The LXE Marathon field computer introduces a new form factor in mobile computing, with a larger screen size and greater computing power than a PDA, smaller size than a laptop, and multiple data-capture and connectivity options. Taken together, the Marathon field computer provides new levels of usability for the mobile worker in field-force automation, route accounting, and public safety. The Marathon field computer connects via Gobi WWAN radio. The Gobi technology means the Marathon computer can connect through either GSM- or CDMA-based mobile carriers. The computer can also connect to a local area Wi-Fi network via 802.11 a/b/g/n. Bluetooth connectivity provides users with the potential to connect various peripherals wirelessly.
