TEMPE, Ariz., Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DAP Technologies introduces its enterprise-ready, rugged M9700 Windows® tablet with 9.7-inch multi-touch display. The newest addition to DAP's tablet lineup offers a solution for enterprise customers who need the screen size and lightweight features of a consumer tablet, but also need a more rugged solution that runs a Windows operating system compatible with existing networks.
Just over 2 pounds (989 grams) and less than an inch thick (22 millimeters), the M9700 delivers lightweight mobility in a rugged tablet with a full 9.7-inch multi-touch display for pan and zoom functions.
"Consumer tablets have their appeal, but for many enterprise applications, they are neither rugged enough nor compatible with existing networks," said David Molesworth, general manager. "The M9700 offers a solution that combines the best-loved features of consumer models with a rugged design and the Windows-based operating system needed for seamless migration into existing Windows-based networks."
Protected against water, dust and 4-foot drops to concrete, the M9700 offers a more durable solution than consumer tablets, enabling its use in a variety of environments.
The M9700 offers reliable communication, with options for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and optional 3G and GPS. An autofocus 2MP camera with flash allows mobile workers to document issues and communicate them with the home office in real time.
The M9700 ships with Windows Embedded Standard 7 and a 32GB solid state drive.
