Renovotec, the UK’s fastest growing independent rugged hardware, software and services provider for warehousing and distribution, manufacturing and retail companies is incentivising rugged supply chain users to switch to the Android platform by introducing a new Windows device trade-in scheme, for which the company is claiming an industry first. The new Honeywell Dolphin CN80, Android-compatible handheld computer is the first to benefit from the scheme, with a £250 part exchange offer for users trading in any Windows device against the cost of the CN80.
The new scheme is the latest move in Renovotec’s ‘switch to Android’ campaign, designed to help users wanting to make the transition to an Android rugged mobile device environment.
The CN80 mobile handheld computer has both full-touch and real-key capability for fast data entry, even in severe environments, allowing users to pick the best input method for legacy applications that have not been updated for the touch centric world. It incorporates a 4.2-inch colour touchscreen plus a choice of numeric or QWERTY keypad. Running on Honeywell’s Mobility Edge platform the Dolphin CN80 device offers an extended product life cycle across four generations of Android, with fast data processing and 1D/2D scanning, advanced network connectivity and extended battery life.
“In our experience Android is now the best platform for rugged supply chain users, especially given the Windows mobile enterprise products that will soon be end-oflife” says Renovotec managing director Richard Gilliard.
