Google Android is slowly making its way into the enterprise, and Motorola is continuing the drive with the ET1 tablet. Motorola is targeting the ET1 strictly at business, particularly the retail sector, and it resembles some of the rugged tablets we kick around at TabletPCReview more than the Xoom or any other Android tablet.
The 7-inch ET1 will be powered by an OMAP 4 1GHz dual-core processor and have 4GB of storage, expandable to 32GB through the microSD card slot. It will have 1GB of RAM, a USB 2.0 port and HDMI out. It will support Wi-Fi at launch. The ET1 will be rugged, complete with Gorilla Glass capacitive touchscreen (1024 x 600), and weigh 1.4 pounds, which is closer to today’s slick tablets than it is their rugged counterparts.
The ET1 will have an eight megapixel front-facing camera and a front-facing shooter for 720p video. As an enterprise tablet, buyers will be able to outfit it with a barcode reader and a host of other warehouse goodies.
Motorola did not announce pricing, though claimed the ET1 will be available in Q4 2011.
