Janam Technologies, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, has launched an ultra-rugged, ultra-compact XT2 touch computer.
Designed for use in challenging environments, the new XT2 is a rugged mobile computer designed to provide maximum uptime, reliability and accuracy.
As the lightest and most rugged device in its class, the Android-powered XT2 is equipped with the latest technological advancements to enable mobile workers in field service, direct store delivery, retail, hospitality, venue access, automotive inspections, and transportation and logistics, among others, to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
It supports GSM and GPRS radio signals for voice, as well as 4G LTE for data -- with a Chrome browser. But Janam also added in a Zebra barcode-scanning feature, the ability to withstand 5-foot drops and immersion in up to three feet of water.
Instead of referring to it as a smartphone, Janam instead calls the XT2 a rugged touch computer and claims it is the lightest and most rugged in its class. Janam CEO Harry Lerner said it is "as sleek as a smartphone … with the most advanced technologies to meet the diverse needs of virtually any mobile worker."
The device can also be used as an RFID and NFC reader, which gives it full-purpose capabilities for warehouse operation along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. It has a 3,000 mAh battery and an 8-megapixel front camera and a 2-megapixel rear camera. It runs a quad-core Qualcomm MSM8916 processor, clocked at 1.2 GHz, with 2GB memory and 16GB of internal storage. It also includes a micro SD storage expansion slot.
