12.2-inch GMS rugged tablet PC is known as Mobile Data Terminal,
The industrial features of the rugged tablets are tough, durable, and portable which can be used in harsh environments, such as high-temperature workshops and cold areas in the north.
The tablets should also have a higher level of industrial protection which need to be certificated by MIL-STD-810G/H and IP65/IP67/IP68, such as Drop-proof, dust-proof, waterproof, oil-proof etc.
The RuggedPC supports barcode scanning, with data acquisition and data processing capabilities. As a mobile information processing tool, mobile phones are widely used in Archaeological excavation, Exploration, Agriculture, Production, Construction and other fields to improve efficiency.

Current status for Rugged tablets
While rugged tablets have gained ground in various industrial and vertical market applications, conventional rugged laptops remain popular. Most suppliers of such specialized laptops offer both semi-rugged and fully rugged models, with the latter generally heavier and more expensive.
Weight, however, has become an issue for many customers, and several manufacturers are now offering both slimmed-down fully rugged machines as well as beefed-up semi-rugged models in a lower weight range.
As of 2021, long-time market leader Panasonic remains on top with its line of THOUGHBOOK branded rugged laptops. Getac and Dell offer strong competition, with Durabook, DT Research, Winmate and an increasing number of OEMs are also offering state-of-the-art rugged laptops.
During 2021, most rugged laptop manufacturers offered Intel 11th generation "Tiger Lake" Core processors in their high-end products. In our opinion, the switch to Tiger Lake represents a milestone in rugged laptop performance, efficiency and functionality thanks to the platforms greater optimization potential for specific hardware and specific deployment targets. In addition, Tiger Lake brought full support of Thunderbolt 4 with its support for dual external monitor support, high-speed data transfer, and both downstream and upstream charging.
Another recent trend is toward trimming size and weight from fully rugged laptops. Whereas in the past the weight difference between semi-rugged and fully rugged models was several pounds, that gap has shrunk considerably. Both semi and fully rugged laptops are more compact and weigh less now, thanks in part to increasing battery density, the switch from rotating to solid-state storage as well as replacement or miniaturization of peripherals or interfaces that used to take up a lot of space.
