The ET50/E55 Enterprise Tablet

Consumer styling on the outside, all business on the inside.

Finally, a flexible business tablet your customers can customize for just about any job and any environment — from retail associates and warehouse workers inside the four walls to salespeople, delivery drivers and service technicians out in the field.  You get the best of both worlds — consumer styling for employees plus all the enterprise class features and options your customers need to meet business needs: enterprise durability, constant battery power, choice of Android™ or Windows®, a rugged frame for extra durability in more demanding environments, two display sizes, GPS, NFC and fast Wi-Fi and cellular wireless connections — 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi with the ET50 and 4G LTE with the ET55.  When it comes to data capture, this tablet offers it all — two integrated cameras for image capture, bar code scanning and video calls; optional advanced scan engines and innovative Bluetooth scanners for comfortable intensive bar code capture; and three methods of data entry that work even if the screen is wet — an active or passive stylus or a finger, with or without a glove.

The ET50: WLAN Capability for Inside the 4 Walls
With 802.11 a/b/g/n/k/r WLAN capability, the ET50 is engineered from the inside out to handle all day everyday business use.  Whether it’s dropped or something gets spilled on it, workers will enjoy continuous reliable operation.  Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance allows the display to better survive the real world events that commonly cause glass failure.

The ET55: WAN Capability for Outside the 4 Walls
With LTE capability, the ET55 is engineered from the inside out to handle all day everyday business use.  Whether it’s used in the rain, snow, or in a very dusty area, workers will enjoy continuous reliable operation.  IP65 sealing provides a dust-tight design that can handle a hose-down at full force.  And while this tablet is built to handle a drop from 3.2 ft/1 m, you can nearly double the drop specification with the rugged frame.

Innovative Features

Innovative Features

Choice of Android™ or Windows 
Customers can choose the operating system (OS) that is right for their technology strategy: Windows 8.1 or Android 5.0.

Choose the size that's right for the job
The ET50/ET55 offers the flexibility to pick a display size that provides the right amount of real estate for particular business applications: an 8.3 inch, or 10.1 inch display.

Wi-Fi and 4G LTE support 
Inside the four walls, the ET50/ET55's support of 802.11a/b/g/n ensures compatibility with an existing WLAN. With 4G LTE support, the ET50/ET55 gives workers anywhere in the world a robust wireless connection on the world's fastest cellular networks.

First time, every time instant capture of virtually any type of data
No matter what type of data customers need to capture now or in the future, the ET50/ET55 is ready. The integrated 8MP rear camera is designed for occasional capture of bar codes and images, while the 2MP front camera is ideal for video calls. Optional advanced imaging engines* can be added to capture any 1D or 2D bar code, farther and faster—whether printed on paper or displayed on the screen of a mobile phone and regardless of being damaged, scratched or poorly printed. Advanced document capture technology makes it easier than ever to turn paper records into electronic documents, saving time and reducing errors.

Resets the bar for tablet power efficiency 
The ET50/ET55 offers extraordinary power efficiency. Not only is the quad core processor highly energy efficient, the LPDDR3 RAM memory technology cuts memory power consumption in half—without impacting memory bandwidth or performance. As a result, the ET50/ET55 uses just two watts for normal usage, compared to six watts needed by competitive processors in the same class and 15 watts for processors found in fully rugged enterprise tablets. With the ability to add a hot-swappable backup battery* that can provide additional power and charge the tablet's main battery, users will never need to run out of power during a shift.

Rugged and ready for work, inside and outdoors 
Zebra engineered the ET50/ET55 from the inside out to handle all day, every day business use. Whether a worker drops it, spills a drink on it, uses it in the rain, snow or dusty area, it continues to provide reliable operation. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™ allows the display to better survive real world events that most commonly cause glass failure. IP65 sealing provides a dust-tight design that can handle a hose-down at full force from any direction. While this tablet is built to handle a drop from 3.2 ft/1 m, users can nearly double the drop specification with Zebra's rugged frame.
