Motorola outdoor enterprise tablet

The Motorola ET1 tablet is ergonomically developed to fit snugly in the hand. Meant for industrial applications handling and durability are key considerations in its design.

From an exterior appearance the ET1 tablet looks the same as other Android based tablets. Hold the tablet in your palm and you feel the change in ergonomics. It is a shade heavier, does not flex and slides into the palm more securely. It has been designed for industrial use and designed to support enterprise applications with multi user access levels. The current model only supports access through Wifi LAN. Later releases of models will support access via a carrier network. The tablet has been designed to withstand drops, extreme ranges of temperature upto 50 degrees centigrade, and an ultra strong and scratch proof Gorilla glass.

While current models are built on the Android OS, the developer platform RhoElements allows the same user interface to be used across multiple operating systems and form factors.

Data storage is encrypted ensuring it complies with industrial and government regulations. With multi user logins, each user interface can be customised to suit the job profile and access rights. The tablet is blue tooth enabled and has external ports to support bar and magnetic code reading as well as pen based applications. Development of application user interfaces uses a tool called RhoElements that is operating system and model agnostic. Hence once an interface is developed it does not need to be adapted for a different form factor or operating system. The batteries can be hot swapped even when the device is live.
