Ruggedized technology purveyor Xplore Technologies Corp today announced that it has introduced the RangerX -- the company’s first fully-rugged Android tablet, which blends versatility with Xplore’s proven rugged performance. The new lightweight tablet with both IP65 and MIL-STD 810G ratings is aimed at field service industries such as utilities, energy, warehousing, logistics, transportation, military and public safety.
Typhoon tablet lawsuits
New lawsuits have been filed by Typhoon Touch Technologies against the makers of tablet PCs, accounts say. The company first gained attention in December of last year, when it accused prominent computer builders Dell and Motion Computing of violating patents used not only in tablets, but also in smartphones and UMPCs. The new suits are targeted exclusively at makers of tablet PCs though, and name Electrovaya, Xplore Technologies and Sand Dune Ventures (a.k.a. TabletKiosk) as the defendants.
