MELBOURNE, Fla., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- An Android tablet for high-performance tactical communications by the military and first responders has been announced by the Harris Corp. of Florida.

"The new Harris tablet builds on our leadership in mission-critical communications to provide a powerful device for processing mission-critical information,'' said Dana Mehnert, group president, Harris RF Communications. "This tablet was fully designed for the tactical and public safety environment with optimized features for reading in sunlight and size, weight and power.

"As an Android device, the tablet also is fully upgradeable for emerging applications."

The RF-3590 utilizes the military's emerging wideband tactical radio networks for real-time information sharing on the battlefield. For the public safety, it can deliver on-scene, real-time critical data to law enforcement, fire service or federal agency users connected via both public and private cellular networks.

Harris said that the RF-3590, built around a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, offers stand-alone computing and features built-in cameras, an accelerometer, digital compass, pressure and temperature gauges, gyroscope and proximity/ambient light sensors.
