  • Dedicated android wall panel with POE

    I seem to have spent days searching for a dedicated touch panel with POE for flush wall mounting and whilst I can find a few 7" devices from China I can find nothing larger.

    I know I can take an iPad and buy a case for it to stick it on the wall but I wanted something that's built for the task, no battery, POE power, front or bottom speaker etc. Anyone have any ideas? I'd ideally like 10" or thereabouts?

        Just for clarity, I don't want any tablet, and some adapter to make it work, I'm looking for a dedicated 10"(approx) android tablet with just ONE ethernet port recessed somewhere, so all I need to run is one cat5 and that's it. No digging out a chunk of wall to fit all the crap behind it. I'll keep looking and post anything I find.

          Hmm you could consider using the android x86 project ported onto something like a surface 3 or an Asus T100 or an Acer switch 10. You'd need an adapter that could siphon off the PoE and convert to 5V micro USB though.
          i feel like android typically doesn't involve ethernet ports. I really hope you do find something because I'd love one too. But I would expect anything that actually fits the spec to be custom/niche and cost an unjustified amount of money.

            I've been talking to two chinese manufacturers of industrial touch screens with rooted android or windows about the hardware with POE which they can do. I'd need to get another manufacturer to make an appropriate housing for wall mounting but I'm going to get some samples first. When they arrive I'll post pics/specs etc.
