Ikôn
A Rugged PDA For The Real World
Is there anything it can’t
do?
Take a Windows®-based
PDA with 3G HSDPA. Add
more radio capabilities with
Assisted GPS, WiFi and
Bluetooth®. Give it a camera
and a full VGA display.
Design it with Natural
Task Support™, the best
ergonomics in the business.
Now drop it on to concrete
from five feet. In the shower.
Pick it up and get to work.
You’ve just invented
the Ikôn.

Ikôn
The Sleek, Rugged PDA
Look What’s Built In
There are rugged handheld computers and there is Ikôn, the most sophisticated mobile
workforce automation device on the planet.
Pick it up and you notice a few things right away. It just feels right. The way it rests in
your hand. The balance. The feel. Next, you’ll notice the big, bright, full VGA display and
the QWERTY keyboard option, colourcoded for usability. Fire it up. You’ve got
everything you need to turbo-charge
your mobile workforce. Integrated imager
or scanner. Colour camera. WiFi for the
local network and 3G HSDPA for further
afield. Plus Bluetooth® and Assisted
GPS to find your way to the next task.
Breakthrough antenna technology means
you stay connected even at the edge
of the coverage zone; and the longest
battery life in the market so you stay
supported all shift long… and beyond.
Queue Busting
This is what mobile productivity was
supposed to look like. This is Ikôn.

Features & Benefits
Look what’s built in
Ikôn integrates data capture, voice and
data communications in one compact
device. Wireless capability includes
WiFi, cellular 3G HSDPA and Bluetooth®
connectivity. And Assisted GPS
harnesses the power of location-based apps.
Mobile workers love Ikôn
Because it’s built on the principles of
Natural Task Support™, Ikôn helps mobile
workers get the job done faster and
more comfortably. The 3.7-inch full VGA
display makes it incredibly easy to read
even complex graphics and CAD drawings
in low-light situations. The ergonomic
keypad is designed for one-hand use with
clear, unambiguous feedback. Plus great
balance, hand-feel… and stunning looks.
Rugged beyond the ratings
Mobile workers drop things. It’s
unavoidable. So Ikôn withstands drops
from 5 feet (1.5 metres) to polished
concrete. And since mobile environments
are unpredictable, Ikôn has an IP65
rating, for protection against dust and
water sprayed from all directions. Finally,
don’t worry about an external antenna
getting in the way or breaking – because
there isn’t one.
Longer battery life
The highest battery capacity on the
market ensures a full-day of productivity
for mobile workers. And we’ve tweaked
the operating system and added utilities
to squeeze every last coulomb out of it
(like using the minimum intensity for the
scanner unless it needs more power, then
ramping up automatically).
Expand into an unknown future
Unlike most sealed, rugged handheld
computers, Ikôn gives you three
expansion slots (USB, Serial and DC Jack)
so you can add functionality as your
needs change.
Our growing ecosystem of developer
partners are constantly creating new
hardware modules for Psion devices
(biometrics or RFID anyone?)

CASE STUDY
Field Service
INSERT
The French leader in
billposting renews its
technology with Ikôn
• Communication is faster in the
field force thanks to wireless
synchronization
• WiFi connectivity allows for
optimized and more reliable
communications between Head
Office and the field
• GPS functionality allows
for geocoding of all media
to ensure precise location
information that helps
optimization planning.

Accessories
Quad Docking Unit
Provides Ethernet connectivity and simultaneous
charging for up to 4 devices. Anti-slip feet enable
usage on tables or desks and the design allows
access to all buttons and keys. And don’t worry
about using it after a day in the field – drain holes and
a rugged mating connector mean that you can place
the Ikon in the unit even if wet.
Base Unit Desktop Dock
Charge an Ikôn and spare battery simultaneously
while connecting via USB. Designed with the same
key access and drain holes as the Quad Docking
Unit above.
Powered Vehicle Cradle 12-24 V
With a single hand release mechanism, a speaker for
hands free calling, a power indicator LED, a spare
stylus holder and multiple mounting options, the
Ikôn’s powered vehicle cradle keeps your workers
productive. Non-powered option available.
Field Maintenance
“This renewal aims ... to develop
new services for our customers,
particularly by taking pictures
of the tasks done using the new
snapshot functionality. We also
want to communicate faster
with our field force thanks to
wireless synchronization, and
to secure productivity gains
thanks to enhanced mobile
applications.” – Insert
Carry Case Pouch
Made of durable Koskin material, this carry case
includes a locking, swivel belt clip and quick, easy
access to the Ikôn. It also provides easy access to the
bottom connector and DC port.
Hand Strap Kit
A secure, ergonomic way to carry the Ikôn. It is
attached by fixing the ends of the strap to the
anchors located on the back and bottom of the
unit. Tether comes attached to retractable stylus –
no assembly required.
Meter Reading
Cigarette Lighter Adapter
Gives users the flexibility of being able to power
and charge the Ikôn on the go and fits any standard
12VDC car cigarette receptacle.
