Android-Open-Source-Project

Android™ has emerged with growing popularity in the handheld arena, from smartphones to tablets to other devices, it’s here to stay. Since its notable growth, Google has been working toward making various forms of Android available for enterprise devices as well as other device types such as Internet of Things. In the world of rugged handhelds, device manufactures have been turning to Android to participate in the Android “ecosystem” and provide users with an easy-to-use, versatile operating system.

To avoid confusion, it’s important to understand the differences between Android Open Source Project (AOSP) devices and Android Google Mobile Services (GMS) devices, as many individuals have the misconception that all Android operating systems have the same capabilities. The key to differentiating between the two is first recognizing that AOSP is the basis for all Android devices. Sponsored and lead by Google, AOSP provides the source code necessary to build an Android-compatible operating system. GMS is added to select “authorized” Android devices. GMS is generally enticing to consumers/end users because it allows access to a large quantity of applications through the Google Play Store. It also provides several other applications including Gmail, Chrome browser, Google Maps, etc. If it is an “authorized” Android device, it will include GMS with all associated apps preinstalled.

Because the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet was designed for a wide range of uses, we developed a variety of carrying options to meet the needs of the individual user. With the carrying options listed below, you have the ability to optimize your current workflow and increase productivity, simply by changing the way you carry your Mesa 2.

Carrying Options

  1. Pistol Grip

The Pistol Grip is the ideal choice for all the frequent barcode scanners out there. This option features an ergonomic, two-stage trigger design focused on reducing strain and maximizing productivity during heavy barcode-scanning applications. The Pistol Grip Holster (sold separately) accompanies the grip to securely fasten the device to a belt or shoulder strap for convenient carry and deployment. Entirely compatible with the M2 Office Dock, the Pistol Grip allows for simple docking and charging, without removal of the grip. In addition, it can be used as a convenient desk stand for easy viewing of the Mesa 2’s large 7-inch display.

John & Geode

As the product manager of the Geode, I’m proud. It’s incredible what a customer-focused group of GNSS-loving individuals can produce. The Geode Sub-meter GPS Receiver was developed as a solution for gathering accurate, real-time data. Though similar products prior to the Geode provided accurate GNSS readings, each user interface was complex or inflexible. Not to mention the cost of other precision receivers. We decided to change that.

Capacitive touch screen in rain and wet conditions

The capacitive touch screen on the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet™ is very different from the resistive touch screen on the original Mesa Rugged Notepad™. Capacitive touch screens appear brighter and can provide greater clarity and contrast, increased durability, and multi-touch capabilities. They are also different from resistive touch screens because while resistive touch screens respond to pressure, capacitive touch screens detect and measure anything that is conductive, so that the slight touch of a fingertip or capacitive stylus triggers a response.
