The iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab have at least one thing in common: they are wimpy. Neither gadget looks like it could take the backswing of a hammer or a drop from the cab of an 18-wheeler. The Getac V200 is a different story, and SlashGear says its coming this October.
The V200 has a 12.1" "super-bright" 12.1" 1,200 nit multitouch-capable display. That touchscreen is resistive, which is a plus in this case as it allows for gloved-use. The processor is a 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7-620LM processor with WiFi b/g/n and MIL-STD-810G compliance, as well as IP65 resistence to dust, vibration, water and temperatures down to -20 degrees centigrade. There's also gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1, USB, VGA, RS232, eSATA and an SD reader. GPS and 3G are optional.
Security comes in the forms of a smartcard reader, fingerprint scanner and hardware encryption. The battery can be swapped without turning the tablet off. Expect to pay around $3,799 to $5,099 depending on the options you pick.
