Shopping for an Android kiosk tablet is challenging.
Frequently, when choosing a tablet device for your kiosk, the thinking tends to be that you must either accept a poor user experience on extremely inexpensive, unsupported Android hardware, or pay a large premium for consumer-grade devices that have features and capabilities not used in a kiosk.
The Lenovo K10 represents a good balance of premium Android tablet features and business-conscious decisions for the kiosk use case to keep cost in check.
Lenovo K10 kiosk tablet specs
The Lenovo K10 uses a 64-bit octa-core CPU, 10″ full HD display, expandable microSD storage, Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, dual Dolby Audio speakers, and high-resolution front and rear cameras (with flash). This makes the K10 an ideal platform for a massive spectrum of kiosk, point of sale, and other dedicated device use cases. It’s ruggedized for demanding environments, too, making it a more reliable investment than the off-the-shelf Android tablet hardware you’d find on the generic resale market.
Specs, of course, don’t tell a full product story. The K10 ships with Android 11, and it will be fully upgradeable to Android 12. Further, Lenovo is offering three years of software support and security patches for the K10.
Finally, Android’s kiosk mode functionality ensures that the K10 is a fully manageable, configurable device that can easily be locked down and deployed at scale. To learn more about why Android is the best kiosk tablet OS, check out this post.
Lenovo K10 kiosk tablet vs iPad
One of the real perception issues we think the K10 tackles head on is that of Android hardware being an “also ran” in terms of product experience. We’ve all used an iPad; we know what it feels like, and we know why customers connect with that experience. But the iPad is incredibly limiting for specialized used cases, while the K10 is exceptionally versatile.
The K10 can be configured with additional storage, RAM, 4G (in select markets), and a battery-less configuration for stationary, powered use cases will be available soon. Importantly, none of these variations will fragment your fleet, either, as all versions of the K10 are based on the same MediaTek Helio P22T SoC (System-on-a-Chip).
Displaying rich media, using advanced application features like face detection, converting speech to text, OCR (Optical Character Recognition), and support for external hardware like USB audio are becoming exceedingly common use cases, and the K10 is ready to tackle all of them.
