Tablets are not nearly as popular as they used to be, mainly due to large smartphones and foldables. They are still very useful, however, especially specialized ones. We’re here to talk about one such tablet, the Getac ZX80.

The Getac ZX80 is a brand new rugged tablet with programmable buttons

That brand name may not seem all that familiar to many of you, but if you need a truly rugged tablet, you may be interested. The Getac ZX80 is one such tablet, as you can see in the images provided below the article.

This phone is extremely well-protected, and it even has some physical buttons on the front. Those buttons are programmable. The company says this tablet is “highly customizable”, and that it has been “purpose-built to thrive in challenging work environments”.

It can withstand extreme temperatures

This tablet can withstand temperatures to -29C, and up to 63C. It weighs 590 grams, and it comes with both MIL-STD-810H and IP67 certifications. So not only can it take a hit, but it is also water and dust-resistant.

It has a 16:10 display aspect ratio, and its brightness goes up to 1,000 nits. This is an 8-inch tablet, by the way. Believe it or not, it even includes Getac’s hot-swappable battery technology. That’s not something we usually see in tablets.

65W wired charging is supported here

Speaking of the battery, this tablet supports 65W wired charging, and a charger comes with the device. The company also mentioned a “docking station for efficient use in the office”. We’re not sure if it comes with the tablet, though.

The Qualcomm QCS6490 chip fuels it, while Android 13 comes pre-installed on this device. You’re also getting 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS flash storage.

Various software solutions by Getac come pre-installed

The device is equipped with Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6E 802.11ax, and an optional dedicated GPS. Getac’s software solutions come pre-installed too, including the brand-new Log Tool, demployXpress, enrollXpress, GDMS, Driving Safety Utility, and OEMConfig.

The Getac ZX80 is priced at $599.99, in case you’re wondering. If you’re interested, you can find more information here.
