Offering the choice of Android or Windows operating systems, the CN51 rugged mobile computer has been introduced by Intermec.

Intermec, now part of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility, said in a news release that the next-generation mobile computing solution offers versatility and is well-suited for use in direct store delivery, transportation and logistics and field service operations.

“With support for both Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 and Android 4.1, the industry-leading CN51 underscores our commitment to innovation and ability to meet the diverse needs of a global workforce,” Peter Fehl, vice president for global marketing at Honeywell Scanning & Mobility, said in the release.

The CN51 has a large, multi-touch, outdoor-readable screen, according to the release, giving more room for application viewing and less need for scrolling. The unit has a battery life that lasts through a 12-hour shift, according to the release.

The CN51 is also a strong migration option for users of Intermec’s CN50 model, giving better processor performance, according to the release.
