Buyer’s Guide for Mobile Computers for Warehouse Operations

How to choose among rugged smartphones, wearables, and warehouse bricks and guns.

The warehousing and distribution sector is in the midst of a massive, industry-wide changeover in mobile computers used for RF and voice directed warehouse applications.

This transition has been driven by the end of life of the Windows mobile operating system and the ongoing evolution of industrial and consumer mobile device markets, including the development of new wearable smartwatches and glasses. The result is that DC managers and IT teams have more options than ever when selecting mobile computers for use in their facilities.

This Buyer’s Guide describes the key technical and functional considerations to bear in mind when selecting the best device for your mobile application needs, particularly with regard to hands-free mobile applications leveraging voice, scanning and displays. We also include a Device Selection Matrix that summarizes the range of mobile devices appropriate for use in a warehouse.
