Product description

Imagine doing the same work you do now, but doing it better. The Algiz RT8 is a unique 8-inch Android tablet computer built specifically to increase fieldwork efficiency. Work faster, with more focus and fewer interruptions. The Algiz RT8 is ultra-rugged, with a stunning screen, user-friendly design, a range of built-in tools and optional accessories, and even a suite of free mobile device management software. We’d say this tablet can do everything a consumer tablet can do, but that’s not quite true — it can do much more.

An all-terrain Android tablet
You can dock this tablet in your truck, but you don’t have to leave it there. Holster it, pole-mount it, or swing it over your shoulder in a carry case and pick up your work right where you left off — even in bright sunlight or pouring rain. It can go wherever you go, thanks to an IP67 rating and MIL-STD-810G testing. The Algiz RT8 is tough enough to withstand repeated drops, extreme temperatures and altitudes, humidity, and water and dust exposure. Our customers have used their Handheld rugged computers under the sea and on top of the world.

Built-in data collection and communication
The Algiz RT8 shines when it comes to collecting and sharing all kinds of data. Snap a high-res photo and email it to a colleague, or scan a barcode to update your office database in real time. Work orders stay current and data stays safely stored, both on your device and in your preferred cloud system. Use this tablet’s built-in u-blox GNSS receiver, gyroscope, compass and more, or attach your own tools, sensors and antennas. Stay wired through waterproof physical ports, or connect via BT and NFC. Plus, you’ll be able to work a full day thanks to long battery life and field-swappable spares.

An 8-inch multi-touch screen? That’s brilliant.
Not all workspaces have four walls, so let us give you a visual: You, viewing and manipulating maps, images, charts, reports and spreadsheets directly from a super-portable tablet computer in the middle of your job site. Whether your “office” is a field, a forest, or a warehouse, the Algiz RT8 delivers bright, beautiful graphics on its 8-inch capacitive screen, designed with 10-point multi-touch and strengthened with Gorilla Glass. And if it’s raining or is cold, the Algiz RT8 offers rain-mode and glove-mode.

Free mobile device management with MaxGo MDM software
Setting up new devices can be a hassle — especially if you’re deploying more than one. The Handheld MaxGo Android software suite make it easy to save your settings once, apply them across all your devices, and get to work. With MaxGo Manager, Staging, Kiosk Home and Kiosk Browser, it’s easy to keep your Algiz RT8 tablet secure, focused and incredibly efficient.

Carry cases, docks and charging accessories
Handheld devices are built for rattling all day in truck cabs, scanning packages in warehouses, or gathering and storing scientific data in the wilderness. But sometimes, the difference between being able to do amazing things and actually doing them comes down to the right accessories. Keep your hands free, your work in sight, your batteries charged or your tools connected with a wide range of Handheld accessories built specifically for the Algiz RT8 tablet.

Handheld: Rugged Computers for tough Environments

Manufacturer of Rugged Computers
Handheld is a privately-held manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, including rugged tablets and PDAs. Handheld is one of the fastest growing companies in the sector. Together with our resellers around the globe, we form partnerships that offer products that withstand the toughest conditions and solutions to get the job done.

Subsidiaries and Partners
The Handheld headquarters is based in western Sweden, in the town of Lidköping. We have subsidiaries in Finland, USA, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, The Netherlands and in Australia. Having these remote branches helps Handheld maintain a close relationship with and offer better service to our customers. To truly fulfill our goals and vision of being a global company with a local mindset, we have built up an extensive partner network with more than 1,000 authorized partners covering all territories.

The begining of Handheld
Our beginning goes back to the birth of the rugged device market. Handheld’s founder, Jerker Hellström, helped pioneer rugged computer manufacturing while part of the British company Husky Computers Ltd. In 1997, Jerker and some colleagues acquired the Scandinavian division of Husky Computers and founded Handheld Group. The company continued to distribute and market Husky products with a focus on the Scandinavian market.
In 2003, a new ownership structure was set in place when Thomas Löfblad joined Jerker as a co-owner. With ambitions of building a leading company in the worldwide rugged industry, Thomas and Jerker formed a new, two-fold strategy: to expand globally and to move the company from a distribution business model to a manufacturing model.

Resellers and Distribution
Handheld’s channel-centric approach focuses on building a strong worldwide network of resale and distribution partners. Numerous local subsidiaries support our growth by offering physical locations in closer proximity to our partners and end users. We established our first subsidiary in Finland in 2007. The U.S. office was founded in 2008, followed by new subsidiaries in Italy and the Netherlands in 2009, and in Sydney, Australia in 2011. In early 2012, Handheld acquired assets from distributor Latschbacher/TimbaTec in Germany and Switzerland and subsequently started Handheld Germany and Handheld Swiss. Later that year, the U.K. subsidiary was born.
The vision to build best-in-class rugged computers using an outsourced approach has come to fruition in our lean and efficient Virtual Production Model. According to this development model, all specifications and industrial design elements are created in-house, while engineering and manufacturing are outsourced. Today, we have manufacturing partners in Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and China.

Great achievement and success
Handheld’s journey so far has been marked by great achievement and success. Our organization has won numerous awards for growth and excellence, and we continually attract top talent to our management team, which is made up of some of the most experienced rugged experts in the world.
From our founding to the present, we’ve built our legacy upon pioneering new methods, expanding our reach and producing the very best rugged computers in the world.
