TAIPEI, March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Getac today announced the launch of the AI-ready ZX80, a new 8-inch fully rugged tablet, powered by the versatile Android operating system. The announcement expands and diversifies Getac’s portfolio of Android devices, giving customers in industries such as utilities, manufacturing and transportation even more choice when selecting rugged solutions to solve day-to-day challenges and boost productivity and efficiency.

Lightweight yet rugged design
The ZX80 has been purpose-built to thrive in challenging work environments, from busy warehouses and logistics hubs to remote field locations and outdoor facilities. Its lightweight form factor (590g), wide operating temperature range (-29°C to 63°C) and bright 1,000 nit 16:10 aspect ratio screen makes it particularly well suited to key tasks such as forklift truck operation and UAV control, where device performance and reliability are critical to success. MIL-STD-810H certification, IP67 certification and 6ft drop resistance further ensure it can easily stand up to the rigours of intensive field work.

For users who need full-shift functionality while working away from charging facilities, the ZX80 is also compatible with Getac’s hot-swappable battery technology, enabling users to switch additional batteries quickly and easily while in the field, saving precious time and preventing disruption.  

Highly configurable for optimal versatility 
Getac understands that every use case is unique, which is why the ZX80’s highly configurable design offers extensive flexibility when it comes to building a specification that matches customers’ needs as effectively as possible.

Key features include a dual SIM design (one physical SIM and one eSIM), which allows for rapid switching between carrier networks, while Wi-Fi 6E 802.11ax, Bluetooth v5.2, and optional dedicated GPS offer rapid data transfer and location positioning capabilities. Depending on customer requirements, the ZX80 can also be configured with 4G/5G LTE, NFC, and a barcode reader to fit different applications as needed.

AI-ready performance
The ZX80’s Qualcomm QCS6490 processor delivers astonishing performance at lower power levels, making it ideally suited to a host of IoT industrial field applications and commercial use cases. The tablet is also AI-ready, taking advantage of Qualcomm’s AI Engine to offer on-device machine learning and the ability to run AI use cases whilst maintaining battery life. To maximise the potential AI capabilities, the ZX80 incorporates 12GB LPDDR5 memory. The ZX80 comes with Android 13 pre-installed and is upgradeable to future Android OS releases, enabling users to embrace new AI features as soon as they become available.

Supported by a comprehensive range of dedicated accessories and software
Like all Getac devices, the ZX80 is compatible with a comprehensive range of dedicated accessories, peripherals and software, helping users maximise device functionality in different industry scenarios. This includes third party secure vehicle docks for optimal vehicle/forklift truck use, hand strap, stylus and high-capacity hot swappable batteries for enhanced usability in the field, and 65W USB-C adaptor and docking station for efficient use in the office. Customers can also efficiently manage their Android tablets through pre-installed Getac software solutions, including the new Log Tool, deployXpress, enrollXpress, GDMS, Driving Safety Utility and OEMConfig.

“The Android platform continues to evolve and expand throughout the industrial sector, offering new ways to solve key challenges and enhance business operations,” says James Hwang, President of Getac Technology Corporation. “With the launch of the ZX80, we’re giving our Android customers even more choice when it comes to selecting the right rugged solution for their needs and enabling them to capitalise on the versatility of Android in environments and scenarios where it wouldn’t otherwise be possible.”
