MobileDemand Releases Tablet For The Mobile Workforce

May 2, 2014

MobileDemand has launched a series of tablet innovations for the mobile workforce. The new xTablet T1400 rugged tablet is a thin and light device capable of running standard enterprise Windows (8.1 and 7) applications while withstanding harsh operating environments, at a new price point. The xTablet T1400 represents the first in a series of new, thin and light, rugged tablets that MobileDemand is introducing in 2014.

MobileDemand will soon have a wide range of tablets for a variety of applications, functionality, durability, screen size, performance and price points, according to the release. The xTablet T1400 is a purpose-built tablet that is designed for mobile workforce functions including those found in the utilities, field service, public safety, field sales, delivery and transportation sectors.

Easy to carry - thin and light at 19 millimeters thick and 1.1 kilograms, the xTablet T1400 is comfortable to hold all day, especially for a 10 inch tablet that is rugged and sealed. The advanced fanless design allows the thinner profile while adding more features which tablets with a fan are not able to achieve.

Full day operation with hot-swappable, high capacity battery options because all jobs were “not created equally.” The xTablet T1400 has three battery pack options to meet a wide range of jobs so users have the power needed without unnecessary weight. A hot-swappable battery is provided so the user doesn’t need to worry about shutting down the tablet first.

Starting with a large 10.1 inch 1920 by 1200 LCD that is all-light readable and attached to a 10-point multi-touch, projected capacitive touch panel that works with non-insulated gloves and water for outdoor use. An optional high performance imager with ergonomic triggering provides fast and comfortable barcode reading from over the head to the toes. Or choose an NFC RFID reader for badges and tagged asset reading. The xTablet T1400 comes standard with all the I/O (USB 3.0, Ethernet, RS232, micro HDMI, microSD, u-blox NEO-6 GPS, and optional 4G LTE) capabilities needed and does not force elimination of productive combinations. Wrap it up with a screen protector, a hand strap, a briefcase handle, options for a 2-point or 4-point shoulder strap, desktop dock and vehicle dock gives the most productive, safe and comfortable solution for field workers.

The xTablet T1400 comes with a high performance, Intel (Bay Trail Platform) Celeron N2920 quad core processor, 4 gigabytes of RAM, and 64 gigabytes of high performance SSD. IT professionals will benefit from options to run Windows 8.1, 8.1 Professional or Windows 7 Professional for older applications while decreasing development and deployment time, and keeping support costs low. This fanless design enables a 19 millimeter thickness, IP65 sealing, and 4 foot MIL-STD-810G drop to handle those mobile outdoor applications with comfort. All of this not only lowers your cost of ownership, but MobileDemand is bringing it at a great price as well.

“At MobileDemand, we’re known for our ultra-rugged xTablets, but now with the xTablet T1400 you can have a rugged and sealed device that is half the thickness and half the weight of other rugged 10 inch tablets and about the same weight as a consumer tablet with a case and other accessories,” said Jon Rasmussen, senior director of product management and R&D, in a prepared statement. “If you’re looking for a mobile tablet which you can rely on day in and day out to keep your employees productive without unnecessary fatigue, then the xTablet T1400 series is the right tool for your job.”
