Android-Powered 8-Inch and 10-Inch Rugged Tablets Announced by MobileDemand

Top selling fully-rugged tablet form factors now also available in Android platform

HIAWATHA, IA – June 14, 2018 – MobileDemand continues to lead the way in the rugged tablet industry and has recently been announced a series of new rugged tablets and rugged cases. The company is adding two rugged tablets with Android into their extensive portfolio of rugged tablets and cases. The first of the two tablets with Android will be available for customers by the end of July 2018. Today’s announcement follows the recent announcements of the xTablet T1270, a high-performance 12.2-inch rugged tablet, and the rugged case for the iPad Pro 10.5”.

The rugged tablets with Android are based on two of MobileDemand’s well-received rugged tablets, the 8-inch xTablet T8650 and the 10-inch xTablet T1150. These tablet designs are attractive to customers because of their reasonable price points, optional accessories including hot-swappable batteries, and the ability to mount them on forklifts and other places. The rugged tablets are also thin and light, and easy to carry making them a natural fit in many industries including agriculture; construction; energy – oil, gas, and mining; field sales and service; food and beverage distribution; military and public sector; manufacturing and warehousing; transportation and logistics; and retail.

Initial release of the MobileDemand rugged tablets with Android is scheduled with Android 7.1 Nougat, with Android 8.0 Oreo™ platform to be released upon availability. The complementary xTablet A1150 and xTablet A8650 are engineered for the mobile workforce and designed to help customers get more done. The tablets are IP65 sealed for water and dust to stand up to extreme environments, and includes Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and LTE wireless, with pending Verizon certification. Both the xTablet A1150 and xTablet A8650 include a sunlight-viewable screen, and optional barcode imager and scan handle.

Like all MobileDemand products, the xTablet A1150 and the xTablet A8650 are proven rugged, passing MIL-STD-810G ruggedness testing at a 5-foot drop. They are easy to carry and hold, thanks to a convenient briefcase handle and back hand strap. The devices come with MobileDemand’s patented snap mount plate making the xTablet A1150 and xTablet A8650 mountable to walls, countertops, carts, and vehicles; the mounting systems are compatible with RAM mounts. Accessories and options for the xTablet A1150 and A8650 are fully compatible with MobileDemand’s successful tried-and-true xTablet T1150 and T8650 tablets. The rugged tablets offer high-capacity, hot-swappable batteries, 2D imager/barcode scanner, magnetic strip reader, NFC, direct wiring for forklift mounting, and 3D camera options.

“Adding Android-based xTablets to our portfolio of rugged products is a natural progression for MobileDemand. We help our customers find the right tool for the job, and for many of them, that includes tablets with Android,” said Matt Miller, MobileDemand President/Founder. “Many of the industries we serve have applications written for the Android platform, but they struggle to find a truly rugged tablet. MobileDemand’s rugged tablets with Android will stand up to the extreme environments where our customers work.”

The xTablet A1150 will be available in July 2018. Visit for information on MobileDemand’s portfolio of rugged solutions, or visit the xTablet A1150 product page. You can also contact a MobileDemand Tablet Expert at 319.363.4121 or
