Being tough is what the LINX / Newland Tough Tab 8 is all about. It has an IP 67 certified rating and can deal with accidental drops. These features along with its impressive specification, which includes 3G connectivity, make it the ideal tablet for business.
Being able to deal with the occasional drop of rain is essential for products designed for business use. This is the case with the LINX / Newland Tough Tab 8 with Barcode Scanner. With its IP 67 certification, it is impervious to dust and is able to withstand immersion in water of, up to, a depth of 1 metre for 30 minutes.
Being able to withstand water and dust is just part of the requirements for a business class product, as typically they also need to be able to deal with the occasional drop. With this in mind, this tablet is able to be dropped, up to, 1.2 metres onto concrete floors giving you extra peace of mind.
Drops should, however, be minimised with the convenient hand strap. With it, users are given full 360-degree rotation and freedom of movement. If you decide the hand strap is not for you can remove it by loosening the screws which hold it in place.
To increase the productivity of staff the Linx Tough Tab 8 features a built-in stylus. This enhances the navigation through menus and makes all interactions more precise. Perfect for when a member of staff needs to draw a plan of a building or take some notes.
If you as a business can take advantage of barcodes to speed up operations, then the integrated barcode scanner on the LINX8TT/HS model will be incredibly handy. It reduces the amount of time staff spend entering product codes and gives more opportunity to concentrate on other aspects of work.
The barcode scanner in the LINX8TT/HS supports symbologies: 2D; PDF417, Data Matrix ECC200 / 000 / 050 / 080 / 100 / 140, QR-Code.

It is often necessary for staff to stay in communication with the office. With the inclusion of a MicroSIM slot which is 3G compatible (operating at 900/2100 MHz) you can do just this via email and other forms of communication. Staff will also be able to take advantage of the ability to access Internet-based services and be more efficient while in the field.
To offer more options for connecting the inclusion of Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, will make it easier to use the tablet in areas of poor network coverage, and with peripherals.
The inclusion of GPS makes it possible for staff to use apps which rely on accurate location information. Also provides accurate tracking for the security of staff.
In addition to the features above you need to know LINX / Newland Tough Tab 8 can cope with the demands you place on it. Happily, it has a list of powerful features which make it ideal for business.
The processor is an Intel Atom x5-Z8350, which is quad-core and clocked at 1.44GHz to 1.92 GHz. This makes the tablet powerful and efficient and gives staff the ability to do more in less time. The inclusion of 2GB of RAM gives plenty of opportunity to multi-task between apps, and with 32GB of storage, this should be enough for most users needs.
With the 8 inch, IPS display staff will find it easy to interact with the tablet, and it gives plenty of space for the benefit of the built-in stylus to be apparent. They will enjoy the brightness of the display and find it is clear with the 800 x 1280 pixel resolution.
