New Bluetooth bar code scanner with Fuzzy Logic
Socket Communications has released a device that can read damaged, poorly printer or hard to read bar codes, and transfer the data via Bluetooth to Pocket PC and Palm devices. The Cordless Hand Scanner combines the power of laser bar code scanning technology with the convenience of Bluetooth Wireless Technology in a single product.

"Today, bar code scanning is the most efficient way to collect data from a mobile computer and is 50 times faster and 10,000 times more accurate than manual data entry," said Jack Brandon, Socket's senior business manager for scanner products. "With the addition of Fuzzy Logic technology in our cordless scanners, customers can be confident in capturing information from even the most difficult to read bar codes."

The new scanner has the ability to automatically enter scanned data into Windows, Palm or Symbian applications on a Pocket PC, Palm, mobile phone, laptop or desktop up to 300 feet away. It supports all popular bar code symbologies including UPC/EAN/JAN, Code 39, Code 128 and RSS-14 and is 2005 Sunrise Date compliant. The device uses minimal power, so it can be operated for hours without having to recharge batteries. Additionally, a stylus tip built into the device handle allows the scanner to double as a stylus for PDAs and other touch screen devices.

Socket's Cordless Hand Scanner is compatible with Pocket PC 2003 devices and is scheduled for first customer shipments on 25 June 2004, The product will be available for use with Windows XP/XP Tablet, Palm OS v5.0 and later, and Symbian OS devices on 31 August 2004. The product comes in two configurations:

  • CX2800-489, Class 1 laser, for an estimated MSRP of $649
  • CX2802-491, Class 2 laser, for an estimated MSRP of $699
