Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today demonstrated Android OS running on a next-generation hardware platform integrated into its flagship rugged PDA form factor.  Until now, only a few rugged mobile computing providers in the world have demonstrated this engineering capability and none of them with a device weighing less than 10 ounces.

“An increasing number of our customers and ISV partners are evaluating Android’s fitness for mission critical enterprise computing,” said Harry B Lerner, CEO of Janam.  “While many of the challenges of this nascent technology haven’t been identified yet, Janam’s extensive experience delivering unorthodox real-time operating systems such as Palm OS to enterprise customers gives us the perspective necessary to execute swiftly and capably.”

Janam’s rugged Android OS products will be shown this week at the National Retail Federation’s 102nd Annual Convention & Expo in New York.
