Pocketable Productivity for People on the
Symbol Technologies has maximized efficiency,
functionality and productivity in a new pocket-sized Palm Powered device—the
SPT 1550. Equipped with the latest processing technology and features, the SPT
1550 is a powerful productivity tool, enabling users to capture and manage data
faster and easier than ever.
Superior Features for Maximum Performance
1550 is 100% compatible with Palm OS hardware and software and offers mobile
professionals significant advantages with benefits in data capture, information
access and computing power. The SPT 1550 features an integrated scan engine and
conveniently placed scan triggers, enabling fast, efficient, and accurate data
capture. This is the smallest, lightest, and brightest engine available today,
enabling the SPT 1550 to deliver premium performance bar code scanning.
The SPT 1550
comes with a generous 8 MB of RAM and 4 MB of ROM, for application or data
storage needs, and its 33MHz processor allows applications to run at peak
speeds, keeping pace with business demands. With its touch-based graphical
interface, push-button controls, and backlit 160 x 160-pixel display, the SPT
1550 is easy to use, even outdoors or in dimly lit spaces. Two AAA batteries
deliver hours of power, or an optional rechargeable NiMH battery kit is
available. The SPT 1550 supports both single and multi-slot cradles for flexible
host communications in most network and user environments.
The Point of Activity Advantage
The SPT 1550 is designed for convenient
operation in the office or on the road. Its ease-of-use and functionality lend
themselves to applications in a host of industries.
Salespeople can enter customer information, scan
items from a bar-coded catalog and check downloaded price lists, enabling more
time to sell and less time doing paperwork. With its laser scanning capability,
the SPT 1550 can also help increase efficiency in the office, streamlining
processes such as office supply ordering. Medical professionals can take
advantage of the SPT 1550's mobility, using the device for patient verification,
bedside drug administration and a host of applications used hospital-wide.
Teachers and education professionals can use the
device to access and update student records, including daily attendance and
grading. With its easy to use interface, consumers can also enjoy the benefits
of scanning with the SPT 1550. Instead of written shopping lists, consumers can
scan items as they are depleted, creating an electronic shopping list. This
electronic list can be used on the next shopping trip or uploaded over phone
lines to the local store or e-commerce websites.
Tailor Applications for Your Business
Any business can tailor the adaptable SPT
1550 to boost the productivity of its mobile professionals. Because the device
is based on the Palm platform, programmers can build solutions using familiar
Palm OS development tools.
The Palm OS Software Development Kit (SDK)
includes the Symbol Application Programming Interfaces (API) for controlling the
scanner and manipulating data input, and trial versions of several of the most
popular Palm development environments. A growing roster of software companies
support the SPT product family with tools for network and database connectivity.
