o We're looking at the Motorolo MC9190-G, any better choices? How about the MC9200-G?
  1. 9190 – 256 ram/1gb rom – a/b/g wireless
  2. 9200 – 512 ram/2gb rom – a/b/g/n wireless
    o There are also 28 key, 43 key, 53 key, 53-vtkey, 53-3270 key, 53-5250 key, etc.. devices, do you have a preferred keypad selection?

    o There are many model numbers for short range/long range, any issues noted between the two that you can think of?

    o Also there are different OS versions, which one do you recommend, windows mobile 6.5, CE6.5, CE7.0, Windows embedded 6.5, etc..

    o Do you support both 1D and 2D barcodes? The devices that are 2D also support 1D backwards compatible

The MC9190 was the top of the line until the 9200 came along. Either one will work great. The choice of keypad is completely up to you and depends on if you have numeric or alphanumeric stock codes. Unless you have a mainframe you have no need for the emulation keypads. Similar answer for short/long range. It depends on your warehouse and how you plan on using the funds. As for OS, I would recommend the latest OS. We have worked with all of them, but Windows Mobile/Embedded is easier to administer. Both 2d and 1d barcodes are supported. Operating systems supported are here .

Hopefully you are working with a reputable dealer who can help with the selection of the units and configuration. Our recommendation for a reputable dealer in handheld device/scanner hardware is here .

Other compatible devices: Intermec (by Honeywell) CK3x.
