Motorola Solutions (Booth 806) announced its first warehouse-ready tablet offering, the ET 1, which features a 7-inch multi-touchscreen, Android operating system, eight-megapixel camera and full-shift battery.

“This is a tool with value across the warehouse,” said Mark Wheeler, director of industry solutions for Motorola Solutions. “It can serve as a mobile managers’ assistant, and it can improve visibility, productivity, documentation and inventory control.”

Wheeler also showcased the DS3500, a Bluetooth-ready extended range scanner capable of registering an inkjet-printed 2D bar code from a distance of 40 feet or a few inches.

Another all-new offering from Motorola is a dash-mounted lift truck data terminal that is 75% smaller and lighter than its predecessor.

“Customers asked for a size-optimized solution,” said Wheeler. “The 6.5-inch screen on the VC6090 allows full-sized terminals to be attached even to smaller counterbalanced trucks with a minimal impact on driver visibility.”

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
