Overview

Installation and Warranty

Engineered for business productivity, the rugged Surface 3 case provides unparalleled durability and superior protection. Shock absorbing rubber corner bumpers along with a structurally rigid shell protect the Surface tablet thoughout your daily operations.

An option for companies purchasing multiple devices is the ability for MobileDemand to apply custom asset tag labels to each individual case. Asset tags allow users to maintain an efficient, effective system for controlling and tracking the tablets.

For over-the-road applications, MobileDemand recommends the use of the tablet vehicle mount. It keeps the device safe and secure and is an ergonomical way to utilize the tablet when not in-transit.

MobileDemand also offers a bundle including the Surface 3 tablet with a protective rugged case and screen protector pre-applied. View Surface 3 bundles.
