Psion Teklogix has launched the iKôn – a rugged PDA which integrates voice and data communication options onto a single device eliminating the need for multiple units.
It can read barcodes with its integrated imager or scanner, or take colour pictures using its inbuilt camera.
The iKôn offers wireless voice and data communications, GPS positioning, with simultaneous WiFi, Cellular (GSM/GPRS/UMTS) and Bluetooth connectivity options.
These features enable real-time information management, improved efficiencies and increased asset visibility across a customer’s operations. With a VGA display, iKôn is suitable for complex applications with sophisticated graphics.
It has a choice of three operating systems, including Microsoft Windows CE.NET 5, Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Classic and Professional.
Psion Teklogix’s CEO, Jacky Lecuivre, said: “Customers and partners worldwide were solicited for input and feedback on the types of capabilities they expect in a rugged PDA. We listened to our customers, to the point where they became an integral part of the design and features definition process.
“Consequently, initial market reaction to our prototypes has been immensely positive and we are extremely optimistic about the prospects for iKôn.”
