Unitech Releases PA550 – QWERTY-Equipped Ruggedized Smartphone

Unitech introduces the long-awaited PA550, a combination of rugged construction and smartphone utility. This Windows Mobile 6.5 handheld computer is a blend of ergonomic form factor and innovative design, making it the ideal durable mobile device for a broad variety of applications.

Boasting a full QWERTY keypad with separate numeric keys, the PA550 affords quick and efficient typing for workers who are constantly on the go. An 8-inch color touch screen and multiple data collection options, including a 1D laser scanner, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and voice recorder, provide users with convenience and versatility. Far more durable than consumer-grade PDAs, the PA550 offers a lightweight, compact solution that is perfect for retail, inventory, and a host of other applications.

“We’re pleased to offer the PA550, which will take the user experience to a whole new level,” said Howard Weng, Unitech’s Product Manager. “I am honored to say that we are continuing to enhance customers’ rugged mobile workability, and to create an improved enterprise environment.”

A sleek, outside-the-four-walls device, the feature-rich PA550 also contains an SDIO expansion slot, an LCD screen readable in direct sunlight, and offers a high-speed 3.5G WWAN connection with GPS for better positioning and tracking. The PA550 is designed to not only meet, but also exceed the demands of a variety of mobile business applications – anytime, anywhere.
