Unique screen technology
When you’re regularly rotating between indoors and out, night and day, good and bad weather, your display needs to respond seamlessly. The TOUGHBOOK S1 provides clear images in both bright sunlight and dim settings, and although toughened, it’s screen is responsive to multitouch finger, glove and pen – even in wet conditions, thanks to patented ‘rain mode’ screen technology.
Beauty and brawn
Built on more than 25 years of world leadership in rugged mobile computing for professionals, and engineered by a company with the PC industry’s lowest failure rates. The TOUGHBOOK S1 combines a compact, refined 7-inch tablet design with military-grade standards (MIL-STD-810H), high level ingress protection against water and dust (IP65 and IP67-rated), and 1.5 metre drop resistance on concrete. It can also survive knocks, vibrations, extreme temperatures and more.
It has brains too
Adaptable for a variety of tasks, yet powerful enough to cope with the busiest of shifts, the TOUGHBOOK S1 comes with a built-in NFC, front and rear camera, and up to four configuration and customisation options – catering for barcode and smartcard readers, and additional USBs. It’s also intelligently ergonomic, with a back grip design that supports one-handed operation in the field.
It goes on. And on.
There’s 4G LTE for optimised connectivity and up to 14-hours of battery life, with warm-swap option. The TOUGHBOOK S1 can also be easily integrated into vehicles. So, your team can always communicate, access critical info and report in real time when on the move…for the entire duration of their shift.
Long-term (Google approved) Android security
When you have multiple teams – and vital data – to protect, security patch support that only lasts for two years just won’t cut it. That’s why we provide up to five years with our devices. What’s more, thanks to Android’s built-in enterprise security layers, plus a specially selected chipset, TOUGHBOOK’s Android support is equivalent to other OEM defence-grade security platforms.
The S1 (and all TOUGHBOOK Android devices in fact) is ‘Android Enterprise Recommended’. Which means it meets Google’s strict enterprise hardware and software requirements.
And if that isn’t enough, our third-party security and encryption solutions can also be certified and preinstalled on request.
