Maxatec has launched a new 10.1-inch Android Business Pad that provides a mobile computing platform claimed to be substantially superior to standard tablet PCs. The Bluebird Pidion BP70 offers a wealth of features and functionality in a slim, lightweight 757g, and rugged IP65 waterproof TankSmith design. The BP70 is equipped with Eyelluminate display technology, which is a close bonding of the Corning Gorilla Glass touch screen with the LCD. This provides a clear view in all light conditions, whether inside or out, which improves productivity.
"The Pidion BP70 adds to our extensive Bluebird Pidion range of enterprise class mobile computing hardware, which includes rugged PDAs, handheld computers and tablet PCs. This new product has been carefully designed to provide users with an aesthetically pleasing 10.1-inch Android Business Pad that is reliable and withstand all the demands of the business environment. The high definition Eyelluminate display is outstanding as is its battery performance, which provides more than 12 hours use on a single charge. Importantly, you can hold this device in one hand using the hand strap, which also allows you to rotate it from landscape to portrait simply by turning it with your free hand," says Steve Berry, Maxatec Director.
The long battery life is achieved using an energy efficient yet powerful dual core processor. This enables the Pidion BP70 to handle any application and do it efficiently without a sudden drop in battery performance. The device also offers connectivity to various data capture devices, including magnetic stripe, smart card, barcode and NFC readers. The aforementioned TankSmith design enables the device to operate in all weather conditions so there is no need for additional cases or sealing.
Wireless communications are catered for with 802.11 for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth for peripherals and 4G LTE for remote connectivity to the office from the field. Any data held or transmitted from the device is secure thanks to the proprietary Stonewall Security feature. In addition, any device that is stolen or lost can be decommissioned remotely using mobile device management software.
