January 13, 2012

“The M1000 is already packed with the most in-demand data-capture functionality for retail and warehouse environments. With increased RAM, the M1000 allows customers to run multiple memory-intensive applications–including voice–and take full advantage of Windows CE 6.0,” said DAP’s Director of Product Management and Marketing, Khalid Kidari, referring to the operating system’s capacity to run multiple processes. “With GPRS, the M1000 can be used indoors and out, while maintaining connectivity.”

Featuring data-capture technology usually found in much larger devices, DAP’s M1000 is just 5.7 x 2.4 x 1 inches (144 x 62 x 25 mm) and 8.2 oz. (232 grams), making it a palm-sized and featherweight solution for inventory control, picking and packing. The M1000 is sealed to IP65, providing protection against dust and water.

The M1000 scans barcodes and allows for easy manual data input via a 12-key numeric keypad or its 2.8-inch color touch screen with LED backlighting. Conveniently placed and generously sized scanner buttons provide one-touch access to 1D laser or 1D/2D imager scanning, while the handheld fits comfortably in even the smallest hands.

The M1000 ships voice-ready for companies looking to boost picking and packing efficiency. Its compact form factor also makes it a discrete choice for storefront retail use.

Equipped with Windows® CE 6.0 Professional, a Marvell® PXA310 624 MHz processor, 256 MB Flash memory and 256 MB RAM, the M1000 offers ample power and storage capabilities in a compact form factor. It supports WWAN GPRS/GSM 3G, WLAN with a Summit 802.11 b/g radio, and Bluetooth®.

DAP is unveiling the upgraded M1000 from booth 1777 at National Retail Federation (NRF) in New York on Jan. 16 – 17.
