MiTAC launches MioWORK™ A90 tablet

World’s first pocket-sized tablet, optimally designed for both retail and hospitality

London, 17th April 2013 – MioWORK™, a brand of MiTAC International Corp., today launches the MioWORK™ A90 tablet device designed to meet the specialised needs of retail and hospitality professionals. The device is set to offer effective optimisation for today’s retail and hospitality work environments.

Designed for the retail and hospitality environment

The MioWORK™ A90 was designed after extensive research into the optimal width, height and weight for a device to be held in one hand. The A90 has a tough Polycarbonate surface and one metre drop resistance, while being IP54 rated for water resistance. The result is a genuine tough-but attractive handheld device for the retail and hospitality industries that can be carried and used comfortably throughout the working day.

Optimising the retail and hospitality work environment

The MioWORK™ A90 has a number of features that make it stand out as an innovative tablet for the retail and hospitality industry. It is equipped with a 5.88” bright touch screen, ideal for use by floor staff working inside or outside. The IP54 case is water and dust resistant, and can withstand multiple drops from a height of 1 Metre. The A90 is also flexible and programmable – the Android based operating system makes it easy to integrate into existing EPOS and Hospitality systems, and the Smart power/data cradles ensure the device is always ready for use. The 3 programmable hardware keys means the A90 can be tailored for the customer’s specific needs. With up to 6 hours battery life, the device is well suited for staff whose roles are mainly away from a desk.

“The launch of the MioWORK™ A90, based on extensive research into ideal handheld form, factor and design, is a new venture for MiTAC, but one that has the potential to make a significant impact on the retail and hospitality industries,” said Kieran Carroll, Senior Product Manager, Enterprise at MiTAC. “The A90 is designed to succeed where similar devices have failed – it is dedicated to retail and hospitality, robust and water-resistant, simple to use, allows for easy application integration and fits seamlessly into the retail and hospitality environments. The MioWORK™ A90 will make for quicker, more efficient and secure order taking and data collection, the results of which are improved systems and efficiency.”
