It has a touchscreen that can be used in direct sunlight, a powerful battery and can be used with a number of software applications.
Stephen Burt, managing director of Motion Software, said: “The Smart-E 01 has proved to be a popular piece of kit with demand outstripping supply. The key is ease of use in demanding environments whereby the flow of operations is enhanced rather than using cumbersome pen-and-paper or traditional handheld PDA processes.”
