The   Algiz 8X offers communication features such as LTE and dual-band WLAN, along with an 8-inch projective capacitive touchscreen that is ultra-bright and built for outdoor use. Enabling glove mode or rain mode allows for seamless operation in changing weather. The chemically strengthened glass can take a beating - it survives an impact test in which a 64-gram steel ball is dropped on the screen 10 times from a height of 1.2 meters. The Algiz 8X also comes with an optional active capacitive stylus.

"The new Algiz 8X is the most compact and ergonomic Windows tablet we have ever developed. We've pushed the limits of modern field technology with this product, fulfilling customers' needs for powerful computing, mobility, outstanding screen performance and battery life. We made no compromises," says Johan Hed, director of product management.
