Psion, a developer of mobile computing solutions, launches Psion Omnii, a sophisticated, highly modular mobile computing platform designed to reduce technology obsolescence for a longer product lifecycle.
With Psion's Open Source Mobility (OSM) business model at its heart, Psion's Omnii platform delivers a new, adaptable, and rugged handheld computing family of devices. Because they are almost completely reconfigurable in the field, devices built on the Psion Omnii platform can be adapted for new technologies or even be repurposed as customer needs change. The upgradeable and interchangeable modules are developed by Psion and more than 200 developer partners around the world.
The first device to be created from the new Omnii platform is the Omnii XT10, which is a rugged modular handheld computer. It comes with an IP65 and a 2.0m drop rating. With the inclusion of the Texas Instruments OMAP3 processor, the XT10 performs up to two times faster on industry benchmarks, the manufacturer says. The Psion Omnii XT10 also features extended battery life with over twice the capacity of comparable products and offers a battery health grade feature that warns when the battery is nearing the end of its lifecycle.
