The recent Google upgrade to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is the most widely used operating system on Android devices, exactly why the Xplore Xslate D10 fully rugged Android tablet is now loaded and ready to go with this new operating system. So, why does this matter? Android Marshmallow has several new features that make rugged tablet functionality even better. With the surge of mobile workers today these critical upgrades will make employees more productive and efficient — who doesn’t want that?
Check out the reasons this new upgrade is pretty darn “sweet” —
- The upgrade to Android Marshmallow on the Xslate D10 provides critical security, power management and mobile device management enhancements that aren’t as uniformly accessible with other operating system options.
- Numerous enhancements made to Android for Work and Voice Assist APIs with Marshmallow mean that the rugged tablet’s users enjoy faster application responsiveness and, subsequently, greater worker efficiency. The expanded data security and encryption features make the tablet’s overall appeal rating and the return on investment rise — especially when the built-in security features such as biometric and SmartCard/CAC authentication options are jointly considered. The power, performance, and security Marshmallow offers will significantly increase mobile worker productivity.
- The new Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow operating system improves the battery life of the Xplore XSLATE D10 rugged tablet more than 10 percent, extending the use time beyond 8 hours. A hot-swappable second battery option provides up to 22 hours of continuous work time.
Why buy the Xplore Xslate D10? — It may seem like you’re saving money when you buy a less-expensive off-the-shelf tablet PC for your military, factory, manufacturing company, public safety, energy, transportation, or field service. However, put a non-ruggedized tablet to work on an oil rig, in a warehouse, on a fleet truck without shocks – or anywhere water, dust, vibrations, fuels, grease, or salt fog are prevalent and the device will fail in a short amount of time.
When deciding on what to buy, an Android rugged tablet proven to work well within the work environment can notably improve your entire mobility solution’s total cost of ownership and improve your bottom line.
