Symbol releases RFID enabled MC9000-G Pocket PC
Symbol Technologies, Inc. is introducing a new version of its rugged Symbol MC9000-G with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) featuring an integrated multi-protocol Electronic Product Code (EPC) reader/writer. The MC9000-G with RFID handheld is capable of reading all EPC Generation 1 tags, both Class 0 and Class 1, while also offering a firmware upgrade path to EPC Generation 2 (Gen 2) protocols, when available.

Some of the applications for the Symbol MC9000-G with RFID include inventory management for assembly lines; price verification by retail personnel; warehouse management of pallets and cartons using both RFID and bar codes; and baggage tracking by airline personnel.

Based on Symbol's flagship mobile computer platform, the MC9000-G with RFID offers integrated bar code scanning and local 802.11b wireless connectivity along with a drop specification of six feet, including the integrated lightweight RFID antenna. Bluetooth is optional.

In addition to providing Gen 2 upgradeability as a standard feature, the MC9000-G with RFID will also support simultaneous reading of EPC Gen 1 and EPC Gen 2 tags. "Symbol has been a leader in deploying real world EPC Gen 1 RFID solutions and we have experienced significant market acceptance for Gen 1," said Phil Lazo, vice president and general manager of Symbol's RFID Infrastructure Division. "Enabling the MC9000-G to read both Gen 1 and Gen 2 simultaneously will be critical in ensuring that our customers have investment protection to take advantage of additional Gen 2 functionality while experiencing a smooth transition from Gen 1 to Gen 2."

The MC9000-G is a multi-OS device, giving organisations the option of selecting either the Windows CE .Net 4.2 or Windows Mobile 2003 platform. The device is based on an Intel XScale PXA255 (400MHz), and comes with option of 32MB RAM/32 MB ROM (Windows CE .Net 4.2) or 64MB RAM/64 MB ROM (Windows CE .Net 4.2 or Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC). Its display is a 3.8 in. 1/4 VGA (mono or colour).
