1. Your choice of features

Zebra takes pride in offering custom solutions to address various business challenges, and this commitment is evident in the features of the ET40 and ET45 tablets.

Both options provide flexibility when it comes to display size. You can choose between an 8-inch or a 10-inch display. The 8-inch screen is ideal for workers who need a more compact, easily maneuverable tablet. On the other hand, the 10-inch display offers a larger viewing area, allowing users to see everything on one screen without constantly switching between apps or zooming in and out.

Regardless of the size you choose, both options deliver a high-definition resolution of 1920 x1200 pixels and a brightness of 500 nits. Unlike some tablets designed for rugged work environments, Zebra doesn’t compromise on screen quality. These displays are protected by tough Corning Gorilla Glass, ensuring durability and longevity.

In terms of connectivity, the ET40 is Wi-Fi-only, while the ET45 adds cellular LTE (5G/3G/2G) to the Wi-Fi capabilities. If your work primarily takes place in smaller areas with strong internet infrastructure, the ET40 may suffice. However, if you need connectivity beyond company premises or in larger warehouses or outdoor settings, the ET45’s cellular capabilities become essential.

2. Business-class lifecycle

When companies incorporate the ET40 or ET45 tablet into their electronics fleet, they can count on long-lasting performance. Zebra ensures this through robust build quality, a six-year support period following the initial sales date, and continued availability of models for three years after purchase—ensuring replacements and ongoing support.

Zebra offers OneCare Essential and Select support services, that goes beyond standard warranties, providing comprehensive assistance, ongoing support, repairs, maintenance plans, and more—all tailored to meet company needs and budgets. Zebra’s “Peace-of-Mind Plans” allow companies to focus on their core work without worrying about device-related issues.

3. Mobility DNA

Zebra Technologies, as a mobile computing company, focuses on leveraging data to provide valuable insights, enhance enterprise security, and manage assets effectively. One of their key offerings is the Mobility DNA software suite, which is exclusively accessible when working with Zebra devices such as the ET40 and ET45 tablets.

What sets Mobility DNA apart is that the Mobility DNA Professional integrated solutions come pre-loaded and pre-licensed on these tablets. This not only streamlines the deployment process but also contributes to cost savings when budgeting for technology solutions.
