Unitech, the third largest worldwide manufacturer of rugged PDAs, has won a prestigious International Design Award for its recently launched PA600 rugged mobile computer.
The iF Product Design Awards is regarded as one of the most important design competitions worldwide, and this year it attracted over 2200 entries from 30 different countries. The jury, composed of top international designers, critically examined products in 12 categories, including the computing category in which the PA600 has been recognised for its overall design.
The PA600 won the award for its overall design quality and ergonomics. The rugged mobile computer weighs only 290 grams and is small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, yet it is rugged enough to withstand the rigours of every day professional and industrial use with an IP54 rating and its guaranteed to withstand multiple 1.2m drops to concrete. The PA600 has an easy to use keyboard, a large colour screen for instant visibility and fully integrated scan buttons. The PA600 fits naturally into the hand to work together with rather than against the user. It delivers powerful mobile computing across a range of applications, particularly in field service, retail, healthcare and hospitality environments where size and portability really make a difference.
Raymond Wolfert, European Sales and Marketing Manager for Unitech, said We are delighted to have received this award that recognises our designers work on the PA600. Unitech prides itself on designing products that maximise user comfort and strike the right balance between design, functionality and cost.
