Rugged tablets are strong. They can stand water and dust better than normal tablets. They get specially tested on the resistance of water and dust. Also rugged tablets are usually tested with a drop test. Most of the time the batteries in rugged tablets are bigger, because rugged tablets are often used outside, where you can’t charge them every some hours.

The benefits of rugged tablets are that they are strong. They resists water and dust. They are specially made for working outside. So most of the time the screen can still be seen well even when the sunlight is falling on it.

A rugged tablet is like a standard tablet, but that has been muscled up. So it is stronger and specially made for rough circumstances. There are videos where you can see that cars drive over rugged tablets. That is a thing you should not do with a normal, standard tablet.

Rugged tablets are specially designed for working outside. So they can resist shocks better, but also falls, dust and water. They also can still give a good screen view when there is sun. Besides that rugged tablets have all the features as normal tablets, like with camera’s, USB, Bluetooth and more.

Rugged tablets are often used outdoors in the field. For example with GPS surveying a rugged tablet is great. GPS surveying is done in all weather conditions, like rain. But in a construction place it can also be dusty and sandy. A rugged tablet can resist those conditions. Everywhere where there are those rough conditions, but where you still want to use a tablet a rugged tablet is the solution.

Rugged tablets can stand water and dust. They can also resist falls on a hard floor. Since they are used outside they normally have a big battery, so you can use it for a longer time. But that means the casing of the tablet has to be stronger and heavier than the one of a normal tablet. Also the bigger battery gives more weight to the tablet. So the main big disadvantage is that a rugged tablet is usually heavier than a normal tablet. The designers of rugged tablets try to solve this problem by choosing lighter and stronger materials.

A tablet is rugged when it is made for rough circumstances. Usually you can see on the edges of the tablet if it is rugged. Those edges are normally thicker on a rugged tablet. They is to absorb any potential fall. Further the designers of rugged tablets try to make rugged tablets look like a normal tablet.
