Getac unveils rugged, versatile new K120 tablet for superior productivity in the field


The rugged new K120 tablet from Getac thrives in tough environments. It delivers advanced versatility and high performance for mobile field professionals in manufacturing, utilities, transportation, natural resources and other adverse settings.

Getac boasts an impressive track record and the next generation of the K120 tablet doesn’t let up, comprehensively trumping its popular predecessor on a range of features that help to optimise productivity in remote and adverse environments.

The new K120 is powered by an 11th Generation Intel quad-core i5/i7 processor with integrated Iris Xe graphics, known as “Tiger Lake”. The combination delivers impressive performance, responsiveness and visuals. Multiple tasks can be carried out at once without slowing or overheating.

The new K120’s connectivity has taken on a new level thanks to Bluetooth 5.2, inbuilt Wi-Fi 6 and wireless wide area network (WWAN) with Integrated GPS/GLONASS. A wide selection of over-air interfaces can be used. Thunderbolt 4 technology delivers rapid and easy data collection in the field. The device is designed with speed in mind, with PCIe NVMe user-replaceable SSD storage and 16GB of memory standard.

The screen is easy to read in the sun, owing to Getac sunlight readable technology and a 12.5-inch, 1,200 nits LumiBond 2.0 display. Various touch modes – such as regular touch, glove and pen modes, and an optional digitiser mode – provide suitable input methods for the setting. An innovative dual hot-swappable battery design goes the distance.

The new K120 protects sensitive data with powerful security features, including multifactor authentication management. Features include Intel vPro Technology, TPM 2.0, high frequency (HF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader, smart card reader, fingerprint reader and Windows Hello.

Versatility is at the heart of the new Getac K120. It is easy to adapt to diverse settings, with an extensive range of user modes and optional accessories, including secure vehicle and office docks, hard handle, shoulder strap (2-point), dual-bay battery charger and full-size keyboard.

The ruggedness of the new Getac stands out from the crowd. It is 1.8m drop resistant, with MIL-STD-810H, MIL-STD-461G and IP66 certification. Operating in temperatures from -29°C to 63°C, the device allows users to get to work without fear of data loss, damage or failure.

The new K120 represents a major advance on the successful original model, said Rick Hwang, president of the rugged and video solutions business group of Getac. “The original K120’s blend of portability, connectivity and rugged reliability made it ideal for customers who needed a solution that could excel in every scenario, not just a few,” said Mr Hwang.

“The next generation K120 raises that bar even higher, combining industry-leading rugged design with the latest technology, applications and services, to deliver a comprehensive solution that helps optimise productivity across a wide range of challenging industries.”
