From today's "probably should have seen it coming" pile, Engadget has come into possession of what looks like a presentation slide for a ruggedized Android tablet being developed by Motorola:

moto-android-enterprise-tablet

I know, the text is illegible, so here are the main points to take home:

  • 7" capacitive LCD
  • 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB NAND onboard storage
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Stylus for signature capture
  • Removable battery good for 5.5 hours of video
  • Can withstand 4' drop onto plywood (oak, cherry, ash, maple certifications pending)
  • Works in temperatures of 0-50 degrees Celsius
  • Tons of enterprise-friendly security
  • Fingerprint scanner

This device is clearly targeted towards business, and probably specifically towards businesses with employees out in the field, where the tablet's ruggedized nature will protect it from the harsh, plywood-filled world.
