This is notable, as many ruggedized mobile deployments used in warehouse deployments are text-oriented and keyboard-centric solutions.

Modern mobile platforms such as Android are beginning to make more sense in warehouse deployment environments due to tenured hardware vendors such as Bluebird, CIPHERLAB, Honeywell, Panasonic and Zebra Technologies working closely with Google’s Android operating system and delivering ruggedized solutions to the market.

The image below details the technical obstacles warehousing professionals are contending with as they attempt to implement new technologies into their deployment environments.
