Functionalise your tablet in the field

The BT-80 is the latest addition to iKey's expanding line of rugged tablet accessories and makes the perfect choice for enterprises which need enhanced tablet utility in harsh field conditions.

Nothing can beat a tablet for portable computing, particularly for organisations working in harsh, rugged or less than ideal conditions. However, there are times when a little more functionality is required - for example, for data input or typing at speed. To have the best of both worlds, the addition of a wireless keyboard that can withstand the same rigours makes perfect sense. Operatives have the choice of using their tablet in the conventional way or connecting to it with a Bluetooth enabled keyboard to radically enhance its capabilities.
