We've already seen a few devices based on
Intel's Mobile Clinical Assistant platform, but TabletKiosk looks to be raising the bar slightly with its new MediSlate MCA i1040XT which, among other things, is apparently the only such device with a sunlight-readable touchscreen. This being TabletKiosk, the device is also ruggedized and rated for drops of up to four feet, and it's fully sealed to resist spills and hold up to hospital disinfectants. Otherwise, you can expect a Core 2 Solo ULV processor, 2GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, two hot-swappable battery bays to keep things running all day, an optional 3G data card, and a whole slew of built-in bonuses, including a barcode scanner, an RFID reader, a fingerprint reader, and a 2 megapixel webcam. What's more, while TabletKiosk is obviously targeting medical professionals, it seems like it's also more than happy to sell one to anyone else interested, as the tablet's now up for order on its website for $2,795.
