PDT8100 Series Portable Data Terminal

Tap, Type, or Scan-Maximum Versatility in a Portable Data Terminal

The PDT8100 Series from Symbol Technologies bridges the gap between pure pen-based and key-based mobile data collection solutions. The first Pocket PC device available with multiple keyboard options, the PDT8100 is a versatile, large-screen handheld that delivers the functionality of Pocket PC with the convenience of tactile, key-based data entry.

Understanding and Anticipating Diverse Business Needs

Designed to meet mobile data management demands in an array of markets, the PDT8100 offers features and options to suit diverse applications and business needs. For instance, multiple keyboard options are available for maximum data entry efficiency in different environments. Route accounting professionals may prefer the 28-key numeric keyboard, whereas retail customers may opt for either a 37- or 47-key alphanumeric keyboard.

Sealed to IP54 standards, the rugged durability of the PDT8100 meets the needs of many industrial environments. This, coupled with communication options that include batch, Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) connectivity, enables the PDT8100 to deliver data where and when it's needed, enhancing productivity where business is conducted - whether taking inventory in the warehouse, or checking on an order from a customer site.

Ease of use and reliability are benefits that are valued across all markets. The PDT8100 features a large, easy-to-read 1/4 VGA display, backlit keyboard and rechargeable, extended-use lithium-ion battery, which contribute to the PDT8100's dependability and universal market appeal.

Power and Performance for Today and Tomorrow

The innovative PDT8100 Series is a powerful handheld that combines the strength of Microsoft's Pocket PC platform with the power of the Intel® StrongARM processor, operating at 206 MHz. Equipped with 64 MB of RAM and 32 MB of ROM, the PDT8100 is designed to keep pace with your business: a keyboard and touch-screen provide multiple modes of data entry to ensure maximum efficiency. Reinforcing this are the expansion possibilities offered by the user-accessible CF slot, which can accommodate a flash memory card.

With the dynamic PDT8100 Series, route accounting professionals are able to conduct business and complete transactions while on site with a customer. Retail clerks can perform price checks and inventory counts conveniently and accurately. When combined with the optional magnetic stripe reader, the PDT8100 can also be used for line busting or Portable POS applications. Healthcare workers can manage patient data through bar code scanning, key-based input or touch-screen selection. The list of markets and applications for this feature rich handheld is virtually unlimited.
