Motorola testing new rugged Android tablet

Motorola has reportedly been testing a new Android tablet that is aimed at the enterprise user. The new tablet is said to be a rugged device that is able to survive life in the field. The new tablet is apparently part of Motorola's efforts to grow its enterprise business.

The new tablet has no name, but a graphic has surfaced that gives details of the tablet. It has an 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera. It is rugged enough to survive a four-foot drop onto plywood and is sealed to IP54 rating. It has Bluetooth, WiFi, and a USB host that will support accessories and peripherals. The tablet will weigh less than 1.25 pounds and it runs Android 2.3.

The screen of the tablet is a 1024 x 600 resolution multi-touch 7-inch unit with 400nit brightness or better. The machine runs an OMAP4 dual core processor running at 1GHz. The battery life is being targeted at 5.5 hours with streaming video over WiFi connection so it should last for a full business day of data connectivity.
