WARRINGTON, England, December 12

4820i Imager is Purpose-Built for High-Performance and Reliability in Industrial Data Collection Applications

Hand Held Products, the global leader in image scanner solutions, today
announced the immediate availability of the 4820i Industrial Cordless 2D
Imager. Designed specifically for use in warehousing, manufacturing,
transportation and logistics applications, the 4820i is built to ensure
high-performance and reliability in the harshest environments.

Class-leading features of the 4820i include:

o Powered by Adaptus(TM) Imaging Technology 5.0, the 4820i
aggressively reads all linear and 2D bar codes at any angle, including
those that are damaged and poorly printed, plus has the ability to

batteries on-the-fly instead of docking the scanner for charging -
essential for operations that run multiple shifts and require constant
scanner availability.

o Innovative battery management and robust Lithium-Ion technology
which powers up to 50,000 scans before requiring a recharge.

o Engineered to be one of the lightest and most comfortable devices
in its class without sacrificing industrial-grade durability, survives 50
drops to concrete from 2 m

o IP54 rating - protected against blown dust and water intrusion

The 4820i also integrates a shock absorbent housing with impact resistant
over-mold that gives the 4820i the ability to endure 50 drops to concrete
from 2 m while its IP54 sealing prevents the intrusion of dust and liquid,
making it suitable for use indoors or out. 4820i's Bluetooth® wireless
technology enables users to move freely around the work area unimpeded by
