Invengo Releases Mobile Phone UHF RAIN RFID Reader

Invengo Technology has announced the availability of its ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) XC-1003 mobile phone RAIN RFID reader, which the company says is suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) environments and retail, asset-management, health-care and event-management applications.

Invengo's XC-1003 mobile-phone RFID reader
Invengo described the new mobile phone reader in October 2015 (see RFID News Roundup: Invengo Technology Announces New Channel Partner Program), when it discussed its new global channel partner program designed to promote the company's RAIN passive UHF RFID tags, inlays, readers and antennas to a global ecosystem of strategic partners.

The XC-1003 features a RAIN RFID embedded reader that supports the EPCglobal Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C specifications, an Android 4.4 OS, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of ROM, a 5-inch color touchscreen display, and support for WLAN, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Wi-Fi technologies. It also features a flash-supported camera. The device measures 152 millimeters by 85 millimeters by 12 millimeters (6 inches by 3.3 inches by 0.5 inch) and weighs 230 grams (8.1 ounces). The phone comes with two SIM slots, one for GSM cellular service (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), the other for WCDMA (900/2100 MHz).
