Tablet computers are commonly used in warehouse operations not only for workers on the floor, but also on vehicles such as forklifts. Warehouse conditions require tablets to be rugged and durable to survive the rigors of a fast-paced operation. In addition, the rugged tablets need to be designed in a way that promotes movement and mobility throughout the warehouse floor. Typically, tablets are mounted on the warehouse vehicles which means they need to be tough enough to handle the vibrations from the vehicle and easy access for removal and quickly placed back on for transport.
