Xchange Tech Innovator Awards: Technologies With Channel Punch


Handhelds: Motorola

Correia presented the Tech Innovator Award for most innovative handheld product to Motorola for its ES 400, a device which combines voice, data, e-mail, messaging, GPS, bar code scanning, digital capture, and WAN capabilities in a single product.

"Handheld computers in the hands of savvy solution providers can offer a huge boost in productivity," he said. "This can be especially true in the field as workers look for the latest inventory to close a sale, download a parts diagram to complete a repair or access enterprise applications.

Curt Crowley, senior director of innovation and design enterprise mobility solutions, accepted the award for Motorola.

Runner up in the category was the Xenon Series of handheld bar code scanners from Honeywell.
