LXE includes Windows Mobile 6.1 to MX8 rugged handheld computer

MX8, ideal for use in a wide array of light industrial and supply chain environments

By CBR Staff Writer

LXE, the mobile computer business of EMS Technologies, has announced that the MX8 rugged handheld computer will include the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system.

According to LXE, the MX8 is a data-collection computer, ideal for use in a wide array of light industrial and supply chain environments.

LXE said that Windows Mobile 6.1 is the current version of the Windows Mobile operating systems for handheld computing devices for data collection. This operating system complements the existing version of the MX8 handheld computer with Windows CE 5.0. Both versions of the operating systems will be available for partners and customers to develop and run their applications.

Steve Newell, general manager of LXE, said: The MX8 handheld computer powered with Windows Mobile will extend LXE’s reach into new applications and markets. We have seen growing sales of the product in the pharmaceutical and retail markets among others, due to its size, ergonomic design and voice capabilities. This computer was designed for scan-intensive or multi-modal voice applications. As such, we believe sales of the MX8 handheld computer will continue to increase with this expanded functionality.
