Taipei, Taiwan - June 1, 2010 - CipherLab (TWO: 6160), a leading innovator in Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) for the retail, warehouse, healthcare, government and distribution markets, today launched the Windows CE-based 9600 series industrial mobile computer (buy here from Legacy Technology Services). Whether on the sales floor or in a delivery truck, with the 9600 employees can easily and reliably scan and update inventory, take orders, capture signatures or photographs, and send replenishment data across the room or around the world. The 9600 makes it more efficient than ever to manage and track products on the go by integrating the industry's most robust multi-modal wireless compatibility and multiform data entry capabilities in a small, rugged new platform.

"This is by far the most advanced mobile computer, setting industry standards for mobile access and data entry methods, usability, and ruggedness while still retaining CipherLab's reputation for value and reliability," said Sherman Chuang, President of CipherLab. "Since the 9600 comes with integrated GPS, WWAN, WPAN and WLAN access, it's equally at home in the field, on the retail floor, or at the warehouse keeping employees constantly connected and productive."

With integrated GPS, workers can readily incorporate spatial data into inventory management, service or delivery calls and more. Cisco® CCX®-compatible WLAN powered by Summit - and GSM/GPRS/EDGE help users upload and download data nearly anywhere. Since the CipherLab 9600 can read 1D or 2D codes with a choice of linear imager, 2D imager or laser options, and has a built-in RFID reader/writer, signature capture and a 2-megapixel digital camera with LED flash, it can document more and maintain company data in a wide range of formats. The 3.5 inch VGA touch screen, 29key keypads and embedded Windows® CE 6.0 operating platform makes the 9600 easy to use.

To expand and customize the 9600 for any business need, it comes with CipherLab's application software and API that helps integrate custom applications and minimizes the total cost of ownership. The Naurtech CETerm software enables data collection by providing access to legacy main frame and web applications. SOTI MobiControl allows remote device monitoring and software updates as well as configuration changes to keep costs associated with ongoing system maintenance low.

The 9600 series mobile computers also offer the following industry-leading features:
