Two Choices for Enterprise Grade 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless Networking

The Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 135 single band (2.4 GHz), 1x1 adapter delivers up to 150 Mbps (depending on network infrastructure), a 300% increase compared to 54 Mbps 802.11 a/b/g solutions. Plus with extended range, more consistent connectivity and unique Intel features including Intel® My WiFi Technology support and Wi-Fi Direct, you'll be confident you can connect to wireless networks where you work.

Optimized for Intel Processors: The Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 135 wireless networking adapter leverages Intel® processor capabilities to deliver smarter performance.

The Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), 2x2 adapter delivers up to 5x greater bandwidth (up to 300 Mbps depending on network infrastructure) compared to 54 Mbps 802.11 a/b/g solutions, extended range, more consistent connectivity and unique Intel features including Intel® vPro™ and Intel® My WiFi Technology support.

Greater Network Compatibility: Dual Band allows connectivity at 2.4 GHz to access older 802.11b/g networks and 5 GHz for higher speeds and greater network capacity. A broad range of support for all popular security protocols and Cisco Compatible Extensions v4 means connecting to a wireless network is smooth and easy.

Up to 2x greater range: Featuring MIMO, diversity and support for the multiple antennae inside the Sahara Slate PC, reduces the number of “dead zones”, network reconnects, and dropped data packets; dramatically improves connectivity and enables more consistent coverage in the enterprise.

Low Power: Optimized power modes (sleep states) reduce power consumption during periods of inactivity enabling long battery life for greater mobility.

Bluetooth® 4.0 LE Dual Mode Wireless Connectivity

Bluetooth® technology is a short-range wireless radio technology that allows a broad range of electronic devices such as keyboards, mice, headphones and printers to connect and communicate wirelessly over distances of up to 10m. Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy is a power efficient protocol that targets effective communication with devices that do not require streaming data or high data throughput. The Bluetooth 4.0 LE Dual Mode adapter in the Sahara NetSlate a525 can communication with both standard Bluetooth devices as well as the newer, low energy devices. This translates to smart, wireless connectivity from your Sahara NetSlate to an even wider variety of peripherals than ever before.

Enhanced Data Security with TPM

Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) helps proactively establish more trusted relationships for remote or local access through secure user authentication and machine attestation. TPM chips protect encryption keys and digital signature keys to maintain data confidentiality and integrity. TPM chips are designed to protect key operations and other security tasks that would otherwise be performed on unprotected interfaces in unprotected communications. Especially important, TPM chips are specifically designed to protect platform and user authentication information from software-based attacks. They are designed to enhance platform security beyond the capabilities of software-only solutions.

Pair the Sahara NetSlate a525 with Microsoft® Windows® 7 Ultimate and the BitLocker Full Drive Encryption technology will use the TPM to generate and store its key to make your data even safer than with the software alone.

TPM solutions can help play a strong role in assuring compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to protect medical records, as well as Graham-Leech-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations that impose strict privacy and security requirements.

Connect in More Ways than with Any Other Atom Tablet

As a true PC, the Sahara NetSlate a525 features an array of standard Input/Output ports that are critical for real-world business productivity not typically found on other tablets with Atom processors. These include two full-sized USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and standard 3.5mm stereo audio in and separate 3.5mm stereo audio out. Keyboards, mice, cameras, smartphones, audio microphones, stereo headphones, external hard drives, media card readers, and networking switches, can all be hooked up to the Sahara NetSlate a525 for added flexibility and usability. Additionally, by using the Sahara NetSlate's VESA compatible Docking Cradle or Docking plate, you can add VGA Video out to drive monitors, projectors and more.

Take Control of Legacy Equipment with True RS-232 Serial Connectivity

Yes, you read right: The new Sahara NetSlate a525 Tablet PC can be optionally configured with an RS-232 serial port* to enable control and communication with hundreds of legacy devices still in use today in many industries. This is a true serial controller, and not emulated via USB, for maximum compatibility. No more drops. No more freezing. No more frustration.

* Available as special order options for large deployments, private label or OEM customers. Talk to your sales representative for pricing, MOQs and availability.

Bigger Screen, Larger Desktop, Viewable Outdoors

The Sahara NetSlate a525 offers an indisputable edge for professionals looking to maximize work space real estate in an ergonomically designed mobile device. Featuring a full 12.1 inch, LED backlit LCD with 180° viewing angle and 1280x800 HD 16x10 wide screen display; spreadsheets, web pages and e-mail are easier to read while videos and photos look bright and crisp. Unlike traditional CFL displays, LED backlighting means you have a beautiful, full uniformly bright image that takes virtually no time to display.

Interact with Pen or Touch or Both*

Tablet PCs with touch screens and digitizers offer a more ergonomic "on-the-go" computing experience than a standard laptop. Due to their unique form factor, slate-style tablets with these input screens reduce the space required to operate the computer when compared to systems using a traditional mouse, trackpad or keyboard. In addition, they offer a more natural and intuitive user interface experience, especially while standing up or walking around.

Active digitizers use a pen for input which offers mouse-like pointer interaction and support for Digital Inking Technology's highly accurate handwriting recognition and signature capture. Touch screens work simply with the input tool you've been using since you were born—a finger—allowing you to point to and tap on whatever you want to use. The Sahara NetSlate can be equipped with either of these screen technologies or both together in an intelligently designed panel that automatically senses which type of input you want to use and switches modes automatically for maximum convenience and efficiency.

The active digitizer for pen input on the Sahara NetSlate is manufactured by the world's leader in pen computing technology, Wacom. These digitizers are highly accurate, compatible with all leading imaging and design software, and are the number one choice of tablet input for artists and designers worldwide. Additionally, Wacom electromagnetic active digitizers do not require a battery powered pen to operate—like some other manufacturers' digitizers—which further supports true mobility in the field. Digitizers are a superior solution for detailed drawing, handwriting recognition and signature capture, and support adjustable pressure sensitivity for total flexibility.

Additionally, along with the Sahara Slate PC a510, the Sahara NetSlate a525 is the only Atom based Tablet PC available with an optional dual mode screen* that features both an active digitizer along with either a passive resistive 5-wire touch screen (for maximum input flexibility and usability) or a projective capacitive touch screen (that supports feather light touch input and multi-touch capabilities). This means that you can standardize your installation on one Tablet PC platform and outfit each system with the type of screen that best fits your users' specific needs.

* Available as special order options for large deployments, private label or OEM customers. Talk to your sales representative for pricing, MOQs and availability.

Virtually Unlimited Battery Power

Unlike consumer tablets that offer embedded, non-removable batteries, the Sahara NetSlate a525 uses two user-replaceable and rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries that are hot swappable. This means not only can you potentially run your Sahara NetSlate a525 continuously for a virtually unlimited amount of time, you don't even have to power down or put the system into hibernation mode to swap out used batteries for fresh, charged ones. Also, over time, all batteries lose their ability to hold a charge. When this happens with a tablet that contains an internal battery, you either live with the reduced battery life or buy a new tablet. With the Sahara NetSlate a525, you simply buy a new battery and you're as good to go as the day you powered on the tablet for the very first time.

TabletKiosk Modular Expansion System

Extra features and peripherals used in specialized industries—such as hospitality, retail sales and healthcare—can really drive up the expense when purchasing a computer. Additionally, what works for one company might not work for another. So why should you pay for something you'll never need or use? That's why the Sahara NetSlate a525 is equipped with TabletKiosk's Modular Expansion System.

With the TabletKiosk Modular Expansion System you have the option of integrating the add-on modules you need; such as a Magnetic Stripe Reader, 3G WWAN Data Module or 2D/1D Barcode Scanner. Additionally, the specifications of the TabletKiosk Modular Expansion port are available, at no cost, to partners who want to create their own custom modules. This means that even companies with a need for highly specific functionality can use a Sahara NetSlate to get the job done.

User Upgradeable Memory...

Thought you had purchased your Sahara NetSlate with enough memory? Enough data storage? Discovered later that you didn't? Perhaps, you are now running more applications simultaneously than you had envisioned when you first made your purchase and you wish you had more system memory? Can't stand waiting for your system to boot up? Perhaps it's time to upgrade that hard drive to a much speedier Solid State Drive.

...and Storage

With consumer grade tablets you'd likely need to purchase a whole new system if you wanted more storage or memory. That quickly translates to unexpected costs and lower return on your investment. The Sahara NetSlate a525 features user accessible and upgradeable memory and storage, so doubling that 2.0 GB to 4.0 GB or swapping out that 40 GB Solid State Drive for a larger one or even a super-sized 1.0TB Hard Drive is no problem. Sahara NetSlate Tablet PCs are designed to scale to meet your increasing technological demands.

Quality, Reliability and Expert Service

As one of the original pioneers of true tablet technology, TabletKiosk has been selling enterprise class, slate-style Tablet PCs since 2003. The Sahara NetSlate a525 represents the third incarnation of the Sahara NetSlate brand. As enterprise class devices, these new Sahara NetSlates are exceptionally stable and are designed to run reliably for many years. The average product lifecycle of a TabletKiosk device is 24 - 36 months (by comparison, the average lifecycle for many consumer devices ranges from 6 – 18 months). That means that if you deploy TabletKiosk systems today and decide to purchase additional units at a later date, you'll still be able to get the same model, minimizing additional IT expenses integrating and testing a whole new platform.

All Sahara NetSlate Tablet PCs undergo stringent quality control from the day they are originally built to the day they are shipped to the customer. This starts at the factory, where they are fabricated and then hand-assembled. Then, before leaving the factory, all units are subjected to both a hand inspection and 24 hour burn-in testing. They are then inspected again by our TabletKiosk QC staff in Taiwan before they are shipped to our warehouse in the United States.

Once in the US, all Tablet PCs are inspected for shipping damage and then configured to exact customer specifications. The units then undergo a final QC test before being packaged up and shipped through our authorized distribution channel.

Should customers encounter any technical issues with their Sahara NetSlate, they can call TabletKiosk's technical support team located in the corporate offices in Torrance, California to obtain assistance from a knowledgeable and courteous company employee. Support personnel work on TabletKiosk products, and only TabletKiosk products all day, every day. TabletKiosk does not outsource any of its support to third party help desk services. At TabletKiosk, our goal is to provide you with stellar, first class support for an excellent overall customer experience.
