Arcadia, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2005

Contemporary MicroSystems has expanded our offerings by introducing rugged mobile computing solutions. We are pleased to annouce the release of a ruggedized tablet PC that meets the latest military and industrial durability standards and complies with sound environmental protection manufacturing procedures.

The AMT-6010 is a hand-held or in-vehicle computer designed to provide mobile applications and a real-time, wireless solution to access information from remote databases via the Internet or intranet. The AMT-6010 meets Mil-Std-810F, IP68 (which means it is totally waterproof and dustproof) and is manufactured according to RoHS procedures, making it ideal for applications performed in critical environments such as military, aerospace and marine.

The IP68 enclosure is made of high-quality aluminum alloy, plated with a hard-anodized finish that meets Mil-A-8625D specifications, providing an extremely durable and scratch-resistant coating. A dual sealing technique ensures that the AMT-6010 not only can operate while completely immersed in water, but also meets the most rigorous EMC compliance requirements.

The front panel has no screw holes and houses a 400-nit, 10.4” 800x600 resolution TFT LCD screen with capacitive touchscreen. It also features 12 programmable function keys. There is an optional 1200-nit, sunlight readable screen available.

Further testament to the AMT-6010’s ruggedness includes its ability to survive a 3-foot drop, operate in temperatures ranging from –20 to 60 degrees Centigrade, and resist severe shock (40Gs) and vibration (10Gs) levels.

As far as computing power goes, the AMT-6010 comes standard with an ultra low-voltage mobile Intel Pentium III 866MHz CPU, 128MB RAM (upgradeable to 640MB), and a 20GB hard drive (upgradeable to 120GB). There is 32MB of onboard video RAM. Standard communication devices on the AMT-6010 include 10/100BT LAN, wireless LAN and a 56K fax modem. There are options for wireless modem and Bluetooth support. Expansion capability includes a Type III PCMCIA card bus slot, a CompactFlash slot, and two USB 1.1 ports. There is an optional docking station that provides AC97 audio support, 4 USB 2.0 ports and 8 RS-232 serial ports.

Other options include a vehicle or wall mount, a USB hub, and a hard shell carrying case. The AMT-6010 can be powered by the built-in (but replaceable) 6-cell smart Lithium-ion battery or the 100-240VAC power adapter. The AMT-6010’s ruggedness is matched by its stylish design and sleek appearance. Weighing just 6.4 pounds with the battery, the unit measures 10.9” wide, 8.7” high and is only 2” deep.

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

Lilitab’s new kiosk configurator enables customers to design the perfect tablet kiosk system for their needs. The Lilitab Pro line of secure tablet kiosks comes with a wide selection of options, including tablet platform (Apple®, Android® or Windows®), mounting style, color, accessories and branding. The DIY design tool ensures customers have the opportunity to create and visualize several options before placing an order.

Lilitab’s mission is to help get touch screen tablet interactions into the hands of customers and businesses worldwide. Not content with selling one-size-fits-all imported enclosures, Lilitabs are custom assembled to order in the company’s warehouse in California. “We want our customers to create the perfect tablet kiosk system for their unique installation,” says Adam Aronson, Lilitab Founder and CEO.

Lilitab Pro tablet kiosk systems work with most 10” tablets on the market, including Apple iPads®, Samsung Galaxy Tabs®, Google Nexus®, and Microsoft Surface RT®. After choosing a tablet, customers are guided through several steps to design their own custom kiosk, including color, mount and kiosk style.

The Lilitab Pro line of tablet kiosk systems includes modular solutions for any mounting requirement. The Lilitab Floor Pro is an adaptable freestanding kiosk well suited for events, tradeshow booths and retail self-service stations. The Lilitab Counter Pro promotes optimized customer interactions with the swivel, tilt and rotate motions of the head unit on a tabletop kiosk. These are ideal reception and retail transaction stations. When combined with the optional base plate, the Counter becomes portable.

Lilitabs are available in fixed or removable head unit styles. The patented MagDock lock with pass-through power utilizes a snap-in dock for easy head unit installation and removal, all the while securing the entire kiosk with a custom key.

Lilitab accessories include headphone mounts and brochure holders for the Lilitab Floor models, and custom cut shipping cases for backdrop graphics for Lilitab Floor and Counter kiosks. The Liliswipe Magnetic Stripe Reader turns any iPad 2 or 3 into a self-service check-in or check-out station for retail, restaurants, hotels or hospitals.

