					Bluetooth Barcode scanner for Wireless Mobile Solutions
Opticon, Japans foremost
manufacturer of barcode scanners
and Mobile Computers has
developed a new mobile scanning
device designed specifically to
provide bar-coded data to PDA’s
and other mobile solutions, such as
the BlackBerryTM product range.

The new OPL-2724 from Opticon is
an extremely small (3/4 of the
volume of a Nokia 6230i mobile
phone) mobile bar code scanner with
built-in Bluetooth connectivity,
designed to provide users with a
straightforward method of capturing and communicating bar-coded information to
another mobile device, such as a PDA or a BlackBerry.

As a simple “scan and send” solution, the OPL-2724 can be used within 10 metres of
a connected mobile device. When out of Bluetooth range the OPL-2724 can store
captured data in it’s own 32KB memory for transmission once connection is re-
established .

“Bundled packages offered by the main airtime providers can make mobile devices
like the BlackBerry and PDA style solutions a very cost effective investment. What
Opticon has done is to provide a method of automating data collection to users of
such hardware”

Opticon has addressed the problem of introducing yet another battery charger by
designing the OPL-2724 to accept standard AAA alkaline batteries. User configurable
Bluetooth power management functions can significantly enhance battery life to a
maximum of 30,000 scans.

The device ships with T-Scan, Opticon’s own utility program that manages the
placement of scanned data on Bluetooth equipped PDA’s (Windows Mobile) or
Blackberry solutions.
