Last month, Google released the results of its latest platform usage tests and revealed that Marshmallow 6.0 is the most widely used OS on Android devices. And we can only expect those usage rates to continue their upward trend thanks to an upgrade made to Xplore’s flagship Android tablet last week:
The XSLATE D10, often referred to as the “Android Champion” of its 10.1” fully rugged tablet class, is now shipping with the Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow OS.
That means that a vast number of mobile workers worldwide are going to enjoy “critical new computing functionality that will lead to performance and efficiency gains”, while their employers gain an even greater return on their overall mobility investment (ROI). Here’s why:
is just fundamentally “sweeter” in so many ways.
Specifically, it provides
critical security, power management and mobile device management enhancements
that aren’t as uniformly accessible with other OS options. It also increases
the value of
“Android for Work” solutions in professional environments.
- The power,
performance, and security of rugged tablets that run the Marshmallow OS
Take the new XSLATE D10: upgrading the OS from 5.1,
Lollipop, to Marshmallow improved the rugged tablet’s battery life by more than
10 percent, extending the use time beyond 8 hours. Even the hot-swappable
second battery’s use time increased, offering up to 22 hours of continuous work
time. Plus, the numerous enhancements made to the Android for Work and Voice
Assist APIs with Marshmallow mean that the rugged tablet’s users enjoy faster
application responsiveness and, subsequently, greater worker efficiency. The
expanded data security and encryption features make the tablet’s overall appeal
rating – and ROI – rise as well, especially when the built-in security features
such as biometric and SmartCard/CAC authentication options are jointly
- Android OS upgrades aren’t disruptive – if the mobile computing device itself is flexible enough to facilitate the corresponding performance, security, and control enhancements. With the XSLATE D10 OS upgrade, companies are going to be able to “maintain the Android-defined flexibility they mandate within their mobile IT environments”.
