Melbourne November 2010 – Gamma Solutions is proud to introduce the new LXE Marathon Field Computer. The LXE Marathon field computer introduces a new form factor in mobile computing, with a larger screen size and greater computing power than a PDA, smaller size than a laptop, and multiple data-capture and connectivity options. Taken together, the LXE Marathon field computer provides new levels of usability for the mobile worker in field-force automation, route accounting, and public safety.
Gamma Solutions’ Sales Executive Stephen Lakey says “The LXE Marathon is a welcome entry in to LXE’s range of mobile computers that fills that important market space between rugged PDA’s & laptops. Its rugged design & perfect balance between screen size & ergonomics will make it the stand out product in this market segment over the new year”.
The LXE Marathon field computer weighs less than a kilogram, and is powered by an Intel® Atom processor that runs full Windows® 7 or Windows® XP operating systems. It combines multiple built-in data-entry options, including a 7” outdoor-visible touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, integrated fingerprint reader that doubles as a mouse, and a high-resolution color camera. The unit’s available desk and vehicle SmartDock cradles allow one-handed undocking and user-friendly peripheral interfaces. Additional bolt-on accessories include a mag stripe reader, 2D imager, and extended life batteries for 8- and 12-hour continuous operation, all of which attach securely to the unit while maintaining the overall IP-65 rating for protection against dust and water.
The LXE Marathon field computer connects via Gobi™ WWAN radio. The Gobi technology means the Marathon computer can connect through either GSM- or CDMAbased mobile carriers. The computer can also connect to a local area Wi-Fi network via 802.11 a/b/g/n. Bluetooth connectivity provides users with the potential to connect various peripherals wirelessly.
