Datalogic Mobile has released a new white paper Rugged Mobile Computers - Which Operating System is Right for You? Mobile computers in many cases communicate in real time with back-end business systems. The mobile operating systems (OS) on these devices play a key role in the successful integration of mobile applications with the wider corporate IT infrastructure.
In the case of rugged or semi-rugged mobile devices targeted at vertical applications, the OS of choice has been Microsoft Windows CE. However, over the past several years, new OS platform options have emerged that have made the mobile operating system landscape more complicated. This white paper examines operating systems for rugged mobile computers reviewing cost, security, legacy applications, and more. Various operating systems from multiple manufacturers are discussed and market share data is presented.
This document gives readers an understanding of what operating systems are available and their applicability to rugged computer applications. To download a copy of the white paper visit the Datalogic Mobile website.
A free webinar will be held to discuss the white paper.
