The tablets also feature In-Plane Switching (IPS) which is a wide viewing angle screen technology. It is meant to maintain clear colour reproduction even at off-axis viewing angles.

The devices also have surface-mounted projected capacitive touch screens that track five simultaneous touch points.

The T1011 has a ruggedized design to withstand accidental drops and is water resistant. The T9702 is equipped with Bluetooth 3.0 which allows wireless integration with a keyboard.
