Datalogic Mobile Releases White Paper on Mobile Computer Operating Systems

Datalogic Mobile, Eugene, Ore., announces the release of 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, a copy of which can be downloaded, gives readers an understanding of what operating systems are available and their applicability to rugged computer applications. Datalogic Mobile is also hosting free webinars on the white paper. Registration for either Thursday, July 29, or Tuesday, Aug. 3, is required.
