Hand Held Products, manufacturer of linear and 2D barcode scanners based on image scanning technology, announces its newest Dolphin(R) Mobile Computer, the Dolphin(R) 7850.
Purpose-built for scan-intensive environments, the Dolphin 7850 is ideal for retail and warehousing applications, including inventory and price management, shipping and receiving, order picking, and cross docking.
The 7850 is designed for comfort and ease-of-use, with an integrated pistol-grip handle and large upward-angled color display for easy viewing while scanning and entering data. This lessens the need for users to continually bend their wrists during use.
"We designed every aspect of the Dolphin 7850 specifically with the needs of the user and their applications in mind," said Eric de Greef, Business Manager for Mobility Solutions at Hand Held Products EMEA. "The 7850 was built from the ground up to serve mobile workers; other mobile computers on the market are transportation-based products that weren't designed with an integrated pistol-grip handle. Pick up a Dolphin 7850, and you'll immediately feel the difference."
With advanced Shift-PLUS(tm) Power Management, the 7850 powers scan-intensive RF applications continuously for 10 hours or longer, delivering uninterrupted data processing and enhanced worker productivity. Adaptus(tm) Imaging Technology 5.0 enables fast, omni-directional scanning of all barcodes, plus digital image capture and device configuration capabilities. The 7850 is built to industrial-grade specifications that include an IP64 rating, 5-foot drop specification, and testing to withstand more than 2,000 1-meter tumbles. The 7850's industrial components mitigate the forced obsolescence typical with products based on consumer-grade technologies.
The Dolphin 7850 is powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with an Intel(R) PXA270 520 MHz processor. An integrated Wi-Fi certified 802.11b/g radio delivers real-time network access to mission-critical information and supports advanced wireless security standards, including WPA and WPA2 Enterprise. The 7850 is also pending Cisco CCX v4 certification, and will support several of the technology's advanced security and operational services.
"The Windows Mobile platform equips developers with the necessary tools for creating rich mobile computing applications tailored to individual enterprise's needs," said John Dietz, group product manager, Microsoft Corp. "We are excited that Hand Held Products is incorporating Microsoft technology into an easy to use device that allows workers to collect specific data, keeping them productive while on the move."
