Psion Teklogix has announced the Workabout PRO S, a Microsoft Windows CE .NET based handheld computer. The main difference between this and previous models is a smaller, lightweight form factor.
With a colour touch-screen and scanner options, the Workabout PRO S is suited for signature-capture and barcode scanning in direct-to-store delivery, transportation and logistics, retail, field service and other mobile applications.
The Workabout PRO S is built on an Intel XScale processor platform. It will offer a range of simultaneously supported radio options including WWAN (GSM/GPRS, CDMA), WPAN (Bluetooth) and WLAN (802.11b). With an IP54 rating and ability to withstand multiple drops from four feet to concrete, the rugged design of the WORKABOUT PRO S delivers reliable performance in harsh environments.
The new handheld will be available February 2005 in North America, Europe and Asia.
