These units are designed for specific tasks and should be regarded as a business tool. They are typically more robust and better supported than high street PDA's, although specification will generally follow a little behind top of the range PDA models.

RFID and Barcode variants are readily available, as are mobile communications, vehicle connection kits and extremely ruggedised designs, some up to IP67. Battery life is generally better than PDA devices with interchangeable batteries and vehicle charging, meaning that an unlimited number of applications can be tackled successfully.

These type of units tend to be more expensive than high street PDA's, however, in our experience the availability of a reliable support network and spares backup provides a more viable long term business solution.
