The Sahara TufTab is a hardcore PC that can withstand just about anything. Gearlog notes, "The Sahara TufTab i310XT is one of the first touchscreen tablet PCs to offer resistance to rain, dust, humidity, extreme temperatures, and vibrations. Featuring a 1.0-GHz Celeron M processor and 1GB of SDRAM, the i310XT will not blow you away with functionality, but it also won't blow away in a storm."

Implications - While many technologies within the industry today serve a wide range of useful and important functions, they are often criticized for proneness to be broken or damaged easily. Businesses that can provide high-tech products to consumers without the burden of being loss to clumsiness will see large returns amongst consumers today.
