Tough full-touch handheld
CASIO presents an alternative to rugged smartphones with the IT-G400, a mobile computer with a full-touch display for Android applications for challenging demands. The professional features of the rugged handheld computer include the operating system Android 6.0.1 with GMS, a high-speed imager and a powerful 5800 mAh battery.

Casio's IT-G400 full-touch handheld expands the Japanese manufacturer’s product portfolio of industrial handheld computers to include its first device without a keyboard. Casio is responding to a trend among some consumer smartphone manufacturers who often make their devices "rugged" with just a few visible measures. But only a tough looking housing is not sufficient for industrial users! A rugged device in the form of a handheld or mobile computer has to meet much higher requirements for industrial deployment. "The 'outdoor version' of a smartphone is usually not suitable for professional use. As well as the highest resistance to external influences, additional factors such as ease of handling, battery life, ergonomics, display quality and especially optimum availability are important," explains Thomas Uppenkamp, Head of Mobile Industrial Solutions at Casio Europe in Norderstedt, Germany.
As powerful as a top-end smartphone and as robust as the proven Japanese handhelds: The IT-G400 mobile computer, a full-touch handheld with a up to date Android operating system, opens up new fields of application in industry, retail, logistics and services. The device contains components that have already been proven to be top-class in handhelds used industrially. For example, a professional imager is integrated into the housing, which is easy to grip and made of durable plastic. Power is provided by an easy-to-replace 5800 mAh battery containing high-quality Japanese-made lithium-ion cells.
The 5 inch full-touch display is almost unbreakable and extremely scratch-resistant. The IP65 rating indicates that the device is well protected against the ingress of dust and water, making it particularly well-suited for outdoor use in wind and inclement weather. It works flawlessly in temperatures between 0°C and +50°C. Come rain or sunshine, the CASIO IT-G400 has the ideal features to prove its worth all day long.
The integrated CMOS imager is of the latest design, and extremely fast and powerful. A clearly-visible targeted laser aimer enables barcodes to be captured. The imager is even able to detect damaged codes at lightning speed and confirms the code has been read by emitting an optical or acoustic signal, as well as by vibrating, which is especially useful in noisy environments. Effective filter against high-frequency flickering under modern LED lighting allows for constant reading quality. Two side-mounted trigger buttons for the reading procedure reduce finger movements to a minimum for both right-handed and left-handed users. Furthermore, the IT-G400 has NFC/RFID functionality and two integrated digital cameras for convenient data acquisition.
The CASIO IT-G400 full-touch handheld is equipped with the powerful ARM® Cortex® A53 quad-core processor (1.2 GHz). Together with generous memory storage (2 GB RAM and 16 GB FROM), the device provides high levels of performance. Bluetooth® (4.1), Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n) and 4G/LTE WWAN are available for fast data communication. The combination of powerful hardware and the up to date Android 6.0.1 operating system means that the device represents a secure investment over many years and is ideal for a great number of applications.
The new full-touch handhelds in the IT-G400 range will be available in Europe shortly. They will be available in different versions and can be adapted for the relevant tasks very economically.
