DAP Technologies has released two new Windows CE 6.0-based rugged tablet computers. The voice-ready M8930 and M8940 models incorporate display technology that are viewable in bright sunlight along with the portability, modularity, and extreme ruggedness that warehouse, field service, and trucking operators need to secure maximum value from their technology investment.

Both the DAP M8930 (a 7" full-screen model) and the DAP M8940 (equipped with a 6.2" screen and a 64-key QWERTY alphanumeric keyboard) feature touch screens that utilize ambient light for viewability in all light conditions. Their ruggedness protects against exposure to extreme temperatures, direct impacts, chemical spills, scratches, and other challenging conditions both indoors and outdoors. The M8930 and M8940 conform to MIL STD 810F, are dust and water sealed to IP-67 standards, and have been engineered to withstand multiple 4-foot drops. Both tablets are backed by a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

Both tablets utilize Windows CE version 6.0 (Microsoft's latest release) running on a Marvell PXA-300 624MHz processor with 128 MB SDRAM and memory for storing data locally, including 512MB SSD (Solid State Drive) and an expansion slot supporting up to 16GB. Both tablets are powered by dual LI/ION batteries; one internal and a second that can be hot-swapped as needed.

Communications options include 3G/GPRS/GSM, Bluetooth and Summit wireless LAN 802.11b/g radios. DAP also offers integrated options that include a low-power SiRF star III 3GPS and 1D laser or 1D/2D imager scanners. The optional vehicle cradle allows the M8930 and M8940 to be mounted easily on a vehicle or forklift.

The M8930 and 8940 both measure 9 x 7.3 x 2.3 inches (230 x 185 x 60 mm) and weigh in at 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg) and 3.1 pounds (1.4 kg) respectively.
