Janam has also unveiled two new handhelds based on the Palm OS. The XP Series will be the world’s first, rugged, mobile computers that combine Palm OS Garnet (version 5.4), numeric keypad option, user-accessible memory, NAND flash memory backup, USB connectivity, double capacity battery option, and, in WLAN versions, Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) wireless security.
The XP20 will feature a 160-by-160-pixel, monochrome display that was developed to provide continuity with currently available Palm OS-based industrial handhelds. The XP30 will add a color, QVGA display and Bluetooth as standard.
All XP Series models will offer a 2D barcode scanning option, meet IP54 sealing requirements, withstand drops to concrete from 4 feet, and weigh less than 10 ounces.
Janam will also offer a single-slot charging/synching cradle, four-slot charging/synching cradle, USB synching/charging cable, and attachable magnetic stripe reader (MSR) that works with all XP Series mobile computers.
The XP Series product line is expected to be available by the end of this year.
