It’s time to add another Android tablet to the ever growing list as Asus reveals its TOUGH-ETBW11AA tablet for those who desire a more abuse friendly device. Heading to the Japanese carrier KDDI, the new Asus tablet will be water proof, dust resistant, and can survive a 76cm drop onto typically unforgiving concrete. With all of these rugged specs comes the extra bulk needed to keep all of its guts protected by its beefy rubberized skin.
The TOUGH-ETBW11A will come equipped with a 7″ 1280 x 800 display, a NVIDIA dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 chip, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and WiMAX connectivity. There will be 16 GB of on board storage, a microSD slot, a 5MP rear-facing camera, GPS, WiFi b/g/n, and Bluetooth. Although a 7,400mAh battery is included, battery life has yet to be confirmed.
KDDI is planning to drop the tablet (pun intended) in Q4 (around late November). The tablet has yet to be priced.
