Handheld, a manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, PDAs and smartphones, announced the launch of the new version of its Algiz 7 rugged tablet computer. The updated Algiz 7 is considerably faster than its predecessor, says the company, with better storage capacity, improved security and quicker communication capabilities.

The ultra-rugged tablet PC is small, light and fast, with multiple connectivity options and a wide range of functions, ideal for field workers demanding a super-durable product that is tough and powerful, yet light and easy to work with, asserts Handheld. The Algiz 7 meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibrations, drops and extreme temperatures; with its IP65 rating it keeps dust and water out as well.
