STEVENS POINT, Wisconsin – February 22, 2016 - Gamber-Johnson today announced the TabCruzer Mini, their first universal cradle designed to hold consumer-grade tablets, is available for purchase in North America and Europe. Featuring slide clips that can easily be adjusted, the cradle can fit tablets as small as 6.9” x 4.3” to as large as 11.2” x 8.2”. The cradle is made from engineered polycarbonate and steel, which means it has the rugged durability users expect from a Gamber-Johnson product, but it’s incredibly thin – just 2.25”.

Item Number: 7160-0774

“The response to the TabCruzer Mini has been fantastic,” said Brian Wagner, president of Gamber-Johnson. “Our customers who have seen it have all been impressed that our engineers have designed a cradle that’s light, but able to withstand the rigors of day-to-day use in police, fire, EMT, utility, construction, and other fleet vehicles.”

The design is based off the flagship Notepad™ family, Gamber-Johnson’s universal laptop cradle. The TabCruzer Mini has all the ruggedness of the Notepad, but in a light-weight design made for tablets. 

The new TabCruzer Mini features a 90 degree wing turn closure latch, which allows a tablet to be quickly inserted and removed. There’s an optional built-in heavy duty key lock for customers who want to make sure their tablets won’t be removed by unauthorized personnel. 

Since the TabCruzer Mini is a universal device, not specific to any computer manufacturer, customers can continue to use the cradle if they purchase new tablets. “It’s a really smart solution for customers who may be looking to get new tablets in the future. The cradle can be used on pretty much any tablet on the market,” said Wagner.

TabCruzer Minis will begin shipping around the end of March.
