It looks as though the toughest of all tablets is about to hit the streets. Armed with its own robust casing and not just your standard tablet cover accessory, which are a ‘must’ when protecting your iPad or Galaxy Notebook. The Bobcat Tablet could be just the technology device you’reÂ looking for, if you do a lot of work outdoors or in conditions where your tablet is subject to a knock or two.

If some of us want the lightest tablet on the market, thereâs also some people who want a tablet designed to be used in extreme conditions, like workers on a site.
Sounds like the perfect device to take to the beach if you ask me, with its great functionality in extreme temperature conditions and dust and water protection. I don’t think it could quite withstand a dunk in the ocean, it might do, but for that price I don’t think I’d risk it!
