Technical Articles & Industry Trends
Reliability and versatility of the mobile computing market has been making fast advances in recent years. Teguar and other computer companies are learning what businesses need and what types of solutions are best for differing applications. Recently in a Modern Materials Handling Article, Teguar CTO, Bryce Keeney, commented on some of the challenges regarding mobility. “Although the form factor excited them, many customers underestimated the software implications of moving to a tablet from a fixed terminal with large screen, keyboard and mouse." Software user experience is one consideration among many. There are many key considerations when choosing which mobile computing solution to go with.
The table below gives a quick overview of pros and cons of three main solutions: Rugged Tablets, Rugged Laptops and a Hybrid Solution.
Overall, the use case scenario will determine the best fit. Tablets are a fast-developing product group, so expect upgrades and advancements every year. One of the most important things to consider is how they fit into your overall computer hardware infrastructure. Since they depend on a wireless connection, they will need to maintain a dependable and secure connection. Consider form factor and resolution as this is always important for user experience and software compatibility.
