WORKABOUT PRO 3.
Intelligent, rugged and most
importantly flexible, the Psion
WORKABOUT PRO 3 is a new
breed of handheld computer
that delivers the choice of
numerous hardware add-ons,
software applications and
upgrades, making it work as
hard as you do.

The Flexible, Expandable, Rugged Handheld Computer
Makes the Most of Mobility
Created for the mobile worker, the WORKABOUT PRO 3 is ideal for employees
across a range of industries, including mobile field services, logistics, warehousing,
transportation, manufacturing and more. Its impressive flexibility enables you to supply
one device to meet many requirements; the WORKABOUT PRO 3 is built
to be a key member of your IT infrastructure.
The leading product in its category, the
WORKABOUT PRO 3 allows you to get exactly
the device that you need. In addition, you
have the opportunity to get the add-ons
you need today and the ability to add more
features at any point, as
business needs change.
The number of add-ons and software
applications you can attach is endless,
so whether it’s a camera for a traffic officer
or a GPS module used to track and trace
delivery locations – there is a solution for
every application.
Features & Benefits
As Adaptable As You Are
The hardware expansion slots of the
WORKABOUT PRO 3 make adding new
modules fast and easy – saving significant
time and money. And there’s a whole range
available – everything from fingerprint
scanners and passport readers to RFID
readers.
WiFi or GPRS; scanners, imagers and RFID
options – the WORKABOUT PRO 3 delivers
next-generation modularity that enables
customers to easily configure their device
to suit a variety of applications and tasks.
Plug in; bolt on, and achieve more on the
go. There’s no need to throw out a Psion
mobile device when business needs change:
customers can simply change or add the
necessary module to make it more usable.
It Builds on Mobility
The WORKABOUT PRO 3’s Natural Task
Support™ means mobile workers get the
job done faster and more comfortably
since it’s purpose-built to the right level of
ruggedness, ergonomics and usability for
any environment.
It starts with a full-VGA display for finer
detail and easier readability, and an
ergonomic keypad designed for one-hand
operation. But it also comes down to
intangible things like the way it feels in your
hand.
Rugged Reliability
The WORKABOUT PRO 3 performs
wherever your work takes you. It’s
technology made tough. Built to
withstand multiple drops from six feet to
concrete, the WORKABOUT PRO 3 easily
handles shock and vibration. Its IP65 rating
protects it against dust and water sprayed
from all directions.
