Caterpillar unveiled their first rugged tablet today with the Cat T20, an 8-inch Windows 10 tablet with IP67 rating, so that it can withstand more moisture, water splashes, more dust, drops from over 1.5 meters, and withstand higher air pressure than regular consumer tablets.
Cat have manufactured rugged smartphones for years, and even rugged covers for tablets, but the T20 is their first rugged tablet. But despite the small size and generally low hardware specs, it still costs €649, which is about 6 times as much as a regular 8-inch Windows 10 tablet.
It also weighs twice as much, at 650 grams. But it runs Windows 10, has a HD screen with 1280 x 800 resolution, is powered by a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
It has built-in 4G LTE though, as well as dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a USB 3.0 port, a mini-HDMI port, GPS and GLONASS, a 7500 mAh battery, and Cat T20 also comes with its own hand strap.
