PDA or PDT? The Best of Both with New WPA1200 from Wasp Barcode Technologies
Latest technology in highly portable scanning device ideal for asset or inventory tracking
PLANO, Texas - Oct. 29, 2007 - The latest addition to Wasp Barcode Technologies' portable data terminal line up sets a new level of convenience, comfort and out-right features. The new WPA1200 portable data terminal is a compact, PDA-sized device designed to give small businesses and departments of larger businesses an easy-to-handle, lightweight yet rugged mobile device. Its integrated laser scan engine and large, vibrant screen make the WPA1200 ideal for collecting data for asset or inventory tracking applications. Available immediately, the Wasp WPA1200 sets a new standard in portable scanning capabilities.
The WPA1200 is a powerful mobile device designed with a long-lasting battery, a laser scan engine that reads all popular linear (1D) barcodes, a large and colorful thin-film transistor technology (TFT) touchscreen, 64Mb of SDRAM, rugged IP64 rating and built-in Bluetooth wireless connectivity. An available SDIO slot provides room for up to 1 Gb of added memory or to add an 802.11 b/g wireless SD card. The WPA1200 comes with either the Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 operating system or Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system.
The WPA1200 is available as a standalone device or combined with Wasp's highly acclaimed asset and inventory tracking applications. Paired with Wasp MobileAsset for asset tracking, the WPA1200 is ideal for use in government, education, healthcare or business environments to track IT assets, equipment or any company asset. With Wasp's new InventoryControl inventory tracking software, the WPA1200 provides an attractive data capture form factor in light manufacturing, smaller warehouses, stock rooms or inventory-carrying mobile vehicles such as installation trucks.
"With the WPA1200, asset tracking and inventory control are managed with a unit that feels more like a PDA," said Steve Coffman, president of Wasp Barcode Technologies. "Its form factor is smaller and more compact than most portable data terminals, which may be an added plus for end-users who prefer the ergonomic yet highly functional form of the WPA1200."
Independent software vendors and value-added resellers who serve small and mid-sized businesses with their own applications will appreciate the fact that the WDT1200 relies on the industry-standard Windows CE 5.0 or Windows Mobile 5.0 operating environments. Easily accepting third-party applications, additional customization can be accomplished using the widely available Microsoft Visual Studio.
Standalone units of the WPA1200 are $1,495 with Windows CE 5.0 and $1,649 for Windows Mobile 5.0. Complete solutions of the WPA1200 and MobileAsset start at $1,995, while complete solutions of the WPA1200 and InventoryControl start at $2,095. The WPA1200 and all of Wasp's asset and inventory solutions can be purchased from direct marketing retailers such as CDW, TigerDirect, PC Connection and Insight. They are also available through computer resellers including WaspLink value-added resellers (VARs), SystemID Warehouse or directly from Wasp.
