“For the first time, tactical operators have a small, lightweight, and a rugged tactical tablet build to their specs,” Scott Shainman, President of Getac said. “Until now, the solution was consumer grade technology for size and familiarity, but that lacked a rugged design and system security – the MX50 changes that.”
