Rugged Android tablet from Motorola in the making?

Motorola currently has only one Android tablet – the Xoom, with or without 3G – but it certainly readies the launch of new ones.

One of Moto’s upcoming tablets may be a rugged one, which, according to Engadget, is now in beta testing, and should be part of Motorola’s plan to be the “first physical embodiment defining Android for the Enterprise.”

The rugged Moto tablet doesn’t have a name yet, but there’s an image of what it could look like (see below). Moreover, the tablet’s features have been unveiled, and they include: Android Gingerbread (weird choice), a 7 inch display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8GB of on-bard memory, 1GB RAM, and a dual-core TI OMAP processor clocked at 1GHz.

On the rugged side, the tablet offers resistance to dust, splashing water, extreme temperatures, and can withstand four feet drops.

For the moment, we’re not sure Moto has any working prototype of this rugged tablet, so don’t blame us if it will never be released.
