Custom Rugged Tablet


InHand is an award-winning industry leader of power-optimized handheld and rugged device designs offering a great alternative to custom mobile solutions with customized tablets. While commercially available tablets often lack key features or peripherals required by military, medical, and industrial markets, InHand’s custom tablets are built to customer specifications. Unlike commercial devices, InHand’s custom tablets can be designed to: excel in rugged environments, withstand drops and liquid immersion, accommodate restricted or specialized software configurations, respond to centralized fleet management software, and/or have a specific look and feel.

Each custom tablet design is based on a verified InHand tablet; standard hardware, software, and mechanical operation has been completely debugged and validated. Peripherals, external connections, display resolution/size, enclosure, operating system, software configuration, and/or docking station can be modified and built to spec. Once built, the InHand Device Manager (IDM) software suite is available to manage your tablet fleet. The IDM allows administrators to monitor and track device use and update software configurations in real time, as needed. And with InHand’s proven development process, your customized tablet is delivered from prototype to production at a lower cost, on a quicker schedule and with minimal risk.

On stadard and custom tablets, InHand offers over-the-air (OTA) updates via the InHand Device Manager (IDM), simplifying the task of maintaining device software in the field.
