    The Unitech Handheld Computer is the Affordable Way to Introduce Businesses to Mobile Computing

    CYPRESS, California­­–November 11, 2014– Unitech introduces a new durable Windows handheld with a 3.5” touch screen that is simple to pair with software. The PA520 is designed for businesses looking for a straightforward, no-frills approach to data collection for either batch applications or workflows inside the “four walls.”
    The PA520 is more durable than a consumer-grade device, with an environmental seal against moisture and dust and construction that can withstand repeated drops of up to 3 feet. Despite this protection, the PA520 remains sleek and slim, fitting comfortably inside a shirt pocket and weighing only eight ounces, with battery.
    This device features a 3.5” touch screen available in VGA or QVGA resolutions. The capacitive screen allows users to operate the device with the touch of a finger–no stylus necessary.

    This new handheld runs applications smoothly with an 800 MHz dual core processor, 512 MB RAM/512 MB ROM, and Windows Handheld 6.5. This efficient platform supports 802.11 a/b/g WiFi connections so workers can stay connected and obtain the information they need quickly and securely.
    The device has already been certified by PTS (Portable Technologies Solutions) in New York and Redbeam in Georgia. Unitech is currently working with other partners such as Z-Space in Ohio and Intellitrack in Maryland to certify the PA520 with their barcode data collection software.
    “The classic combination of Windows 6.5 Classic with a 3.5” touch screen needed an update,” said Unitech America President Scott Chung. “We were able to do that at an accessible price that helps businesses stay on budget.”
    Pricing and Availability
    The PA520 is available today through Unitech’s authorized resellers, starting at $845 (list price). The aggressive integrated scanner is available in both 1D and 2D configurations with a no scanner option also available.  The healthcare version of this device, the PA520 MCA, brings disinfectant-ready housing and RFID to the package.
    UNITECH America Inc celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, marking three decades of dedicated innovation in the AIDC market. Backed by a worldwide network, Unitech manufactures budget-conscious solutions for enterprises everywhere.  Unitech’s mastery of market trends is evident in its high-quality products–a diverse catalog that includes barcode scanners, rugged mobile computers, rugged keyboards, and much more.
