Intermec Technologies (NYSE: IN) today announced enhancements to its most advanced rugged mobile computer, the CN50. The improvements double the computer’s memory and provide expanded scanning options to give customers more choice when configuring the high performance voice and data communication solution.
The CN50 now comes with 256 MB of memory, which enables faster responsiveness and allows customers to use multiple simultaneous applications, including applications with a large database or applications that use RAM-based virtual machines. Another enhancement is the flexibility to deploy the EA11 1D/2D area imager optimized for scan intensive applications, or the EA21 area imager that is designed for barcode reading as well as full page document imaging with Intermec’s eMDI software.
“The continued evolution of more sophisticated enterprise mobility applications is driving demand for more functionally-rich and performance-enhanced mobile devices. Intermec’s next generation CN50 – with its flexible I/O options, enhanced memory capacity and integrated wireless functionality – addresses many of these new requirements,” said David Krebs, analyst, VDC Research.
For businesses in regions that do not have 3G cellular networks or with limited data communications requirements, Intermec is also offering a version of the CN50 that operates over EDGE networks. The new configuration is more cost-effective for customers in regions that do not support 3G infrastructure.
