The CE8640 series now includes more memory, USB host and XScale processing.

DAP Technologies recently expanded its Microflex CE8640 series product range with the introduction of the CE8640X. The new unit now includes increased memory capacity (128 MB), a USB host for external link integration, and is equipped with an Intel XScale PXA 255 400 MHz processor.

The CE8640 series, a highly reliable and rugged family of mobile handheld units, is ideal for a variety of mobile computing applications in many harsh environmental conditions and field service sectors, including: utilities; energy; transportation and logistics; emergency services; law and parking enforcement; civil engineering; and construction.

The new CE8640X, as with the existing CE8640, runs the latest Windows CE .NET operating system from Microsoft and is wireless-ready and Web-enabled. Its internal modem, Ethernet connectivity and WiFi, Bluetooth and WAN capability provide anywhere, anytime access to critical information. The unit's large keyboard makes on-site data-entry very easy, even with gloves. Data-transfer ability reduces the need to duplicate work, increasing employee productivity.

The new Microflex CE8640X will be the same price as the original Microflex CE8640, which will remain on the market.
