Fluke Networks has announced the OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablet, which according to Fluke is a "network engineer's tablet with dedicated custom hardware for automated network and application analysis in the deployment and troubleshooting of new technologies." The ruggedized tablet runs Windows 7, has a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and boasts two 1 gigabyte ports and a 10-gigabit port. In addition, the device includes dual 802.11N Wi-Fi radios, an on-board spectrum analysis radio and two hot-swappable batteries that deliver more than two hours of operation.

The OptiView XG also includes a suite of Fluke's customizable network analysis and testing tools. The device automatically discovers the path between two points in the network and monitors performance along that link to identify network issues and provides assistance with troubleshooting by collecting and analyzing granular data collected over a 24-hour period. In addition, the OptiView XG is capable of monitoring up to 30,000 devices and end points on a network. The device is no doubt one of the pricier Windows 7 tablets out there, ranging in price from $25,000 to $30,000.

It is the iPad’s world and other tablets are just living in it. That, of course, has not stopped device makers from introducing a slew of new offerings as the role of tablets in the enterprise continues to evolve.  The saving grace of some client hardware vendors trying to keep up with the iPad, or avoid it altogether, may be the emergence of business-class tablets.  In an update to our most recent coverage of tablet offerings, we’ve highlighted seven new tablets, some of which are looking to compete with the iPad through differentiation and some of which are seeking to carve specific niches in particular sectors of the enterprise.
