Posted December 11, 2012

This will apply to all special versions of the Skorpio mobile computer as well.

Product Replacement Recommendation

The new Skorpio X3 rugged mobile computer by Datalogic represents innovation. From its 3.2 inch color touch screen to its inclined scan engine, the latest advances in technology and engineering are found in this compact and ergonomic solution for data collection needs.

The Skorpio X3 mobile computer was designed with retail environments in mind, both on the show room floor and in the back office. It offers the largest high-visibility color graphic display (3.2 inch) with touch screen in its class. This, combined with its specially crafted ergonomic casing, increases the viewing area in an extremely compact form factor, while its trendy design, compact size and light weight provide excellent balance and superior handling. The Skorpio X3 also resists shocks, tumbles and multiple drops from 1.5 m / 5.0 ft, guaranteeing reliable performance with every scan.

An achievement of the cutting edge technology used in the Skorpio X3 mobile computer is its inclined scan engine, which scans 1D and 2D bar codes without the need to move the wrist. This, together with Datalogic’s patented Green Spot technology for good read feedback, makes the Skorpio X3 mobile computer easier to aim and quick to read, as the collected data can be viewed on the display while scanning.

The Skorpio X3 mobile computer also grants versatility for specific application needs by offering three different keypads. The 50-key and 38-key alphanumeric keypads are ideal for situations in which terminal emulation is necessary, while the 28-key numeric keypad is particularly suited to applications handling extensive numeric data.

High capacity batteries give the Skorpio X3 mobile computer extra power in scan intensive and 2D reading applications. The increased autonomy of this device permits data collection activities even after the work-shift ends. The included micro USB connector for direct charging uses any type of standard power supply found in the cellular phone market, reducing waste, and thereby sustaining the green environment.
