The advantage of using a tablet with an Android OS as opposed to an iPad is that the security issues with iPads are mostly unavoidable. The iOS operating system is not well suited for selfservice as this environment imposes many demands on an operating system that are far different from the standard consumer use of the device. Since the iOS is a closed operating system, it restricts the robustness and security of self-service applications, while the Android operating system is very open and well suited for self-service.
It is important to remotely monitor your tablet mobile device to determine its current status. The Server Console, installed on your machine running Windows OS allows you to monitor multiple Android tablets from a central location. Specifically, it can let you know if your application is still running, if any components are reporting errors, the physical location of the device and the percentage battery life.
