A New Rugged Tablet PC From X2 Computing Plays Multiple Games Simultaneously

New tablet PC with multi-touch screen enables multiple games to be played simultaneously on a single device to deliver significant additional revenues to gaming operators.

X2 Computing, one of the leading providers of computer-based gaming solutions has launched the X210GM, a new ruggedised tablet PC. Designed to meet the needs of a wide range of gaming applications, it is the first commercially available tablet computer to provide a three point resistive multi-touch screen for gaming applications with options for capacitive, standard and lensed models. Uniquely, this will enable multiple games to be played simultaneously on a single device and deliver significant additional revenues to gaming operators.

According to Francis Davis, Sales Director of X2: "This new tablet PC is designed to meet the precise requirements of gaming operators and has the resilience and reliability to provide dependable service in the most demanding environments, unlike the consumer-based devices that are offered by other suppliers. It will make a significant contribution towards helping operators to increase the level of third party gaming content, driving up revenues and profitability."

The X210GM is based on the Intel® Atom N270 1.6GHz processor and is compatible with a range of operating systems including Windows® 7, Windows® 7 Embedded and Windows 7 compact (CE), which makes it easier to control content management and software updates across multiple locations. It has a robust, ruggedised casing, integrated handle and variable position kick stand with a 10.1" three point multi-touch screen and a built-in gyro enabling games to be played in landscape or portrait mode according to user preference. The X210GM uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology providing access to additional video-rich content and, with a range of storage options up to 520GB, has the power to run even the most demanding gaming applications.

"X2 is now the UK's largest supplier of hand held bingo terminals with an installed market share in excess of 80%," continued Francis Davis. "We are now gearing up for a major expansion to meet the added demand from other operators wanting to upgrade their games as around 90% of all bingo played is still paper-based. We are already in advanced negotiations with bingo operators throughout the world."

X2 provides custom solutions to meet the precise requirements of gaming operators. The company works in partnership with the market's leading suppliers of gaming software, to provide a complete hardware and software solution including installation, commissioning and ongoing support. It also provides custom modular charging racks with built-in cooling systems. These can be designed and built to fit the physical layout constraints of clubs and each module provides safe and secure charging for up to 27 devices simultaneously.
