Motorola’s ET1: Android-Powered Enterprise Tablet

By Lito Carasig - Monday, October 10, 2011

Looking at all the companies out there unveiling their latest tablet offerings left and right, it is easy to see the trend that almost all of them have multimedia and entertainment in mind.  There is nary a trace of a slate built for the business-minded individual or an industrial one which can handle all the demands of the enterprise world. At least until now.

Enter the ET1 from Motorola.  A tablet specifically built with business in mind. Measuring 5.14 in. H x .98 in. D x 8.82 in. W (130.5 mm H x 25.00 mm D x 224.0 mm W) and weighing in at just 1.4 lbs (0.63 kg), the Motorola ET1 tablet is powered by a 1 GHz OMAP4 Dual Core CPU with 8GB of built-in storage ( expandable via a MicroSD card slot, up to 32GB). 

It is a 7-incher with a Gorilla Glass multi-touch capacitive display panel capable of 1024 x 600 resolution. Aside from this, the ET1 has 2 USB ports, HDMI-out which can be used for those killer presentations or just plain entertainment, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a front facing one for that all important video conferencing. 

Motorola has also added a proprietary expansion port for all those “snap-in” peripherals, such as barcode and magnetic stripe readers, and even those from other OEM manufacturers.

During crucial number-crunching times, the Motorola ET1 allows the user to connect a wireless keyboard via built-in Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR support. Right now, the unit has only Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n) support but Wide Area Network is already in development and will soon to follow.  Of course the unit has Autonomous GPS capabilities and a 4620 mAH rechargeable Smart Li-Ion user replaceable battery to complete its well-rounded specs. By the way, Android flavour of choice is Gingerbread (2.3).

So where can an enterprising business make use of Motorola’s ET1 Android tablet? Well for one, it is a great tool for sales personnel to give their customers fast and excellent information by having all details on hand and accessible with the touch of an icon.  This will prove vital in clinching that sale once you see how impressed the customer will be with the prompt service from sales pitch to payment all in the power of a single salesman hand.

The Motorola ET1 tablet can be used anywhere and in any business related scenario from warehousing to the medical field where secure and reliable performance is a must. As Motorola confidently sums it up:

“The ET1 Enterprise Tablet doesn’t compromise what you rely on most, like security, durability and flexibility. It’s designed with one purpose in mind – to make your enterprise ready for whatever the future holds and whatever your customers demand. It’s an uncompromising approach to mobile computing, and it’s the only tablet that’s flat-out enterprise”.
