Coupled with Windows Mobile 6.1, the CN3 provides the users with advanced features, including enhanced virtual memory, increased application speed and faster boot-up times to maximize business operations. The device has been primarily designed for mobile workers performing mission critical tasks for in-field and in-premise applications, according to the company.
Windows Mobile 6.1 provides an improved user interface with increased performance and stability. The shipping for Intermec CN3 with Windows Mobile 6.1 will begin later this month.
John Kemp, senior director of marketing systems and solutions at Intermec, said that the CN3 will help companies keep employees connected to enterprise data systems and communicate in real-time with their mobile workforce to drive improved efficiencies and increased asset visibility across operations.
The CN3, along with Windows Mobile 6.1, offers the users of Microsoft (News
) System Center Mobile Device Manager new provisioning, configuration, management by policy, security features and improved control for mobile system and application management.
IT professionals can deploy the Mobile Device Manager (News
) to manage devices just as they manage PCs. The platform deploys administrator-driven management policies to improve on-device security, and makes it easy to provision, configure, and deploy devices while giving mobile employees access to confidential information on corporate networks with firewalls. Right now, only Intermec manufactures rugged devices that support Mobile Device Manager.
Grace Ho, a director at Microsoft, said that over the past year, the company has expanded its end-to-end enterprise solutions by introducing Windows Mobile 6.1 and Mobile Device Manager.
Ho said he believes the CN3 will empower mobile workers with the highest degree of performance and manageability available in a ruggedized device.
