Interior Dept. Now Wants Two-Year iPad Warranty

The Interior Department now plans to purchase iPads or equivalent tablets with a two-year warranty instead of one year, according to a Thursday request for information.

The department’s National Business Center said last week that it planned two purchases of 10 new iPads with an option of buying 10 more.

The department will consider other tablets if they meet requirements, according to a notice posted on FedConnect.

The tablets must have at least 32 gigabytes of memory, access to Wi-Fi or 4G networks, a 9.7-inch diagonal LED-backlit glossy widescreen and must be able to connect to the center’s secure network.

The tablets also must have programs to open files in formats used by Adobe and Microsoft PowerPoint and Word.

The department is also requiring access to jpeg, tiff, HTML, text and rich text format files.
