Thanks to its pocket-size format, the DS2 rugged handheld computer can be comfortably operated with one hand. The computer withstands repeated drops onto concrete without damage. Furthermore, it is dust- and water-resistant. The 5” multitouch display provides sufficient working space. Like many smartphones, the computer uses an Android operating system, thus users do not require extensive training to operate the unit. The device is also available with an integrated barcode scanner as an optional extra.
