MobileDemand, a provider of rugged tablet PCs, and Broomfield, Colo.-based Brother Mobile Solutions, a global provider of mobile printing and label systems, announced that all MobileDemand products — the xTablet T7000, T8700 and C1200 tablet PC systems — have been certified on the PocketJet and RuggedJet mobile printers from Brother Mobile Solutions.

MobileDemand and Brother Mobile Solutions say they have formed a strategic partnership to provide rugged mobile computing and printing systems to customers in transportation, field services, pest management, public utilities, datacom and telecom services, manufacturing and warehousing, law enforcement and other industries that use mobile computing and printing systems outside the office.

“The MobileDemand/Brother Mobile partnership will leverage the collective expertise in each of our target markets and allow both companies to expand into new markets to bring our military rugged high performance solutions to even more companies,” says Brian Beans, MobileDemand channel sales and business development manager.

MobileDemand full-screen xTablets and Brother Mobile printers are designed to go wherever work needs to get done, even in the harshest conditions, the companies say.

MobileDemand xTablets are built military-rugged to withstand the rigors of real-world field applications. They are MIL-STD 810G compliant and have an Ingress (Sealing) Rating of up to IP65, which means they have been tested to survive pressured water, temperature extremes, rain, humidity, salt, sand, dust, shock, vibration and 26 consecutive drops from up to five feet.

The xTablet full Windows 7 tablet PC systems are powered by Intel processors and offer a host of rugged tablet PC accessories including hot-swappable and high capacity batteries for all-day use and several input options such as pen-stylus, numeric keypad, on-screen or full QWERTY keyboard.

The tablets are WLAN and WWAN compatible and provide GPS on some models. Optional cradles, mounts and accessories are also available.

The Brother line of printers includes compact, mobile thermal full-page printers; rugged small-format thermal receipt and label printers; handheld and desktop laminated label printers; and wide-format desktop thermal paper label printers. A variety of media and accessories for these products are available through authorized Brother Mobile Solutions partners.
