  • Android major version (dessert) upgrades: this enhances productivity, extends the lifecycle of the device, and offers the newest features in the Android platform and OS.
  • 12-month transition support for prior Android versions: this offers a comfortable transition period for customers to plan their upgrade to the latest Android version.
  • Regular firmware updates providing on-going enhancements along with fixes for the device: the Shield updates not only include security patches from Google and our chipset provider, they also include Datalogic’s fixes and improvements. This keeps your devices at optimal performance.
