Guest We need a way of entering inspection data into our manufacturing system in real-time on a handheld device on the shop floor instead of writing the data on a form and then transferring the data on a PC later.

Given that you are in a production environment I would suggest the Motorola MC3190 as a suitable fit for your application. This unit comes with WiFi and Bluetooth as a standard feature as well as a built-in bar code scanner. Depending on the requirements of your manufacturing system the MC3190 will be able to log onto your network and transmit scanned as well as keyed-in information in real-time. It is also a rugged device that is made for industrial applications and extensive daily use without failure.
