Microvision, Inc., a leading developer of scanned light beam technology, announced today that its pocket-sized ROV Laser Barcode Scanner is now shipping to customers. ROV Scanner is a hand-held, BluetoothR-enabled laser barcode scanner for mobile workers who need an affordable data collection solution that easily connects via a wireless link to a wide variety of mobile computing platforms.

"We are pleased to announce to the business mobility marketplace the availability of the ROV Scanner," said Ian Brown, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Microvision. "The small hand-held ROV Scanner will provide customers with a data collection device with outstanding reliability and performance at a very attractive price."

The Microvision ROV Scanner is specifically designed to read and collect barcode data in both simple business environments and more demanding mobility environments, including construction, field services, transportation, professional services, hospitality, government, retail, manufacturing, and healthcare. According to Venture Development Corporation, the business mobility market comprises 10.9 million organizations and 69 million workers. Of this total available market, Microvision estimates that there are more than 13 million mobile devices that could benefit from incorporating ROV-enabled barcode scanner applications.

The ROV Scanner provides users with simple-to-use "point and scan" capability, offers a broad range of barcode symbol decodes, boasts onboard memory to hold more than 4,000 scans, and runs on inexpensive AAA batteries. To further support mobile workers, the scanner can be operated using rechargeable batteries and has rubberized grip points to keep the barcode scanner securely fitted in the user's hand.

Through its standard Bluetooth connection, coupled with Microvision's Scanner Wedge software, the ROV Scanner seamlessly delivers scanned barcode data directly into business applications on users' laptops, mobile phones, and PDA's. The ROV Scanner is compatible with major mobile computing platforms including WindowsR, Windows MobileR, BlackBerryR, SymbianR and PalmR, to enable complete solutions for mobile data capture.

For developers who desire advanced barcode data control, Microvision provides Software Developer Kits (SDKs) containing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and other integration tools. The simple, affordable and connected ROV Scanner with Bluetooth has a suggested manufacturer's retail price of only $299.95 per unit.
