Crave Interactive Ltd, the leading supplier of in-room tablets and mobile Apps to high quality hotels, today announces the launch of Crave Tablet, the world’s first tablet designed specifically for use in a hotel room.
Crave Tablet is a sleek, high quality, super fast 10 inch tablet, with a quad core processor and HD IPS 1280 × 800 screen. It is pre-loaded with Crave OS, Crave’s proprietary operating system designed for hospitality. There is no camera, HDMI or external storage capability. The software and guest data is secure with the system automatically refreshed for each new guest. Silent remote software updates combined with Crave OS tools, mean the tablet can be fully supported without the need to enter the guest room. A range of quality cases compliments the solution along with a physical security option.
Working directly with its manufacturing partner to achieve the right specification at highly competitive prices, Crave Tablet is being launched at just £199 / US$299.
“Our experience with hotel tablets has enabled us to create a tablet specifically designed for use in a hotel room with the required features highly specified, and those that aren’t, like a camera, removed” said Gareth Hughes, Crave’s CEO.
“Crave Tablet is available at a price that is less than the cost of a single room night in many hotels – with an increasing number of quality hotels choosing to deploy tablets, we are confident that the launch of the Crave Tablet will help drive the rate of adoption within hotels and further enhance Crave’s position as a leading innovator in hotel guest solutions.”
Crave’s in-room tablet solutions are highly popular with guests, with an average of approximately 50 page views per room night. The operation and marketing benefits to hotels far outweigh the cost, and allow hotels to dispense with paper directories, marketing materials and communication letters.
