Part of running a successful company is having the right tools to maintain success. Knowing the latest in technology developments helps those in business stay on the cutting edge of success. Many companies choose to rent or lease technology products, gaining the benefit of useful technology without the liability, expense, and maintenance of ownership.
Staying current on the latest products and developments in technology ensures that your business is equipped to compete in today’s market. One of the main tools companies are using to succeed in all industries is the Android powered tablet.
Tablets are portable and convenient alternatives to the PC or laptop computer. They are essential for the CEO on the go, and have highly recommended uses for trade shows and conventions. They are typically lightweight, easily transported, and have a sleek and professional appearance.
There are several Android powered tablets that are recommended for corporate use. One of the popular choices among professionals is the Samsung Galaxy Tab. While similar to the Samsung Galaxy note series, the Tab series does not use the S-Pen stylus. The Samsung Tab series was originally introduced in 2010, and has since released several models of varying size.
The latest in the series was just recently released on the Samsung website in Germany, and is called the Galaxy Tab A. The newest model claims to be more powerful than previous model. The design is also more attractive than the older models. The newer tablet is lighter and thin, with a metal frame, and is available in black or white.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A has a quad core processor, and a 7 inch display screen with LCD technology. Previous versions of the Galaxy Tab are available in 8 and 9.7 inch screen sizes. If your business requires or can benefit from your taking quality photos, the 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera will be ideal for your needs. With 8 GB of storage, and expansion options for additional storage, you can handle large amounts of data and photo content.
The software used for the Galaxy Tab A is Android 5.1 Lollipop. Lollipop is a version of Android OS which was developed by Google. Its interface is built around Material design, and includes improvements to notifications and internal improvements, including improvements to the life and usage of battery. The new Samsung Tab’s battery has a long life, and can handle long term heavy duty usage throughout the day without going dead.
Another popular pick for the modern business person is the Motorola Xoom. The Xoom is an Android-based tablet computer by Motorola. The system running the Motorola Xoom is the Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which is a mobile OS designed for tablets from Google. The Motorola Xoom is frequently used for companies that utilize a lot of media and files. The internal makeup of the Xoom is ideal for running multiple projects or tabs at one time, and for working on complicated projects, as you would on a desktop or laptop.
Another popular and affordable tablet is the Acer Iconia. The most recent model is the Iconia Tab 10, which is known for being durable and easily transported. The Iconia has a sensitive touch screen that allows easy writing and sketching, but the glass is durable and tough to prevent shattering or cracking. The tablet is specifically designed for easy sharing, making it perfect for trade shows and conventions, especially if you are using a big screen display.
The final product on our list of recommended tablets for professional users is the Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1. This tablet is unique in its web optimization, and comes with the latest in Flash content support. For professionals who need large amounts of storage, advanced graphics or video quality access, the Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 provides the advanced and superior technology to handle your needs. The IdeaPad also has sharing capabilities to use for multiple users and interactions, as well as presentations. Advanced technology like this comes at a price, and the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 can be around $499.00 to purchase.
Finding a quality tablet can be pricey, and if you are looking to provide tablets for your company or to use at a trade show or convention, the cost can be significant. To reduce this cost, rental programs are available. Renting rather than buying has many benefits. For one, it’s less expensive. In addition to cost, you have working equipment that can be regularly repaired and updated by the rental company.
This is a benefit for both long term and short-term rentals. One of the largest benefits is that you will always keep your business on the cutting edge of technology. Rental companies constantly update their inventory, and can recommend the product that works best for your company and needs.
