Intermec 6651 Handheld
Pen Tablet Picture Taker
by Stephen Jones (September 29, 2000)
Intermec's lightweight new 6651 handheld stands out from the crowd with three high-tech features: A built-in digital camera, a dual clamshell/tablet design, and cutting-edge wireless connectivity.
Imagine yourself as a scientist working in the field. You'd rely on the 6651's VGA-resolution camera to capture both still and video images in the field. Also handy is the flip-over screen/tablet that lets you jot off notes or sketches to go along with the captured images.
Much later (because of the 6651's 8-hour battery life), you arrive at the lab and wirelessly upload your field work to the corporate network via the optional Wi-Fi modem at speeds approaching 11 Megabits per second.
No matter what kind of stand-up work you do, it is not hard to imagine how quickly you could get used to capturing images and computing on the go. So, ditch the clipboard and consider the Intermec 6651.
