Other Skorpio-GUN™ features include: A color graphic display with touchscreen; 38-key alphanumeric keypad for quick input of data and descriptions; Intel X-Scale series processor; Windows CE operating system; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g wireless communication capabilities such as WPA and WPA2 to keep data secure; Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) Version 3 to leverage all advantages offered by Cisco WLAN infrastructure; and the DL-TCL-NET software client.

“Skorpio-GUN™ incorporates Datalogic’s patented Green Spot technology that projects a green spot on the bar code with each good read; there’s nothing better for use in noisy commercial and industrial environments” says David Paufler, Senior Product Manager at Datalogic Mobile.
