Display And Options
Toughpad's 10.1-inch display puts out 1,920-x-1,200 pixels and is backed by an 800-nit LED. Like all "Tough" devices we've tested, the screen is clearly visible outdoors even in the brightest sunlight. Behind the unit's toughened glass is a 10-point capacitive touch screen, and its second-generation IPS panel is driven by an Intel QM77 video controller with 1664 MB of VRAM. Next-gen IPS reportedly improves energy efficiency without compromising its near 180-degree viewing radius. An included stylus tucks neatly away in an integrated cradle; a tether is among the optional Toughpad accessories as is a hand strap for holding the unit palette-style. Options for wireless include radios for 4G LTE and 3G Mobi networks, as well as a GPS receiver. The Toughpad includes Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n with ports for an optional dual high-gain antenna.
