Motorola Solutions today announced the ET1, a 7-inch touchscreen rugged tablet for Enterprise users. The Motorola ET1 runs on the Android 2.3.4 operating system and enhanced with enterprise functionality.
It has a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with an external 32 GB microSD card. The first version of the ET1 is Wi-Fi-only. There’s also Bluetooth, GPS, 8MP auto-focus camera, front camera, HDMI out, USB, stereo speakers and dual microphones.
Some of its features include enhanced durability for working in rugged environments such as warehouses and hospitals, an optional barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader for fast-paced verticals like retail, and hot-swappable battery packs with memory backup battery to retain RAM data for up to 15 minutes when the main battery is removed.
The ET1 is design to withstand multiple bumps and drops in a typical workday and comes with a Gorilla Glass display. The glass is 30% thicker than in most consumer tablets and is recessed to better withstand drops.
The device will also support multiple users, with logon software that helps each user find a particular applications, documents and identity profile on a remote server.
The ET1 tablet will be available in the fourth quarter of 2011. For more, check out Motorola’s promotional video below.
