Janam’s flagship rugged mobile computer line offers dual-OS support

Janam Technologies LLC, provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, introduced the newest addition to its XM series of rugged mobile computers. The XM70 rugged mobile computer offers the same industry-leading form factor and rugged design of Janam’s flagship XM66 with more power than ever before.

Designed to deliver maximum return on investment, the new XM70 supports both Android™ and Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating systems on the same device, enabling enterprise and government customers to future-proof their technology investments and eliminate the costs associated with forced application migration and expensive hardware upgrade. In addition, backward compatibility with XM66 accessories allows customers to reuse existing peripherals and batteries while cost-effectively upgrading to the latest mobile computing platform.

“The XM70 is an excellent choice for organizations that require flexibility in operating systems with a device that can scale to meet their current and future needs,” said Laura Lathem, President of Z-Space, makers of the mobile data collection and communication software ITScriptNet®. “The XM70 allows customers to start with Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 and migrate to Android down the road without the expense of new hardware.”

Janam’s XM70 rugged mobile computer offers advanced 1D and 2D barcode scanning with Zebra’s SE4500 scan engine. With extraordinary scanning speed and outstanding motion tolerance, the XM70 improves productivity across a broad array of industries including retail, hospitality, healthcare, transportation and logistics and ticketing.

“Hundreds of thousands of mobile workers are currently using Janam’s XM66 mobile computer to increase productivity and improve overall business operations. No other device in its class offers the same level of proven reliability,” said Harry B Lerner, CEO of Janam. “The new XM70 leverages the flagship features of the XM66 while doubling the processing speed and power to provide an even more robust mobility solution.”

With a powerful ARM Cortex-A8 processor and double data rate (DDR) memory, the XM70 delivers impressive horsepower to the point of activity. Weighing less than 10 ounces and equipped with a full 3.5-inch display, the XM70 is not only designed to fit in the palm of the hand, but built to survive all-day use in challenging environments. The XM70 can withstand 4 foot/1.2 meter drops to concrete on all sides across a full spectrum of temperatures and is sealed to IP54 standards. Removable 2400mAh and 4000mAh Li-ion batteries ensure uninterrupted operation throughout the workday.
