Arbor Gladius 10Â Specifications
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
On the first impression of theÂ Arbor Gladius 10Â you could feelÂ how elegant and professional it looks by the buttons and the rugged display which make it different from others. The tablet though has a rugged looks but its full made for commercial use. The professionally fit and finishing looks makes it to the first class on top of all. Â In terms of dimensions, the Gladius measures 10 x 7.8 inches display with an IPS screen technology,has a size of an iPad in a protective case offered extra by the company.
The Gladius 10 is considerably thicker by 0.9 inches than any iPad or a tablet launched in its timeÂ and it alsoÂ weights a lot more i.e. about 2.3 pounds more than any tablet existing because of the Â 4-cell batteryÂ fitted into the tablet making it a power bank too.
TheÂ Arbor Gladius 10Â has big borders along the four sides of the front side with some unique buttons on the right hand side of the tablet as seen in the featured image. The closer look reveals that theÂ logo and labels are printed beneath the protective Gorilla Glass display and something that we haven’t seen anywhere else in the tablet. the buttons include a home key and four function keys each having a white LED that lights up when you tap on it, indicating that the touch contact was registered.
The upper half consists of 4 LED’s which are connected with the 4 function keys and Â light up when we have a contact with the function keys.Â The whole tablet is protected with tight-fitting covers with hard and flexible plastic which has shutter like doors which is easy to open and close.
TheÂ docking connector is concentrated on its left side which includesÂ System reset,Â Mini HDMI,Â 3.5mm microphone and headphone jack,Â Micro USB 2.0,Â microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot,Â Standard size USB 3.0,Â Power jack, and the power button is on the right side of the tablet.
The backside of the tablet is made with the thin metal cover, a rear camera with an LED flash and an Â external battery compartment which is removable. The battery itself looks like a pack that hasÂ four camera batteries in series, wrapped in black plastic and with a short cable that plugs into the motherboard.
The tablet has the Ingress IP65 protection, meaning itâ€™s rated to resist dust completely, as well as occasional splashes and spills from water.
ARBOR chose the Intel Celeron N2930. chip with an Octa-Core processor fitted inside aiming for an affordable price tag and fanless operation, but still respectable performance.Â The Celeron N2930 is part of Intel’s next-gen “Bay Trail” platform which employs 22nm process technology.
“Bay Trail,” however, is not just a new generation of Atom processors, instead it’s a large family of single, dual, and quad core Â and Octa- Core processor chips optimized for various types of devices which the company has revealed out earlier in its devices. The new graphics support most of the same APIs and featuresÂ which includesÂ DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0, OpenCL 1.2.Â The tablet supports dual displays up to 2560 Ã— 1440 pixels (or 1080p over HDMI). Also there’s a turbo boost in the processorÂ which cleverly saves power keeping the tablet in an Â “active idle” mode.
ARBOR proudly points to the “high computing performance” of the Celeron chip inside the Gladius. To see how the quad-core N2930 fares in the Gladius 10 G0975, the company used Passmark Software’s Performance Test 6.1 that runs about 30 tests covering CPU, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, memory, and disk and then computes scores for each category and an overall PassMark score.
The device includes Â a new MediaTek MTK8392 1.7 GHzÂ Octa-Core processor which is one of the fastest processors out there for mobile devices, with a 2GB RAM and an 8GB onboard internal storage with externally expandable with micro SD slot.
The Gladius G0975 is an exceedingly solid and attractive design that can easily withstand accidents and exposure to the elements in the field. Ports are well-sealed with tight-fitting rubber plugs.
TheÂ 13-megapixel rear camera is fitted on the rear side of the tablet which has a full double HD with 2560x 1440 pixels of image resolution. 2-megapixel front camera is also featured in the phone which can be used for the selfies for our personnel use. and it has an HD display which makes the images more sharp than the normal pics.
The Arbor Gladius 10 has two SIM card slots for dual-connectivity. It has the other connectivity features which are NFC functionality, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a built-in barcode reader which is useful for the product knowledge.
