The ET60 and ET65 are Zebra’s first 2-in-1 Android tablets with a friction-hinge keyboard that transforms the tablets into a laptop to make heavy data entry easy in the office and in the field. The products feature consumer styling that can handle harsh indoor and outdoor environments from sub-zero cold to extreme heat. The tablets are dustproof, corrosion proof and tested for vibration, thermal shock, and solar radiation. Two of the most vulnerable tablet elements – the display and optional scanner exit window – are protected with shatter-and scratch-resistant Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass.

“As the global leader in enterprise-grade mobile computing solutions, we are excited to introduce the ET6x series of rugged Android tablets,” said Julie Johnson, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies. “Zebra’s latest generation of tablets combine everywhere connectivity, security, quality design, and powerful processing capabilities with versatile accessories to help our customers and partners meet their business needs—even better than before.”

The ET6x series is built to run enterprise applications in the most demanding environments. This includes warehouses where – according to Zebra’s Global Warehouse Vision Study – the implementation of rugged tablets is expected to increase by 92% over the next three years. The ET6x series runs on the Qualcomm® QCS6490 processor with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, more memory, industry-leading advanced range barcode scanning and one of the highest capacity field replaceable batteries available today.

“Utilizing AI and machine learning in field service environments can have a lasting impact on the efficiency of warehouses and manufacturing plants across the globe,” said Juho Sarvikas, Vice President & President, North America, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “This collaboration between Zebra and Qualcomm Technologies has resulted in an innovative solution that is among the most powerful in its class.”
