s commitment to delivering the latest technology to those who need power and performance in critical conditions. “Customers depend on Getac devices to provide them with the greatest level of performance in all conditions – the V110-G2 offers increased performance for our customers’ business.”
Better productivity is a key feature among customers when it comes to selecting mobile devices – 78 per cent of respondents in the Enterprise Mobility Exchange Rugged Mobile Technology Report (March 2015) said it is a critical factor in their device procurement process. Molyneux adds: “We know that greater productivity is important to our customers, and this is reflected in this product upgrade.”
The V110-G2 can be specified with either an Intel Core i5-5200U (2.2GHz) or i7-5500U (2.4GHz) vPro processor, both with Turbo Boost. It comes with 4GB RAM expandable to 8GB, and Windows 7 or 8.1 Pro or 10 operating system.
The full-size, waterproof membrane keyboard has 88 standard-sized, island-style independent keys and a LED backlight that allows user to type in the dimmest conditions.
The V110’s dual batteries are 66% smaller and 57% lighter than earlier models and hot-swappable dual-battery design enables you to remove one of the two rechargeable batteries and replace it with a fresh battery without ever shutting down apps or your Windows OS.
Communications include the latest superfast 802.11ac WiFi, dedicated GPS and 3D antennae.
At 1.98kg and 34mm thin, the V110-G2 is 27% lighter and 30% thinner than the previous generation, but there has been no sacrificed on ruggedness – it is certified to MIL-STD 810G IP65 and ANSI and it can handle temperatures from minus 20 deg C to plus 60 deg C.
