Honeywell has launched its newest scanphone, which blends the capabilities of a consumer smart phone, rugged mobile computer and bar code scanner. Built for workers on-the-go, the Dolphin 60s mobile device is designed to provide quick and reliable access to critical data.
“Honeywell designed this scanphone as an entry-level mobile solution to meet the needs of retail, field service, field sales and DSD operations of all sizes,” said Taylor Smith, Director of Product Marketing, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.
The pocket-sized rugged enterprise device has been engineered to withstand 4-foot drops and more than 800 tumbles. To increase data collection efficiency and accuracy, the Dolphin 60s scanphone integrates 1D and 2D scanning technology with multiple data entry options, such as full QWERTY and numeric keypads. Additionally, the scanphone’s extended battery can last for a typical worker’s full shift.
The device incorporates phone and data communication capabilities through Wi-Fi or 3G WWAN connectivity. Users can also deploy the Dolphin 60s’ Bluetooth and GPS technologies.
In addition to its mobile and scanning functionalities, the scanphone has extended lifecycle support, offering reduced configuration and implementation costs and overall lower total cost of ownership. The device also is compatible with Honeywell’s Remote Mastermind 4.0, the automatic identification and data capture mobile and scanning device management solution.
The Dolphin 60s will begin shipping globally in September 2013 in both Wi-Fi and 3G WWAN versions. It joins the Dolphin 6000 mobile device in Honeywell’s current line of scanphones.
