MWC: Fujitsu delivers Stylistic M702 semi-rugged Android business tablet

Fujitsu has used MWC to unveil its much anticipated Stylistic M702 tablet, a semi-ruggedised device based on the Android platform and aimed at business customers.

Available now with prices starting at €999 (£879), the Stylistic M702 is designed to be used in situations where a consumer-grade device might become waterlogged or get clogged with dust.

The firm also said it's lightweight at 590g and less costly alternative to a fully ruggedised laptop, while it claims the 10.1in device has all-day battery life.

Fujitsu said it is aiming the Stylistic M702 at professionals such as architects, insurance assessors or construction workers who may need to use a mobile device outdoors in inclement weather, so it is fully waterproof and dustproof, meeting ingress protection ratings IP5X for dust and IPX5/7/8 for water.

"Consumer devices have helped to start the mobility revolution, but they are too fragile for many working environments," said Dieter Heiss, head of workplace systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.

"We're targeting mobile workforces with the new semi-ruggedised Stylistic M702, providing a no-compromise tablet that can roll with the punches during the mobile working day and ensure business continuity."

The Stylistic M702 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is based on a 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with 32GB of flash storage, and supports 4G mobile broadband in addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity.

For security, the device has an integrated fingerprint sensor, full-disk encryption, and Absolute Computrace remote device tracking and recovery support in firmware.

Like Fujitsu's Stylistic M532 Android tablet reviewed by V3 last year, the new device comes pre-loaded with useful tools including Nitrodesk's Outlook-compatible Touchdown HD client, the ThinkFree Mobile for Tablet office application suite, Norton Tablet Security and the Citrix Receiver and VMware View clients for accessing a Windows virtual desktop session.

The Stylistic M702 also includes a scanner app, which enables users to scan paper documents using its built-in 8.1MP camera.
