When it comes to choosing a tablet for your business, your workers want sleek consumer styling, while you need enterprise-class durability, data capture and accessories.

Your workers get a personal tablet that looks and feels just like their own, while you get a device family with the durability, ease-of-use, data capture capabilities and flexibility your business requires. Android provides instant familiarity, enabling rapid adoption and minimal training requirements — while Zebra’s powerful Mobility DNATM provides over a dozen highly valuable tools that boost business-class performance, ease-of-use, security and manageability above the competition.

ET51 Android Enterprise Tablet with Integrated 1D/2D Barcode Scanner

Built for All-Day Every-Day Business

Rugged and Ready to Use Indoors and Outside

Virtually nothing will stop this tablet — it’s built to handle drops to concrete and plywood, rain, snow, dust, extreme heat, subzero temperatures, spilled liquids and even a hose-down at full force. This ET51 model includes an ergonomically designed protective frame that provides a drop specification of 1.2 meters/4 feet to concrete surfaces. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass display provides shatter- and scratch-resistance, protecting one of the most vulnerable components on any tablet.

Best-In-Class Brightness and Your Choice of Screen Size

With the ET51, you get class-best brightness that makes the ET51 the easiest to read tablet in virtually any lighting conditions — including bright sunlight. This compact, small and light 8.4 inch model is ideal when size and weight are most important.

Advanced Touchscreen Technology

The high resolution screen delivers sharp text and clear graphics for superior readability. The touchscreen works with a finger — even with a glove — or a passive stylus for more precision. And even if the display is wet, every input mode works.

The Fastest Wireless Connections Wherever There's a Hot-spot

Multiple features boost WiFi network capacity, speed and range for unprecedented WiFi performance. 2x2 Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) allows access points to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously and shifts processing from mobile devices to access points, extending battery cycle time. WorryFree WiFi delivers near instant application response times, unmatched roaming performance, plus exceptional voice quality and network diagnostics — everything you need to maximize WiFi performance and workforce productivity. Bluetooth 5.0 delivers twice the speed and four times the range with less power compared to 4.x, so you can expect the best performance from your Bluetooth peripherals, including headsets and printers.

Advanced Data Capture

Advanced Enterprise-Class Scanning and More

With the integrated SE4710 scan engine, you can scan 1D and 2D barcodes, getting the performance that sets the industry bar for enterprise-class scanning. PRZM Intelligent Imaging and advanced algorithms deliver first-time, every-time, fast capture of virtually any barcode, in practically any condition — damaged, dirty or poorly printed. For occasional scanning, the integrated 13MP rear-facing color camera captures high resolution photos, videos, signatures and documents.1

Video Calls for On-The-Spot Help

The integrated 5MP front camera enables video calling over the WiFi or cellular network, allowing your workers to get instant help from a remote expert, co-worker or supervisor.

Customize Your Tablet with an Unmatched Accessory Family

The Most Charging Options

The unique ShareCradle provides space- and cost-efficiencies in the backroom by providing a common base to charge all your Zebra mobile computers and tablets — just insert the right cups for your devices in the charge bays. And docking station charging solutions offer three USB ports, Ethernet and HDMI, providing all the connectivity you need to use the ET51 as a desktop solution and more. It is also possible to charge the ET51/ET56 tablets via the side USB-C port when a simpler charging solution is needed.

Innovative Expansion Back to Add New Features

Simply replace the standard battery back with a compatible Expansion Back that adds a rotating hand strap and support for an auxiliary battery. The optional hot swappable battery can be added for around-the-clock power.

Mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) Support via Zebra Payment Expansion Backs

The ET51 8 in. tablet with integrated scanner also supports third-party payment expansion backs available from MTI to enable a fully mobile payment (mPOS) solution. Ingenico, Verifone, PAX and Miura payment terminals are supported, as well as magnetic swipe (MSR) and Smartcard reader options.
