Enterprise tablet with native Linux support
With the arrival of spring Russian developer and manufacturer Mobile Inform Group decided to please the market with the announcement of a brand new line of corporate mobile devices.
Key features of the new product line:
- ARM-architecture with an optimal ratio of performance and power consumption, as well as user-friendly ergonomics;
- native Linux support, which will allow porting any Linux operating system with kernel above 5.10 to the device and ensuring seamless integration into the customer’s existing Linux infrastructure;
- uncompromising information security by eliminating the need to use AOSP during porting;
- 5+ years of reliability and longevity due to the use of industrial components with long life cycle (10+ years) and high maintainability, allowing the devices to be serviced without compromising performance.
The lineup will include a lightweight smartphone and tablet for corporate use, as well as a ruggedized smartphone and tablet for harsh environments, including explosive environments.
The first swallow of the new lineup will be the lightweight 11-inch MIG LT11 tablet on Astra Linux Special Edition. Ergonomic, lightweight tablet weighs only 480 grams. This device will fundamentally expand the scope of application of MIG products, as it is designed for corporate use, but in mild operating conditions.
«We expect that the product will be in demand in the public, financial and retail sectors, as well as suitable for universal use by office employees from all sectors of the economy. The tablet is stylish, lightweight, convenient, yet reliable and, like any MIG, will withstand years of intensive use,» says Anna Mantsvetova, Commercial Director of Mobile Inform Group.
«During the last two years we have done really great work, and today we are ready to announce to the market a fundamentally new approach to the development of corporate mobile devices. In simple words, we have provided the possibility of a direct dialog between the Russian operating system and hardware without the «Android layer». With our devices, customers can be sure that there are no undeclared features. In addition, MIG LT11 can be used as a hybrid automated workplace for employees, i.e. they can move from a full-fledged stationary workplace with a large monitor, mouse and keyboard to a light and compact mobile workplace with the same set of information and applications. It is a dream of any employee who works both in the office and out in the field,» says Konstantin Mantsvetov, CEO of Mobile Inform Group.
«MIG LT11 is the first device in Russia, originally designed and realized for use with Astra Linux OS. Both our teams have been working side by side on its development, including porting of the operating system, since the first day, mutually influencing both the design and technical decisions made in the development of the tablet and the composition and functionality of the OS. We expect high interest from our customers in this product and its active application in the mobile segment of information systems for various purposes,» commented Shukhrat Makhmadiev, Technical Project Manager of Astra Group of Companies.