Creating a custom look is easy with the many branding options available for Lilitab kiosks. The quick-change faceplates can be printed with seasonal or promotional graphics. Lilitab Floor kiosks stand out with banner graphics or backdrop graphics. Lilitab Counters look great with custom backdrop graphics for a permanent or temporary tabletop display.

Employee Mobility Creates Success in the Enterprise: Appointment-Plus Responds to CDW Survey that Shows Increased Tablet Usage in the Workplace

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

According to a June 23rd Computerworld article that summarized surveyed stats from technology provider CDW, 84 percent of employee respondents said tablets make them better multi-taskers at work.

And this helps them gain just over one hour in daily productivity.

When multiplied by the large number of workers enterprise-size companies typically employ, this increase in productivity time is dramatic. For example, many larger organizations that utilize Appointment-Plus enterprise scheduling software save tens of thousands of work hours each week.

Tablets let employees perform their tasks more efficiently, as they can access work-related applications on the go, said Stephen Booze, CIO of Appointment-Plus. People tend to be more productive when theyre not tied down to a single computer.

Tablets give them flexible options for managing and completing their job duties.

Among the tasks that large organizations such as automotive dealerships and service-based franchises can easily manage with tablets are customer appointments. Online scheduling software lets staff instantly view their calendars and book appointments in seconds.

Here are three reasons why enterprise scheduling software is the perfect fit with iPads and Android tablets.



Tablet Company with Unique Charitable Philosophy Enters the Market

Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) July 19, 2013

New tablet company, Abydos Innovations, launched in early 2013 and is aiming to be a business with a big difference. The company seeks to bridge the digital divide by making technology more accessible to more people by setting aside 10 percent of the sale of every tablet to go toward donations to charities and schools.

In celebration of its launch and unique philosophy, the company made an initial donation of 225 tablets to worthy causes, a value of $ 25,000, in the first quarter of 2013.

We sell powerful, light-weight Android tablets with all of the features that consumers have come to expect. But what makes us different is our philosophy we believe in giving back and sharing technology with as many people as we can, said Rick Human, president of Abydos Innovations.

The company is committed to providing affordable technology to everyone. The Abydos line of tablets offer many of the same features as the most desired models on the market, including HD screen resolution, Wi-Fi connectivity, and the ability to download thousands of Android apps in the Google Play store, as well as millions of books, music, movies, television shows, and other media.

Abydos commitment to greater access is summarized in their tagline of Buy Abydos & Give. Recipient programs have included The Oasis Church, the Blazin with Love 5K Run in support of the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, and additional houses of worship and schools. The company has set up a page on its website for individuals to register their favorite charity to receive a potential donation. Buy & Give.

The company is looking for charities that support a wide variety of people from children to the elderly, from those with physical or mental disabilities, to those who are economically disadvantaged. Technology can be costly, and Abydos Innovations seeks to make it more affordable for those purchasing and also offers donations to worthy causes.

The research is very clear access to technology can change lives. Children who have access do better in school and are better prepared for the modern workforce. The elderly who use technology are more connected and less isolated, leading to be a better quality of life, Human said.

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), 66 million Americans lack the basic skills to use computers and the Internet, yet more than 62% of American workers rely on the Internet to perform their jobs. A Federal Reserve study in 2008 found that teenagers with computer access at home have graduation rates that are six to eight percent higher than students who do not have computers.

Currently, the company is selling a 10.1-inch Wi-Fi enabled HD Android tablet with the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 operating system for the low price of $ 269.99. The company also has 7 and 8 inch tablets at equally reasonable prices. The website,, has recently been refreshed and offers simple navigation to allow customers to select the right tablet for them.

When computers or tablets are out of reach financially, we put our children at a serious disadvantage, Human said. At Abydos Innovations, were interested in bridging the digital divide to ensure everyone has the skills theyll need to be connected and be a part of the digital economy.

PowerNet Global, a telecommunications provider in Cincinnati, is partnering with Abydos Innovations to provide voice, Internet, and Wi-Fi services in addition to Abydos tablets for schools, churches, and similar institutions. Allison Stevens, Chief Executive Officer of PowerNet Global, said the company is pleased to be a part of Abydos mission.

We have a history of supporting the communities where we operate making donations and volunteering for organizations were passionate about. Were excited to be aligned with Abydos Innovations and fully support the Buy Abydos & Give philosophy, Stevens said.
