Were getting our first look at the new ET1 tablet from Motorola Solutions, a computer designed for a variety of vertical markets. It will be sold through channel partners.
The ET1 is supposed to be an enterprise-class device that gives you a consumer-class user experience. The ET1 includes enhanced durability; and optical barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader; hot-swappable battery packs; and secure system software. Its designed to give you three-to-five years of life, ruggedness beyond that of a consumer-class device.
And its that ruggedness that makes the price worth it, Motorola Solutions told Computerworld. While the company hasnt released exact pricing details, it will be less than $1,000 when businesses buy in bulk.
The 7-inch, Wi-Fi ET1 runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread); has a 1GHz dual-core processor; 8GB of internal storage expandable to 32GB; and two cameras.
Motorola says the ET1 is password-protected so it can be easily shared and instantly provisioned for each employee according to his or her level of responsibility and access rights. Based on log-in information, managers can automatically control and monitor use of approved applications to help ensure on-the-job productivity is not compromised.
Initially deployed for retail and warehouse workers, it will begin shipping in December.
