This is an interesting idea except for two major factors: 1) most companies will not only have to invest in the hardware, but also in developing or re-developing their corporate software for the new interface. This takes time and money. 2) touch screens don't work with gloves, so using this to replace other ruggedized hardware in certain jobs or regions where people often wear gloves is going to make things more annoying. I mean, I'd love to see this adopted by someone like Best Buy for their sales staff, inventory personnel and other staff. But I hardly see this in an industrial or outdoor environment (especially up here in Canada where gloves are necessity for outdoor work for half the year or more). Neat idea, but it's going to take guts for a VP to give the go ahead to adopt something like this on a large scale.

Nice to see a rugged tablet that is truly ready for the workplace -- and not only for the workplace. I think many consumers will also be interested in a nearly unbreakable tablet, and I totally get why MOT is following the usual CE cycle here, getting it out in time for the Christmas season.

Yes and I believe that it is in this half of the company (note that MOT split into two, with Mobility purchased by Google).

I wonder if it's got a "dual identity" OS like the Atrix, Photon, and Bionic when they are placed in appropriate docks?

This all makes sense and gives some confidence that MOT might survive, until I got to the last sentence: "...the ET1 will be available in time for Christmas in the fourth quarter of 2011" Why would an enterprise-targeted tablet be tied to the consumer holiday buying season? Is my boss going to buy me one and put it under the tree? Very curious...

Not many details were revealed about the software "hardening," but the hardware itself is supposedly hardened from dropping--even on a concrete floor!

Tablet is more or less a generic device like a computer. Other than hardening the cases to minimize the damage through physical impact, what is the greatest features that you would demand? How is the feature so special that it may not be available in a mass-market tablet (aka consumer grade)? I am very interested in knowing more about the "hardened" secure version of Android.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
