Symbol launches new mobile devices with Bluetooth, wi-fi, CDMA or GPRS
Symbol Technologies introduced two new mobile computing products designed to help enterprises increase inventory velocity, enhance employee productivity, improve customer service and maintain real-time connectivity to information for updates while on the road and in the field.

The company says these capabilities will help strengthen customer service and sales for beverage and snack route delivery people, improve site visits for service and repair technicians and improve pick-up and delivery activities for parcel post and delivery drivers, among others. The announcement was done just before the news that The Coca Cola Company will use a variant of this model, the MC9000-G.

These Symbol mobile computers follow the successful introduction of the Symbol MC9000-G, a grip/handle-based mobile computer introduced in October 2003, as part of Symbol's industrial mobile computing line. The Symbol MC9000-S offers a compact, slimmer format than the MC9000-G and the MC9000-K provides a full-sized keypad format. The Symbol MC9000 family now enables customers to more easily deploy and manage multiple applications, and train their mobile workforces, across an entire enterprise supply chain using a single, high-performance mobile computing platform in three distinct and highly rugged form factors.

Enterprise mobility applications, driven by Windows Mobile 2003 or CE.Net platforms, take advantage of Symbol's advanced data capture capabilities using the Symbol 1D scan engine or the Symbol SE 4400 Imaging Engine for omni-directional reading of 1D and 2D symbologies, as well as image capture. Symbol's advanced power management features and large battery capacity enable device operation typically for more than eight hours.

In addition, the Symbol MC9000-K and MC9000-S feature a 3.8 inch "" VGA displays, are able to withstand 6-foot drops to concrete across the entire temperature range and are IP64-rated for moisture and dust sealing. Symbol offers multiple field replaceable keypad options, enabling customers to use the same device for multiple applications with different data entry requirements. The device can be configured with Windows Mobile 2003 or Windows CE .Net.
