Holtsville, NY — June 19, 2006 — Symbol Technologies Inc. has introduced the VC5090 vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer, which combines rugged construction, processing and wireless networking to enable real-time data access and collection on forklifts used in harsh environments. Symbol said the computer is designed to help warehouse workers increase productivity and reduce errors in receiving, tracking, put-away, picking, scanning and shipping.

With industrial- and military-grade specifications for vibration, shock, temperature and sealing, the VC5090 vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer can endure repetitive pounding from forklift operations and provide durability in subzero temperatures. The VC5090 mobile computer also offers a high-resolution touch screen that enables data input with gloved hands and can be read even in the most poorly lit environments.

The VC5090 vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer extends Symbol's comprehensive offering of rugged mobile computers to forklifts and other materials management vehicles, helping organizations improve decision-making, streamline warehouse operations and positively influence the bottom line, said Brian Viscount, vice president of product marketing for Symbol's Mobile Computing Division. With the Symbol VC5090 mobile computer, customers receive a high-performance, industrial-strength mobile computing solution for reliability even in the harshest work conditions.


The Symbol VC5090 vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer is equipped with the functionality to streamline supply chain management with real-time processing and information to improve decision-making and customer satisfaction. It can also connect to virtually any wireless LAN via 802.11a/b/g, wireless scanning and printing through Bluetooth, and it supports voice-picking and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) via a push-to-talk handset. In addition, the VC5090 is RFID-ready and can easily be integrated into future Symbol forklift and vehicle-mounted RFID reader solutions.
