Rumor: Motorola working on a tablet aimed at the enterprise

Engadget is reporting that Motorola is hard at work (pun so intended) on a tablet for the enterprise. Motorola plans to build the “first physical embodiment defining Android for the Enterprise”. It seems the tablet will launch with Gingerbread and it’ll enter the beta-testing phase this October. I understand this product won’t be aimed at the average consumer but launching a tablet running Gingerbread almost a year from now is like announcing a phone running Eclair — makes no sense. Anyhow, the tablet will feature:

  • 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera “with illumination and aiming” for barcode scanning
  • Dual-core 1GHz OMAP 4 CPU
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM
  • 7-inch LCD display
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, and USB connectivity
  • Battery should support five and a half hours of streaming video
  • Rugged build able to survive four foot drop, extreme temperatures, excessive dust, and splashing water

So, even though this is not aimed at us Android enthusiasts, do you see yourself buying this tablet?

    I don’t get the pun… Does motorola have a boner while at work?

      I actually thought the same thing. I am guessing “work” is associated with being an enterprise focused tablet. Regardless, Motorola should be focused on a fully functional Xoom. This is the problem with technology companies, they focus on $$$ rather than providing quality merchandise. What a fn joke..

      Ha nice one. But no, it’s what kretz said.

    Wow!? I guess this is Motorola focusing on their own in house software. Gingerbread in October? That sounds pretty stale, and I for one won’t eat it! (lame pun intended) Talk about being hungry to fail.

    Don’t forget to set the price so high that even enterprises don’t see the point in buying them.
