MobileDemand provides a limited warranty that its products will be free from defects in material and/or workmanship which occur during normal use and perform substantially in accordance with MobileDemand specifications for the specified warranty period. MobileDemand computers (tablets and handhelds) are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for the period of thirty-six (36) months except for the xTablet Flex tablet linexTablet T1500 & xTablet T8500 which have a twelve (12) month warranty. Batteries are covered for a period of six (6) months. Cables, chargers, mounts and other accessory items are specifically warranted for a period of ninety (90) days from product purchase.

MobileDemand will repair the equipment during the warranty period with new or rebuilt parts, free of charge in the United States. All foreign orders will be subject to a $50.00 USD charge.  MobileDemand reserves the right in its sole judgment to determine if the failure or defect is a warrantable failure or defect.  A purchase receipt or other proof of date of original purchase may be required before warranty performance is rendered.  Products and/or services MobileDemand acquires from or through a manufacturer, distributor or other third-party provider and resells and/or provides to customer will carry the original manufacturer's pass-through warranty of parts only, if any.
