Intermec Technologies has launched its all-new CN2 mobile computer, a rugged, powerful and reliable pocket-sized mobile data collection device for tough mobile computing applications. Its ergonomic design provides easy, single-handed operation in a form factor small enough to carry almost anywhere that data collection is required.
Unlike consumer-grade or "semi-rugged" PDAs, the CN2 delivers the durability necessary for data collection in a full range of in-store retail operations - including price verification, shelf pricing, receiving and cycle-counting - and size-sensitive, light-industrial operations, including receiving, putaway and picking, shipping and inventory management. Competitively priced and fully featured, the CN2 is ideal for those requiring the small footprint of a pocketable device.
"The CN2 combines two critical requirements: it's easily portable, slipping easily into a shirt pocket, and it is able to withstand the rigours of real-world work," said Stuart Scott, Intermec's Director of Marketing & Business Development, EMEA. "Companies can now have the convenience of a PDA form factor and equipment they know will hold up for true investment protection."
With an Intel XScale processor and Microsoft CE .NET operating system, the CN2 balances the need for real-time data collection performance with full-shift power management functionality. The operating system minimises memory requirements, reduces complexity and allows the application developer to completely customize the user interface.
The CN2's Cisco Certified Extension v1-compatible and Wi-Fi-certified 802.11b radio ensures consistent performance by providing the best available wireless network throughput, reliability and security. The mobile computer is also available in a wired version for batch applications that can be upgraded with a WLAN radio later if real-time connectivity is needed.
The CN2 is available for order now for delivery from September 2005.
