On the outside, the ET1 Motorola rugged tablet is extremely durable. It can withstand drops, spills and bumps. There is built in protection against cold temperatures in the winter and hot temperatures in the summer. The screen on the ET1 is made with Gorilla glass, making it virtually impossible to damage. So, even if you drop it, the screen will not shatter like a consumer grade media tablet. The iPad, for example, is notorious for having a cracked or shattered screen. While the screen is tough, it is still a touchscreen. In cold weather when the user may be wearing gloves, the touchscreen capability will still work.

If multiple people are using the same tablet, you’d think there might be a memory problem? A tablet is such small a device, that having a lot of memory space seems close to impossible. However, the ET1 can support extremely graphic intensive applications. You can also have up to 32GB of memory using the micro SD card slot.

The ET1’s barcode scanner is able to capture information quickly and accurately. It takes less than one second to capture a barcode, which is faster than some barcode scanners themselves, let alone consumer tablets.

The ET1 also keeps your data secure. All information, whether on the devices internal drive or on removable media, is encrypted so it is safe and secure. With Bluetooth and wireless support, this tablet allows for easy communication with other people and devices.

The newest feature of the ET1 is its capability to connect to Wi-Fi and high speed cellular towers. It can connect to the high speed 4G network, and the 3G network. You can choose to use one or the other, or both! This feature does require a data plan, but it’s well worth it to have the high speed connection to enable maximum performance for your workforce.

So, where can I use this tablet?

This tablet can be used in a variety of work environments including retail, transportation and distribution, mobile workforce, and even healthcare.
