Data communications and telecommunications equipment provider Motorola Solutions has launched enterprise-class tablet ET1, which is designed for a variety of industries.

The ET1 features enhanced durability, an optional barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader, hot-swappable battery packs, secure system software and secure multi-slot recharging stations.

The new Wi-Fi-enabled tablet is based on log-in information and is password-protected, said the company.

With ET1, retailers can run a variety of applications developed by Motorola’s extensive partner and independent software vendor (ISV) community, including: assisted selling; mobile point of sale (mPOS); manager electronic dashboards; planogram management and compliance; and an item locator.

ET1 runs an enterprise-ready hardened version of the Android operating system and it uses Gorilla Glass 7-inch color display for video and image display.

ET1 is supported by Motorola’s portfolio of enterprise-grade software modules including RhoElements, a new HTML5 application enablement framework.

ET1 features a durable design to withstand accidental drops and bumps; optional integrated bar code scanner and magnetic stripe reader; and a hot-swappable rechargeable battery pack, with memory back-up battery to retain RAM data for up to 15 minutes.
