Duros Adds Intel Atom Processor and Sunlight-Viewable Screen Improvements to Its Rugged Tablet Computers

July 16, 2009

TEMPE, Ariz., July 16 /PRNewswire/ — The Duros(TM) 8404 rugged tablet computer has been reengineered to include an Intel((R)) Atom(TM) Processor and an improved sunlight-viewable 8.4″ diagonal SVGA resistive touch screen. Already one of the most rugged computers on the market due to features including its solid-aluminum chassis and non-rotating compact flash drive, the Atom processor and new screen are designed to boost performance of the computer in the field.

Intel’s 1.1 GHz Atom Processor provides increased processing power with greater efficiency, resulting in faster computing, producing less heat and extending the battery life. The Atom Processor is also available in the Duros 1214, a logistics-specific computer that mounts directly to industrial machinery, including forklifts and pallet trucks.

The new LED sunlight-viewable display achieves brightness of 1,100 nit (candelas per square meter), making it more than three times brighter than on the previous model and easy to see in the most glaring sunlight. The screen is dimmable from zero to 100 percent and has a 120-degree viewing angle.

“The Duros 8404 is used primarily for repair and service operations, transportation and logistics, and public safety–industries that need a rugged computer that can stand up to demanding field conditions,” said Eric Miller, general manager for the Duros product line. “New technology allowed us to improve on an already solid performer by boosting power and speed, screen visibility and battery life.”

Plus, the computer’s hot-swappable battery feature reduces downtime and provides continuous battery life, without the risk of losing data.
