arbor-solution[CES 2015] We are simply unable to predict as to when an accident will happen – which means there should be precautions that one can take in order to make sure that our precious devices remain safe and sound from potential drops, knocks and scratches. Arbor Solution knows this, which is why they have come up with the Gladius 10 (heck, the name itself sounds pretty mean already) Android-powered tablet.

The Gladius 10 is one rugged tablet, and as its model name suggests, it would arrive with a generous 10.1” TFT HD LCD display while running on an octa-core Cortex A7 processor alongside a quad-core ARM Mali 3D GPU. Apart from that, it will also boast of a barcode scanner, a 1280 x 800 HD resolution count, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating, energy-efficient graphics, 2GB RAM, a 2MP camera in front to capture selfies, and a 13MP shooter located at the back. Storage stands at 16GB from the get go, where dual SIM card slots add to its functionality further. Connectivity options on the Gladius 10 include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and it has a battery life of up to 10 hours.

Just how durable is it? It can stand up to the likes of water, vibrations, dirt, extreme weather, and drops, conforming to MIL-STD-810G and IP-65 certifications. Out later this May in Canada first, the Gladius 10 is not going to come cheap with a $1,030 starting price tag. [Press Release]
