At every CES, there’s a handful of products that keep the show floor buzzing and Samsung did not disappoint with its Galaxy Note Pro 12.2″ tablet. A tablet that stretches the 12-inch boundary is noteworthy, but what caught our attention is the impact it would have on products such as tablet cabinets. Many tablet cabinets on the market today will not accommodate a 12.2″ tablet; they simply weren’t designed for a device that large.
Aleratec introduced the Charge and Guard Secure Charge/Sync Cabinet 16 at this year’s CES, and we were pleased to learn about the plus-sized Samsung tablet. Unlike many of our competitors, Aleratec’s cabinet includes 16 compartments, each measuring 13″x10.5″x.9″. This leaves ample space for protective cases and larger tablets such as the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. The large compartments were not a happy accident but conceived during the design phase of the Charge and Guard Secure Charge/Sync Cabinet 16. A key factor for Aleratec engineers was designing an enclosure with enough compartments and enough space to accommodate increasing tablet sizes and bulky, protective cases. The extra space is a significant feature, especially for cash-strapped school systems or budget-minded companies who must stretch every dollar and stave off early obsolescence.
No one can truly predict what the next hot product will be or anticipate every design enhancement. However, we can count on the fact that technology will change and design products that remain valuable tools to our customers as long as possible. The Charge and Guard Secure Charge/Sync Cabinet 16 is an example of Aleratec’s commitment to this goal.
