More on the new “Mobility” of Devices

One of the better blogs/forums for mobility news is the Enterprise Mobility Forum. Much of the time the topics are focused on consumer side discussions, but I always find the topics relative, well-developed, and insightful. I recently came across this article which discusses the new Motorola ES400 and what it means to the enterprise mobility landscape.

The idea is that there is a growing demand for devices that, as the author describes, “marry the best features of a smartphone such as a sleek form factors and an intuitive UI with the durability of a rugged device.” We’ve blogged about this in various extents before (here and here) and I couldn’t agree more… while the need for traditional ruggedized computers will always remain, there is huge potential to extend the benefits of ruggedized computers to new markets and industries. I’m sure over the next few years we’ll see more and more devices like the Motorola ES400, and I’m interested to see what the future holds as the mobile device industry evolves.

Anyway, tell us what you think and check out the links above!

30% Growth In Rugged Computer Market?

This article from InformationWeek should make all of our device manufacturer friends out there happy. David Krebs, one of the most respected voices in the industry, with VDC Research is projecting solid growth in ruggedized handheld computers across the globe, and especially in Europe.

One of the items in the piece of particular interest is the expected increase in “beyond the fence” devices. As Mr. Krebs points out, “The real growth driver for rugged handheld devices continues to be with the ‘beyond the fence’ field mobile workers, which is the least-penetrated market segment and is only now beginning to see the benefits of making certain processes mobile.”

I know our readers cover a broad base of industries, so what do you think about Mr. Krebs thoughts on “beyond the fence” mobility?
