ASUS TOUGH 7-inch Wwater and Dust Resistant Honeycomb Tablet Lands in Japan

ASUS has revealed a new seven-inch tablet that's water and dust resistant -- perfect for a spot of bath-time browsing or... desert rallying. The ASUS TOUGH-ETBW11AA has rubberized bezel and strips across the back, contributing to the substantial 22.2mm profile, but that hefty frame can survive drops from the heady height of 76cm. Aside from its tough-guy credentials, there's a 1280 x 800 screen, five megapixel camera, Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor, WiMAX connection and the staple WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS medley. It comes with 16GB of well-protected storage, but there's room for more via microSD. For those seeking a slate that'll survive the bumps and scrapes of the business world -- and not look ridiculous -- it'll be available to enterprise customers of Japanese carrier KDDI this November.

Very cool. Honestly I would be scared of using it in the bath or something even with it's proven credentials.

@YeamieWaffles - I hear y0u! Hahaha. If I were to own one, I would think twice and really hard before submerging it in the water. - Betty
