Rugged and Tough de­vices

HWM (Singapore) - - Learn -

Wa­ter and dust resistance is just one facet of a prod­uct's rugged­ness. There are tougher and more rugged de­vices for con­sumers who travel or work in harsh en­vi­ron­ments.

Pana­sonic Tough­books or Tough­pads are sub­jected to over 501 tests at the com­pany's Kobe fac­tory to en­sure its resistance to shock, dust, drops, hu­mid­ity, sand and tem­per­a­ture changes.

Then there's RugGear, a man­u­fac­turer of rugged smart­phones. It re­cently launched two smart­phones at Com­mu­nicAsia 2013, the Apex RG960 and Swift II Rg210, claim­ing to be the tough­est An­droid phones in the world.

Be­sides its IP67 rat­ings, both smart­phones are also shock proof and pres­sure proof. Ac­cord­ing to RugGear, the de­vices can re­sist a two-meter drop on con­crete.
