The Duros 8404 Rugged Tablet: A Computer For Us Outdoor Kiwis

By Benedict Wee

Ever went to the slopes for a bit of skiing and while admiring the beauty of nature that our country has to offer stopped and thought to yourself: "Wish I could read my email or look at that chart I made." ? Well Duros has the answer for you.

They've introduced the Duros 8404 Rugged Tablet PC which is sealed to IP-65 levels, making it water/dust proof, shock resistant and able to withstand extreme temperatures.

The 8404 runs on an Intel Atom Processor with memory options of up to 1GB of RAM and uses the Windows XP OS (Vista and Linux versions are also available). It also has a hot-swappable battery, allowing you to work longer outdoors and an 8.4 inch touchscreen which can be viewed under sunlight.

There is no price attached to this rugged tablet PC yet but going by their specifications, it's not going to be cheap.

Their website can be found here.
