Whilst Android’s success has been more prominent in the consumer market since it launched in September 2008, it is proving itself as a viable and beneficial alternative to other operating systems in the business environment. Android is not only flexible and simple to use, it provides a low cost, customisable product that is ideal for high tech devices.
Android is open source and free, the operating system and applications can be freely downloaded, allowing developers to customise or create bespoke solutions to suit the user, device or industry. A growing number of field-based operators are using rugged Android devices due to its flexibility, user friendly touch interface, growing number of apps available and longer battery life.
Janam is currently adopting the Android platform in its new product range. The new XT1 is Janam’s first rugged tablet designed to complement Janam’s range of rugged handheld devices. In today’s mobile workforce access to information “anywhere, anytime” is imperative and has been a catalyst for the continued growth in tablet adoption. The next few years are expected to see businesses transform their IT processes and increase productivity through the use of flexible and rugged handheld solutions.
The familiarity of smart devices at home and the heavy, bulky and expensive rugged options available on the market for field workers has left a gap in the market. Janam’s XT1 bridges the gap between the two by offering a device with all the functionality of a smartphone, with a brilliant 5.9” WVGA display combined in a lightweight, rugged and sleek mini tablet.
With an IP54 rating and a drop spec of 1m, the XT1 excels in the most rigorous environments making it ideal to support demanding enterprise applications in field sales, field service, healthcare, hospitality and retail environments.
Over the coming months, Janam will be expanding their rugged handheld Android product suite. The new products will be available to view at our Meet the Manufacturer 2015 event which will be held on Wednesday 25th February at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire.
