Unitech adds EGPRS to its successful PA600

Unitech, producer of rugged mobile computing products, expands its existing PA600 series with an EGPRS solution making it a real "Explorer".

The new version of the PA600, an extra robust mobile computer, now links the mobile worker directly with the back office, making it extremely useful for transport and logistics and in field services applications.

The  Explorer version of the PA600 with embedded EGPRS, offering increased data  transmission  rates  in  comparison with standard GPRS, runs Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system and enables real time communications with host systems, improving efficiency and productivity in the field and increasing customer service with instant job status updates.

To  ensure  maximum  mobility  in field applications, Unitech equipped its PA600  Explorer  with  all  necessary  features  such as a multifunctional keyboard  allowing  single  handed  use,  LCD  colour  touch screen - both equipped  with  backlight  to  offer  good  readability  in  diffuse light situations,  integrated  barcode  scanner,  Bluetooth  connectivity and an audible,  visible and vibration function to provide feedback to the mobile workers.  In  addition the PA600 Explorer has sufficient memory to achieve complex  applications  at full speed or to store maps for route navigation software.  Moreover  Unitech  offers a Car kit Cradle for securely storing the  device inside a truck or car, offering quality, safety and comfort on the  mobile workspace. Multiple connection ports allows the PA600 Explorer to connect directly with external devices such as printers or GPS devices.

Unitech  has designed the PA600 with special attention for the ergonomics. Weighing  just  290g, including the battery, it is the lightest rugged PDA in  its  class  and  fits  perfectly in a shirt pocket. The design has the added  advantage  to  ensure  all  day comfort to match. The PA600 is IP64 rated  and  thereby  sealed against dust and moisture. Moreover this small but strong device can withstand a 1,2m drop to concrete.

Raymond  Wolfert, Manager Sales and Marketing at Unitech comments: "Adding EGPRS  to  the  already  successful PA600 makes it a real Explorer. Packed with  all  the  necessary  features  and  accompanied  with the new in-car mounting  cradle,  the  PA600  Explorer  is  the ideal mobile computer for transportation and field service applications."
