    Yeah our app is a mobile POS so the printer was a must have item.

    plus the same type of paper (thermal and the paper width) works in both the casio and the epson pos printers we use for stationary pos locations.


    I can tell you that the end users of the handhelds are really hard on them and they work really well in spite of the abuse....

    wish i had pictures for you of some of them that come back for repairs.....


    like touch screens with craters dug in from pounding the same spot all day long and using pens and whatever when they lose the stylus.

    we have seen some half melted from heat and sun... some that were thrown out of a car and ran over....


    you name it....



    Thanks for the info.

    We can be hard users too. I'd really like to get some input on tough devices from more people who use them in the field. They tend to be expensive and I'd like to find the best value for the money. Users can vary from using our software all day, every day to just a couple hours a week. I've used IPAQ's  for light use and the Symbol MC50 for heavier use. I found the MC50 sturdy, but advise people to skip the version with the keypad. It's setup pretty poorly.

    I am hoping the picture for enterprise developers gets better, before it becomes hard to find WM6 devices.
