Handheld Mobile Computer
The PA690 is the latest computer / ID scanner developed by the taiwanese leader Unitech.
More than 50% of the mobile computing / ID scanning device users are female, but almost 100% of those devices are designed with considering the male users only. Most of mobile computers are too wide for the female hands, making their tasks even harder.
Because of cost issues and conventions, leaders on this market (Motorola, Psion, Intermec,...) always placed old resistive touch displays on those devices. The screen being recessed from the front cover, it was impossible to access icons positioned on the borders of the display without using a stylus.
By investing on capacitive "Flush" displays, Unitech fulfills users expectations in a world driven by finger touch interactions.
The PA690 is the first real unisex industrial mobile computer/scanner that is friendly to finger touch interactions.
