How to choose a rugged tablet for your business?

When it comes to choosing a tablet for your business, your workers want sleek consumer styling, while you need enterprise-class durability, data capture and an accessory family that allows you to create the perfect tablet solution for your environment, workers and apps. Now you can have it all with the 8.4 inch and 10.1 inch Android ET51 and ET56 Enterprise Tablets, the thinnest and lightest Zebra rugged tablet computers. Your workers get a personal tablet that looks and feels just like their own, while you get a device family with the durability, ease-of-use, data capture capabilities and flexibility your business requires.

These tablets are built for all-day every-day business. Choose from two sizes — the compact, lightweight 8.4 inch tablet for on-the-go users or the full size 10.1 inch display, ideal for information-heavy applications. Virtually nothing will stop your tablets from delivering the reliable operation your workers need — from drops to concrete and plywood, rain, snow, dust, extreme heat, subzero temperatures, spilled liquids, and a hose-down at full force. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass display is shatter- and scratch-resistant, protecting one of the most vulnerable components of any tablet. Best-in-class brightness means easy reading, indoors and outside, even in bright sunlight. The high-resolution screen and dramatically enhanced brightness deliver superior readability, and workers can input data with a finger, with or without a glove — or a passive stylus for precision — even if the display is wet. The fastest WiFi and cellular connections keep workers connected whether they are inside your facility or out in the field in remote locations. And the fastest Bluetooth connections ensure peak performance for any connected peripherals, from printers to headphones.

When it comes to power, these tablets deliver. The ultra-powerful 8-core processor delivers superior performance on all your applications. To power the longest of shifts, just add a second optional hot-swappable battery via the innovative expansion back to more than double the battery run time. And the internal battery in ET51/ET56 is field replaceable when needed, extending product life cycle, increasing the return on your investment and protecting workforce productivity.

When it comes to scanning, the ET51/ET56 can capture it all with the optional SE4750 scan engine — including 1D and 2D barcodes in virtually any condition, plus letter, legal, A4 and A5 documents. Have scan-intensive tasks? Just pair a Zebra wearable lightweight ring scanner with the tablets for all-day scanning comfort. With the integrated 5MP front color camera, workers can place a video call over the WiFi or cellular network for instant help from a remote expert, co-workers or supervisor. And the integrated 13MP rear-facing color camera can capture high-resolution photos for proof of condition or service, videos, signatures and documents — as well as occasional barcode scanning.

The largest family of accessories makes it easy to customize the ET51/ET56 to meet the needs of every job, environment and worker. You get the most charging options, including chargers that mount on a wall or sit on a desktop. The unique ShareCradle makes the most of your backroom space and your budget by providing a common base to charge all your Zebra mobile computers and tablets with a simple swap of the right device cups. Docking stations with USB ports, Ethernet and HDMI allow you to easily convert your tablets into a desktop computer. The innovative expansion back makes it easy to add new features, from a rotating handstrap to the SE4570 enterprise-class barcode scanner and more. And your workers can choose to carry or wear the ET51/ET56 their way: on a strap across the shoulder or cross-body, on a belt via a holster or even on a hand.
