"Rugged mobile devices enable flexible and specialized mobile workflows, as businesses look to mobilize larger segments of their frontline workforces with durable purpose-built devices," says Bryan Bassett, senior research analyst, Enterprise Mobility: Deployment Strategies, IDC. "As mobility continues to influence how people work around the world, the tools workers use to complete their tasks must be able to meet the demands of challenging and unique work environments. As a result, purpose-built rugged mobile devices are being deployed in numerous industries where traditional consumer-grade mobile devices fall short."
