AutoVitals has tested numerous tablets and one tablet stood out for all its product characteristics. We then decided to offer the Productivity Tool Warranty for this and only this tablet based on our Apple Certified Business Solution Provider Status and out test results.
The Productivity Tool Warranty guarantees for one year after receipt the replacement of a defective tablet by overnighting a replacement to the lower 48 states in the US and 2nd Air to Canada and Alaska and Hawaii. All you need to do is proving to our technical support that the malfunction is not caused by improper treatment of the tablet in your shop. Please send your original tablet back in the next 30 days, otherwise we will charge full price for it.
The only recommended tablet is currently an iPad Mini 2nd or 3rd generation
including a ruggedized and tested case.
Please order it here to benefit from the Productivity Tool Warranty.
Below is a list of selected tablet devices, which have been found to work. Tablets not listed below may work with AutoVitals applications and are supported but not tested for every release. Android tablets running on versions 5.0 Lollipop or higher and have a rear facing camera with autofocus are supported.
Any iPad of any size greater than 2nd generation hardware
|Google Nexus 9||The Nexus 9 has a 8.9″ screen is extremely clear and the 64-bit processor packs more enough power to get the job done and then some.|
Tablets NOT Supported
With so many new tablets on the market, there is a high chance that tablets are available, which are not a fit for high productivity use or flat out don’t work. Even established brand names are on the list of known misfits below:
- – Tablets without a rear facing auto focus camera are not supported
- – Android tablets running on versions of Android older than 5.0 Lollipop are not supported.
- – Full size iPads older than the iPad Air and first generation iPad minis. These tablets are not upgradable or have poor performance on the latest version of iOS.
- – Samsung Tab 2, Tab 3, Tab 4 and Tab A ( Have no auto focus camera and a slow drop-down feature)
- – All Kindle Fire tablets
- – ASUS Transformer TF300 and TS700 (They can not be upgraded to Android 4.4)
*NOTE: Recommendations are based on the current market condition. We do our best to keep it updated, but the tablet market releases new devices every day. The limiting factor in recommending a ruggedized tablet solution is the availability of the appropriate case
