The term Mobile Computers typically refers to devices which can be used while moving, as opposed to portable computers which are typically devices that are deployed in a stationary configuration (e.g. laptop computers). Over the years, mobile computers have evolved from simple batch data collection devices using integrated barcode readers to include extensive usage of other technologies like WLAN (Wireless Local Area Networks), WWAN (Wireless Wide Area Networks), Cameras, GPS, Biometrics, Magnetic Stripe Readers, Smart Card Readers and RFID data capture technologies.
Today, mobile computers and mobile devices are an integral part of industries ranging from warehousing and logistics to manufacturing and route sales. Any business where efficient mobile data collection is necessary can benefit from implementing handheld computers.
AutoIDsavings.com is your online resource for all types of mobile computers. We use our expertise to assist you in finding the right product at the right price. To help you better see your product options from the different manufacturers we support, we have enabled you to search for these devices using some of the following criteria:
- Wireless Capability: the current generation of handheld computers support a broad range of wireless technologies to ensure connectivity wherever you are. These include WWAN technologies that use existing cellular network when you're "out-in-the-field", WLAN technologies that use Wi-Fi (802.11) networks when you're "within the 4 walls" and smaller "personal" networks like bluetooth for printing to a portable printer. With these technologies, you'll experience greater freedom, which ultimately leads to enhanced productivity.
- Scanner Type: filter based on the type of barcode scanner or imager you need. Options are available for reading 1D, 2D and other types of barcodes.
- Operating System: operating system such as Microsoft Windows Mobile, Microsoft Windows Embedded or Android which allow you to deploy your applications on a variety of platforms.
- Drop Rating: drop rating which is a measure of a device's ruggedness. A device with a high drop rating means it is capable of surviving repeated falls from greater heights.
- I-Safe: devices with an I-Safe rating mean they can be used in hazardous environments.
