(Pocket-lint) – Tablets are having something a resurgence in late 2021, as sales of slates were up during the pandemic, so different makers are jostling for a piece of the market.
Acer’s take is the Enduro Urban T3, a 10-inch tablet with an antimicrobial coating, meaning its screen and surfaces can negate some bacterial nasties – which is clearly one of those increased concerns for many in today’s world.
In addition to keeping things clean, the Enduro Urban T3 also keeps things lean by design: its 9.9mm thickness makes it similar to many current flagship phones.
The T3 is also designated a tough tablet, complete with military-grade robustness (MIL-STD 810H), so it can survive knocks and drops (up to 4ft/1.2m).
It’s also dust- and water-proof (IP53 standard), meaning you needn’t worry about splashes or submersions. Even the speakers and exposed ports are resistant to the elements, so no worries there.
The 10-inch display delivers a Full HD+ resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels), so no shortcuts there, while MediaTek takes on processor responsibilities, supported by 4GB RAM to ensure smooth work or play sessions.
The Acer Enduro Urban T3 (EUT310A-11A) will go on sale in the first quarter of 2022, priced at $299.99/€299.
