Press release date: May 13, 2014
DOVER, N.J. -- Today, Casio America, Inc. announced the introduction of two new POS touch terminals, the V-R7000 and V-R7100, which both run the Android(TM) operating system and their optional Point of Sale (POS) application software. The release of the V-R7000 and V-R7100 follows the introduction of the highly successful and innovative V-R100 terminal, which was the first complete Android-based electronic POS terminal.
"Retailers, large and small, seek POS systems that are not only cost-effective, but also help their businesses run more efficiently," said Tom Zitelli, Sales & Marketing Manager of Casio's System Products Division. "The new V-R7000 and V-R7100 terminals deliver on those needs with a wide variety of applications and support tools that help to eliminate common hardware problems and improve the business's short- and long-term success."
The V-R7000 and V-R7100 are designed without a fan, hard disk drive or any movable components to ensure efficient store operations by eliminating common problems experienced with PC-based hardware. Like the V-R100, these new terminals will run third party, ISV (Independent Software Vendors), Android-based POS applications. Additional applications available on the V-R7000 AND V-R7100 include grocery/convenience store, pizza, concession stand, hospitality and apparel store. Casio also provides a software development kit (SDK) to ISV's in order to facilitate their software running on these new models.
Additional hardware offerings on the V-R7000 and V-R7100 include:
The 15.6-inch widescreen touch panel display can be positioned vertically and supports VESA compatible mounting that includes pole, wall and vertical stand mountings to maximize operator viewing access to the application screens.

Both models are also equipped with a battery to protect memory data in the event of a power failure. Once the power returns to the terminal, it will go directly to the last screen it was showing at the time of the failure without the loss of transaction data. In addition, a variety of peripherals are available to enhance the functionality of the V-R7000 and V-R7100 including an expansion box with additional communication ports, ergonomically designed magnetic strip card reader, remote customer display and a LAN/serial printer.
