  • MOQ of 500 and lead time apply
  • With an Intel® Quad-Core processor, the Flex 8A gives you the power and performance you need to efficiently complete your daily operations.

  • Mobile workers can stay connected to the internet and cloud with WiFi 802.11b/g/n1
  • The xTablet Flex 8A comes standard with a protective case which is MIL-STD-810G certified, tested by dropping the tablet 26 times from 5 feet to plywood over concrete.
  • The scratch-proof screen protector does exactly what it says, protects the screen from scratches. It is also impact resistant, enduring a 225g steel ball being dropped from 100cm.
  • The Li-ion batteries last up to 7 hours2 depending on app usage.
  • The Windows® operating system runs full versions of your business and desktop applications providing even greater functionality to a mobile workforce. That means long-term cost savings.
