This pre-launch showing will give attendees a sneak peak prior to the scheduled April product launch.


The new PDA from Datalogic Mobile was designed from the ground up with the ergonomics, technology, and ruggedness to meet the needs of applications in Field Service, Field Sales, Delivery, Logistics, and Retail. Capitalizing on Datalogic Mobile's legendary ergonomics, the new PDA packs unprecedented features into a compact form factor built for single handed operation.

We have also integrated the Datalogic patented Green Spot good read technology with both the laser bar code reader and the 2D imager. The new PDA also incorporates HF RFID support."


As in all Datalogic Mobile computers, the Wavelink Avalanche® device management system is pre-loaded and pre-licensed.
