Fujitsu unveils 'military-grade' Android 4.0 tablet

Summary:If you're lifestyle is too rough for an iPad, then the Android 4.0-powered Fujitsu Stylistic M532 could be just the tablet for you -- and at a price that won't break the bank.

If an iPad just isn't robust enough to put up with the way you treat your tablets, then Fujitsu has a device that you might be interested in taking a look at.

The Fujitsu Stylistic M532 is an Android 4.0 tablet powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 T30S quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor. It features a 10.1-inch 10-point touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also features a front and rear-facing cameras -- 8 and 2 megapixels respectively -- and a battery that's good for 8.4 hours of video playback.

This tablet also comes with a 1 year subscription to Absolute Computrace's tracking tool, helping you protect your investment if you're a little absent-minded with your tech toys.

This tablet is no heavyweight either, topping the scales at a petite 1.23 pounds compared to 1.44 pounds for Apple's iPad 3.

But there's more.

This tablet is a lot more robust than the competition. It's been built to pass the MIL-STD-810G standard, covering real-world environmental stresses such as shock, humidity and exposure to dust. In addition, according to the specs "rugged glass protects the display," although no further details are given about what this translates to in the real world. None of this makes the Stylistic M532 indestructible, but it does help make it tougher than regular tablets.

These tablets are ideal to those who spend some of their time in the outdoors and want something a little more robust than regular tablet offerings.

The Fujitsu Stylistic M532 is priced at $549 and is available immediately.
