Chrome OS tablets have been a thing since last year, but there still aren’t all that many of them. Acer, Asus, CTL, and Google have released a single model each, and that’s about it for the consumer space.
But commercial device maker AOPEN has something new — the first Chrome OS tablet designed for commercial and enterprise use.
The AOPEN Chromebook Commercial Tab features a rugged design and the 9.7 inch tablet is designed to withstand up to 26 drops from a height of four feet. It also has a hand strap, a VESA-compatible case for mounting the tablet, and a Wacom stylus for writing or drawing.
In terms of basic specs, the device is a lot like other budget Android or Chrome OS tablets:
- 9.7 inch, 2560 x 1536 pixel IPS display (300 nits)
- 4GB LPDDR3 RAM
- 32GB eMMC 5.1 storage
- 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
- 802.11ac WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.1
- USB 3.0 Type-C port
- MicroSD card reader
- Stereo speakers
- Headphone jack
The tablet is powered by a Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core processor (which is inaccurately described as dual-core on the AOPEN website) and features ARM Mali-T864 graphics.
AOPEN says the tablet should last for up to 10 hours on a charge.
Since this is a commercial/industrial product, AOPEN doesn’t list a price on its website. You’ll have to contact the company for a quote.
