New Unitech EA630 Mobile Computer: Smartphone Price, Rugged Reliability
Android smartphones and mobile computers have become commonplace in today’s enterprise. Many businesses choose Smartphones over enterprise mobile computers because of the lower price. The problem with this is scanning through the camera is slow and unreliable and smartphones frequently break in tough conditions. The solution is the new Unitech EA630. You get the best of both worlds with smartphone level pricing, features and form factor with the toughness and high-performance scanning of a mobile computer. The EA630 ideal for retail, hospitality, healthcare and field service applications.
Smartphone Price and Features
When deciding which mobile computer to purchase, it is important to consider the total cost of ownership (TCO). Smartphones have a low upfront cost but lost productivity through unreliable camera scanners and more broken devices quickly make an enterprise device worth the extra investment. The Unitech EA630 has a highly competitive price and a compact, slim form factor, providing the main benefits of a smartphone.
It runs Android 9.0 with GMS and is upgradeable to Android 10 and is in the process of being approved for Android Enterprise Recommended. It has a 6” full HD screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 450 nits brightness, providing a clear and readable display for users. The total device size remains the same as previous models, as the screen goes almost to the edge, meaning the device is highly portable. Additional smartphone type features include 4G LTE with dual SIM capability. It has a 16 MP rear camera, providing great clarity for proof of delivery photos.
The Unitech EA630 has the advantages of a smartphones but adds many powerful features. The built-in 2D imager provides much better scanning performance compared to a camera scanner, enabling the user to capture dirty or scratched barcodes with ease. It is a very rugged device with a 1.2 m drop as standard and 1.5 m drop with the boot case. The screen is the most vulnerable part of the device, but Gorilla Glass 6 and a 9H screen protector makes it much tougher with the EA630. With a long-life 4,000mAh battery and the Snapdragon 636 processor, you get a battery life of up to 15 hours.
The range of enterprise accessories extend the functionality of your device greatly. An optional dock with a display port enables you to run an external monitor from the EA630, which can replace desktop computers for some users, saving investment and allowing users to seamlessly switch between mobile and desktop work. Other accessories include a hand strap, boot case, 9H glass screen protector, 1-slot and 4-slot charging cradles, gun grip, stylus and UHF RFID gun grip. Unitech suite of software utilities including MoboLink and StageGo enable fast configuration and a range of MDM functionality.
