Rugged Windows®- based Pocketable Computers with Wireless WAN Capability
Furthering its commitment to providing innovative solutions and data management tools for the evolving marketplace, Symbol Technologies has expanded its popular PPT 2700 Pocket PC product family to offer wireless wide area network (WWAN) connectivity. Now in addition to one- and two-dimensional bar code data capture capabilities and wireless local area communications, the rugged PPT 2700 series offers secure, affordable two-way wide area wireless access, giving new meaning to point-of-activity computing.

A Simple, Secure and Seamless Solution
The new wide area PPT 2700 devices will enable customers to not only collect and manage data anytime, anywhere, but also access the Internet and corporate LANs, send and receive e-mail, and communicate with remote host systems through wireless WAN access. The new wide area PPT 2700 product family provides the standard PIM software and synchronization capabilities of a Pocket PC and is fully compatible with standard 32-bit application development tools from Microsoft and third parties, providing flexibility and easy integration for custom solutions.
The PPT 2733 houses Novatel Wireless' CDPD (Cellular Digital Packet Data) modem which uses Wireless IP Technology–a secure, open standard network which offers reliable, real-time data transmission at speeds up to 19.2 Kbps.
By using wireless IP technology, the device will transmit small "packets" of secure data over existing phone networks. Only the amount of data that is sent and received is tracked, not the length of time connected to the Internet. This structure, combined with Symbol's attractive data plans, offers an efficient, affordable solution.
Based on GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), a worldwide standard for digital wireless transmissions, the PPT 2734 features 900/1800 MHz Dual Band capabilities. This offers both SMS (Short Message Service) and real-time secure, circuit-switched data transmission at speeds up to 14.4 Kbps.
The PPT 2733 and PPT 2734 offer fast, seamless Internet connectivity; enabling efficient access to Web-based applications or corporate intranet data from anywhere wireless IP service is available.

Anytime, Anywhere Computing
As part of the "Extreme Environments" category of Symbol products, the PPT 2733 and PPT 2734 are sealed to IP54 standards for protection against windblown rain and dust, and are able to withstand multiple drops to concrete up to 4 ft./1.2 m. The combination of rugged durability and WWAN connectivity enables users to collect, manage and communicate data virtually anytime, anywhere.
Designed to be tough enough for use in manufacturing and industrial environments, the PPT 2733 and PPT 2734 also feature Symbol's state-of-the-art miniature scan engine. The smallest, lightest, brightest available today, Symbol's scan engines deliver premium performance, enabling your mobile workforce to capture bar coded data even in sunlight or bright artificial light.
