The optional Gobi™ 3000 WWAN module allows the M9700 tablet to connect to multiple carriers for truly mobile Internet. With carrier-independent mobile broadband, field workers can connect to virtually any carrier network.

The M9700 ships with Windows Embedded Standard 7 as the standard operating system and will support Windows 8 as well.

The M9700 features a 9.7-inch multi-touch display, 32 GB solid state drive and 2 MP camera. At just over 2 pounds and less than an inch thick, the M9700 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.

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. Other communications features for the M9700 include WLAN, Bluetooth and optional GPS.

The M9700, along with several new rugged tablet and handheld computers, will be displayed at ProMat 2013, held January 21-24 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
