Intermec's CN3 Mobile Computer gets WinMob 6.1 upgrade

For some, especially for road warriors who live and spent most of their time on the edge of the road, having a rugged and robust device is more important than a good looking but yet fragile mobile device.

And so with that idea in mind, Intermec Tech. has introduced its smallest and advanced mobile computer: the
CN3. Intermec is proud with CN3's main trait: Rugged form factor that's designed to meet the needs of workers performing mission-critical tasks in field service, and built to survive the rigors of the road. You can tell that by seeing the device pictured on the left.

The CN3 has all the latest standard of mobile device such as:
  • * 3.5" QVGA screen (240 x 320 pixel) with 64K color
  • * 2MP camera
  • * QWERTY backlit keypad
  • * 128MB RAM
  • * 256MB ROM
  • * miniSD slot up to 2GB
  • * Intel® XScale PXA270, 520MHz

But soon, Intermec plans to make the CN3 more exciting by upgrade the device's old OS into Windows Mobile 6.1, Microsoft Corp director Grace Ho said: "Over the past year, we have expanded our end-to-end enterprise solutions by introducing Windows Mobile 6.1 and Mobile Device Manager."

Intermec Asia Pacific senior marketing manager Jack Tay also said similar statement in rhyme: "Mobile Device Manager helps IT professionals to manage devices similar to the way they manage PCs. Using administrator driven management policies, Mobile Device Manager enhances on-device security making it easy to provision, configure, and deploy devices while giving mobile employees access to confidential information on corporate networks with firewalls. Intermec is currently the only rugged device manufacturer to offer support for Mobile Device Manager."

AvantiKumar from Computerworld Malaysia reports that the Intermec's CN3 with Windows Mobile 6.1 will be available in Malaysia in October 2008.
