Glacier Computer Fusion 7

Glacier Computer believes that its new Fusion 7 Rugged Android Tablet is the device that will cause the industrial marketplace to embrace the Android platform and all of its advantages fully. The Fusion 7 extends the Glacier Computer product line of rugged industrial PCs—including rugged tablets, portable hand-held devices and fixed mounted data collection computers—that typically are used in harsh industrial environments where a standard PC cannot survive. Glacier states that the Fusion 7 is compact, light and feature-rich, enabling businesses and their mobile users to add efficiencies throughout the operation while providing a capital asset with an extended useful life and a superior ROI. The Fusion 7 combines the advanced power management and memory management capabilities of Android enabling more than one million applications to run on the typically rugged Glacier device. To ease transition to the new OS, Glacier is collaborating with The Allen Group and SOTI, which will enable broader adoption of the Android OS within the traditional Windows environments of the industrial marketplace.
