Datalogic - Elf

Rugged construction survives drops on to concrete floors and exposure to water and dust. Capitalizing on Datalogic’s legendary ergonomics, the new PDA packs unprecedented features into a compact form factor built for single handed use. Use of an accelerometer eliminates awkward presentation of on screen data and a unique guitar pick stylus provides for intuitive touch screen navigation.

Compute Quickly

Getting a job done quickly has never been easier with a 624 MHz processor and 256 MB RAM. A Micro SD card slot supporting SDHC storage cards provides for virtually unlimited storage space for photos taken with the onboard 3 MP camera.

Data Capture

Both a 1D laser scanner and 2D barcode imager enable a wide array of bar codes seen across diverse enterprises. Both have Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ good read technology to improve user efficiency and accuracy.


The new PDA provides four wireless technologies in the same form factor: Bluetooth EDR for fast data transfer: 802.11 a/b/g with Cisco Certified security: UMTS HSDPA for real-time communication outside the enterprise and Assisted GPS (A-GPS) with Skyhook‘s Core Engine hybrid positioning system for location based applications.

Develop and Deploy Direct

Elf offers the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 or CE 6.0 platform, with the Datalogic SDK and tools for integrating voice, pictures, and video to create or enhance existing mobility software solutions. Wavelink device management tools make Elf a simple device to both deploy and maintain.
