Zebra ET80

Rugged 2-in-1 Windows Tablet

As first responders, field service technicians and manufacturing line workers, your work provides the essentials that are fundamental to a thriving community. People depend on you. You need a mobile device you can trust to perform flawlessly, anywhere, so you can too. Empower your best work with Zebra’s new ET80 and ET85 Rugged 2-in-1 Windows Tablets.

Available as a standalone tablet, or with a detachable keyboard to provide a true 2-in-1, the ET80 and ET85 offer the flexibility your workforce demands.

They’re thin and lightweight yet rugged to work wherever you do – in a vehicle, in the field or inside a facility. Stay connected to the information and people you need with advanced wireless connectivity.

Thin and light — redefined

These rugged 2-in-1 tablets set the bar when it comes to portability — they are greater than 35% thinner and 20% lighter than major 2-in-1 competitors with the same screen size. When the tablet is placed in a vehicle dock, the low profile provides drivers with maximum visibility for improved safety, as well as easy access to information-rich screens.

Unmatched versatility — 2 devices in 1

The ET80 and ET85 are true laptop replacements, with a level of flexibility no laptop can provide. Go from tablet to laptop and back in seconds by simply attaching and detaching the rugged keyboard. Use it as a standalone tablet for maximum mobility. Need to enter a lot of data? Just attach the keyboard with its friction hinge, allowing the screen to be placed at any angle — instead of a limited number of pre-set angles. And with the universal dock, the tablet transforms into a desktop in the office or a mobile workstation in a police car, truck, forklift and more.

A display that’s all business

The large 12 in. screen and its 3:2 ‘all business’ aspect ratio provides more real estate to display more information, improving productivity and ease of use. The screen is easy to view indoors and outside, even in bright sunlight. The touchscreen works when wet and with gloves. And with a keystroke, conceal mode instantly turns off the display and keyboard backlight for safety and data privacy.

Built-in protection prevents unauthorized access

Keep your tablets secure while giving users easy, instant access. Every model includes the Windows Hello camera for facial recognition or add the optional fingerprint reader, enabling easy two-factor authentication.
