The iPad may be one of the most popular tablets in the market these days, but it is not exactly the most robust and rugged, especially for outdoor and extreme settings. A rugged Android tablet can be a better alternative. While you have the option to buy a waterproof and shockproof case for your iPad, a rugged Android tablet is already built with a tough case that can withstand most forms of shocks, vibrations, and drops, so it is designed exactly for the most extreme treatment, situations, and weather conditions.
A rugged Android tablet can be as powerful and capable as an iPad. The best models run in the latest version of Android, while ensuring fast and speedy performance. This way, you can use all the necessary apps and access the data that is needed for your lifestyle or job, while ensuring that you can use your tablet safely when exposed to water, dust, construction sites, and other conditions where an iPad may be too sensitive to be present.
You can find most of the features of an iPad in the most advanced rugged Android tablets, such as two cameras that can take clear and vibrant photos, and a high-resolution screen that lets you see colours and detail vividly. You are likely to find a two-megapixel front camera and an eight-megapixel rear camera on a rugged seven-inch multi-touch Android tablet. The body of the tablet is designed for an easy and secure grip, so you can be sure that it will not slip from your grasp. Even if you accidentally drop it on the ground or in water, or water splashes on it, it will be able to survive the impact without any changes in its performance.
Rugged Android tablets are built for the outdoors, so they typically come in bright and easy-to-spot colours, so you can easily find it, even under dim lighting. Some units come with an adjustable handle, so you can carry the tablet with a single hand and keep your other hand free for other activities or for data input.
