The xTablet T7200 runs Windows 7 Professional and comes with the latest Intel Atom processor with Dual Core which provides better CPU and disk performance to handle graphic and data intensive applications.
Prior to the new MobileDemand carrier independent USB expansion modules, users could not easily change carriers with traditional integrated wireless radio modems. Nor could customers upgrade to new modems on their own making it difficult to migrate to new technologies. They were also far more expensive than certified USB modems from the carriers. Users of the MobileDemand USB expansion modules not only save on the up front modem costs, they can also save up to 60% on bundled data plans available through the carriers and never have to worry about outdated wireless technology.
MobileDemand’s new small, USB expansion modules are secured safely to the back of the xTablet and maintain the tablet’s overall ruggedness and sealing. The USB expansion modules have screws in the lid so that a customer can open them, connect a USB modem to the internal USB cable and then put the lid back on for a sealed and fully rugged WWAN solution. The USB expansion modules can even be added tablets after the initial deployment without WWAN.
For companies considering implementing 3G, 4G or LTE wireless for their mobile workers, now is a great time to deploy due to new technology such as the MobileDemand USB expansion modules and the potential cost savings through the wireless carriers.
“Older WWAN technologies were just not getting the job done for those enterprise operations that want to be connected but don’t want to sacrifice performance,” says Jon Rasmussen, Senior Director of Product Management at MobileDemand. “Our new USB expansion module is going to relieve a lot of headaches as users can easily change modems, switch carriers and save money. Also, for those users working in harsh work settings, the module will not break if the tablet is dropped or exposed to various environmental elements. “
