If you find yourself constantly getting into hairy situations when you are using your tablets, then maybe you should check out the new offerings from Xplore Technologies. Xplore Technologies has developed a new line of tablets designed to be impervious to almost everything the world can throw at them.

Xplore Technologies iX104C5 has a rugged design that can withstand drops, submerging and general neglect/abusive comments. Inside the iX104C5's thick armor is "a 2.13GHz Intel Core i7 620UE processor and 2GB of RAM (expandable to 8GB) running Windows 7 with a dedicated GPS, Gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, and a Gobi 2000 mobile broadband card to keep you flush with 3G data out in the wild." Safe to say, the tablet sitting at home doesn't bring that kind of heat. No pricing details as of yet, but I would expect this one to cost many pretty pennies.
