Tech manufacturer Handheld has launched a new “ultra-rugged” tablet, designed to increase fieldwork efficiency.

The Algiz RT8 Android tablet has an eight-inch capacitive, multi-touch display, strengthened with Gorilla Glass, rain- and glove-mode settings, 13-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras, and an all-day, field-replaceable battery.

“The Algiz RT8 is incredibly lightweight and compact for an ultra-rugged tablet,” said Johan Hed, director of product management at Handheld Group. “It has a durable, sunlight-readable, 8-inch screen. This, coupled with the benefits of Android 9 and a lineup of enterprise-focused accessories, makes the Algiz RT8 a very versatile tool for field workers.”
