The IT-800 offers 3.5G wireless WAN (GPRS/UMTS/EDGE/HSDPA) capability, providing a high-speed data connection (download speed of up to 7.2 Mbps), as well as voice communication for telephone functionality. This makes the remote access and downloads of information from an office server very easy and also enables field workers to communicate rapidly with the management department without using a mobile phone.
IT-800 can gather information by scanning 1D or 2D barcodes, take images with the PDA’s built in digital camera, read Smart Cards and transfer the GPS location information. The new PDA also comes with numerous security features such as a login verification system that uses the contactless Smart Card reader. It can be configured to erase all data if the terminal was not used for a certain time. Therefore in case of loss or theft the data would be secured from misuse. So corporate users can trust on this PDA to handle important information outside of the office.
The new IT-800 PDA runs on the new operating system Microsoft® Windows® Mobile 6.5, weighs under 350 grams and is equipped with a 9.4 cm (3.7 inch) VGA screen which is about ten times more shock resistant than standard displays.*¹ The shock resistance of the screen has been improved by inserting a transparent shock absorption material between the LCD and the touch panel. By utilizing Casio’s own Blanview® LCD screen, which offers an approximately 30% better LCD light transmission factor with about half the backlight power consumption, the IT-800 delivers a power-saving performance with superior visibility both indoors and outdoors.*²
Developed using ISO 13407 human-centered design processes, the new PDA is easy to hold and operate. It is IP54-rated dust/splash proof and can withstand drops on concrete from a height of 1.5 meters. It operates at temperatures down to –20 ºC and is suitable for an all-season outdoor use, even on hot, cold or rainy days.
