Tablet Screen Sizes And The Tablet Kiosk User Experience
Once you’ve made the decision to integrate tablets in your project you’re left with the question of which tablet to use to best present your content. There are a number of factors to take into account when choosing a tablet but in this article we’ll focus on the display size.
The 7” and 8” tablets are immediately appealing due to their low price point. The smaller tablet form factor is designed to be a highly portable hand held unit and is not nearly as kiosk friendly as the larger display devices. For simple survey applications these tablets can work quite well but when reading or filling out information is required these units are not nearly as user friendly. These tablets tend to compress the details on the screen making text small and difficult to read without being very close to the unit. You’ll find that customers or visitors will be less inclined to utilize your kiosk if they cannot easily interact with the display.
Tablets that fall into the 10” range, such as the iPad are ideally suited to kiosk applications. These units present data in a very user friendly format and can still be obtained at a reasonable price point especially if you can purchase previous generation devices (iPad Air as opposed to iPad Air 2). Information can be laid out in an attractive fashion will be comfortable enough that most individuals will be able to easily navigate your content. The virtual keyboard keys are large enough that filling out information and completing surveys is a breeze.
Working with displays larger than 10” will only serve to enhance your presentation. Armodilo’s complete line of tablet display stands support tablets as large as the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (12”) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Note Pro 12.2” models. These larger displays allow for elaborate software layouts without compromising on readability or interactivity. These devices tend to be at the upper end of the price spectrum so cost may be a factor when looking at these tablets.
