The Nomad also includes the latest Windows Mobile 6.1 software, so it runs all the applications you use most, including a wide range of third-party software for industry-specific applications.

The Nomad makes it easy to collect, save and transmit data in the field because it is available with so many built in capabilities and options. An integrated GPS receiver gives you location data for navigation applications. With the built-in laser scanner you can collect 1D barcode data and the integrated 5-megapixel digital camera captures colour images for inspections, maintenance, and repair applications.
