Honeywell Dolphin 7850

Mobile computer for In-Premise applications
(by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer)

Hand Held Products introduced the Dolphin 7850 on September 26, 2007. It is a mobile computer designed for scan-intensive applications such as retail and warehousing, including price and inventory management, shipping and receiving, order pucking and cross docking. The 7850 uses a 520MHz Marvell PXA270 processor to run Windows Mobile 5.0, 64-128MB of RAM and 64-128MG of Flash. It has integrated 802.11b/g WiFi, optional Bluetooth, a 3.5-inch 240 x 320 pixel display, and a very powerful 14.1 watt-hour battery that, in conjunction with Shift-PLUS Power Management, can run the device even in scan-intensive applications for 10 hours or more.

Even though billed as an "in-premise" device, the Dolphin 7850 is plenty tough. It has a magnesium alloy internal chassis with component shock mounts, a polycarbonate housing, and plenty of rubber molding. It can operate within a temperature range of 14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, survive multiple 5-foot drops to concrete, and carries an impressive IP64 ingress protectin rating.

The Dolphin 7850 measures 7.1 x 3.3 x 1.4 inches and weighs 22 ounces (without the pistol grip). The device can be ordered either with a 24-key or a 38-key calculator-style keypad. Adaptus Imaging Technology 5.0 enables fast, omni-directional scanning of virtually all barcode types as well as digital image capture and device configuration. Hand Held Product offers the 7850 with a variety of imagers/scanners for different scanning appliactions.

On December 20, 2007, Hand Held Products was acquired by Honeywell and became Honeywell Imaging and Mobility, a new line of business within Honeywell's Security Group.
