The new M8050 delivers high-value functionality and impressive power capabilities -- even for the most intense retail and hospitality data collection applications.

AML, a developer and manufacturer of wired and wireless automated data capture products, announces the new M8050 PDA. The AML M8050 was unveiled this week at Retail's Big Show 2009 - National Retail Federation (NFR) Annual Convention and Expo, in New York City.

Purpose built for ease of use, functionality and power manageability, the new AML M8050 PDA is equipped with a choice of 1D or 2D imager bar code scan engine, magnetic stripe reader (MSR) and large 5200mAh lithium-ion battery for all-day operation without recharging. Additional standard features include a QVGA color graphic display with touch screen, WLAN 802.11b/g radio, backlit 18-key keypad, trackball pointing device and Bluetooth WPAN connectivity. Available with either Windows CE or embedded Linux, the M8050 PDA also comes with a 400 MHz processor, as well as generous 128MB SDRAM and 128MB Flash ROM for adequate storage of data and system files.

"AML is very pleased to introduce the M8050 PDA," said Mike Kearby, President of AML. "Extremely functional and fitted with an impressive 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery, the new AML M8050 will run circles around most other PDA devices equipped with a WiFi radio and integrated bar code scanner. The only way users might get better life out of a PDA would be to strap it to a car battery."

The AML M8050 PDA combines a compact form factor with powerful features to efficiently handle even the most intense data collection applications. More durable than a standard commercial PDA device, the M8050 will withstand the rigors of everyday enterprise use. Sealed to IP54 specifications and designed to withstand multiple drops to concrete, the AML M8050 delivers reliable performance and long-term dependability for retail and hospitality applications, as well as entertainment venues and trade show events.
