Casio debuts pair of rugged Android 4.0 tablets

Casio today announced a pair of Android tablets designed for business users who find themselves in the field on a regular basis.  Built around the idea of keeping things Smart and Tough, the 4.0 two tablets offer shock-resistant designs to withstand drops and come with IP54 standards to protect against dust and splashes.

We’re not exactly sure of the differences between the V-T500-GE and V-T500E  tablets as they come with similar specs.  Details include 10.1-inch displays with LED backlight, 1.5 GHz dual-core processors, NFC read/write, digital pen support (sold separately), hand belts for secure holding, and a neck strap.

Pricing and availability are not immediately clear so we’re hoping to get more information soon.  That said, these look like the types of tablets that you’ll see on construction sites, up on telephone poles, and (literally) in a field.
