Janam Intros New Lightweight Mobile Tablet With Embedded RFID
Janam Technologies, a provider of rugged mobile computers that scan bar codes and communicate wirelessly, has unveiled the XT1, a rugged mini-tablet weighing 13 ounces (370 grams), including the battery, and featuring a 13.56 MHz Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID reader, a 2D bar-code scanner and a Bluetooth 4.0 radio. The RFID technology supports the ISO 14443 and ISO 15693 standards, and can read passive high-frequency (HF) tags compliant with either standard. The XT1 is Janam's first device to support the Android operating system and, according to the company, is designed for both enterprise and government workers that require mobile functionality, such as those in field sales, field service, health care or hospitality.
In addition to 4G-ready UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/GSM wireless area network (WAN) communication, the XT1 is equipped with a 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi radio. It features an IP54 sealing to withstand rugged environmental conditions, according to Janam, and can also withstand repeated 3-foot drops to concrete. The device has a 5.9-inch WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen and optional 3G/4G WWAN technology (UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/GSM). The XT1 contains 1 gigabyte of RAM and 16 gigabytes of ROM, supports GPS, and has a motion-sensing accelerometer, a camera, a user-accessible microSD card slot, a 3.5-millimeter headset jack, a microUSB connector and a 3000mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
