- skeye.dart with faster processor and more memory

Hannover/Germany, 23/01/2012. (euro adhoc) - Hoeft & Wessel now offers the
Android operating system on its mobile terminals for the very first time. The
skeye.dart model in convenient PDA format is now also available with the Android
version 2.3.6 (Gingerbread). This makes the company the first in the industry to
combine a mobile data capture device for the special requirements of wholesale
and retail with the Android operating system. In the German retail sector Hoeft
& Wessel is the market leader for mobile terminals deployed in enterprise
resource planning (ERP) systems.

This provides the sector in question with clear benefits. By using Android as
the world´s leading Smartphone operating system on its professional data capture
devices in branch outlets and in warehouses the wholesale and retail segment is
provided with a consistent system platform for customers and employees alike.
Using the Android mobile data capture device, employees are given unlimited
access to information of relevance to processes, e.g. from the ERP system. At
the same time, customers can receive further selected product information online
in the shop and immediately via their mobile or smart phones.  What is also

roughly one third enhanced computing power, RAM twice as high and faster

VGA touch screen provides a future-proof platform even for the most demanding

"With its first Android handheld, Hoeft & Wessel once again delivers proof of
its core expertise, namely Customising. We offer various operating systems on
our mobile terminals, depending on our customers´ requirements," explains Dr
Andreas Mueller, Head of Development for mobile solutions at Hoeft & Wessel. The
specialist for mobile terminals, ticketing and parking systems has already
carried out a first live installation of the Android operating system: the Dutch
navy deploys the Hoeft & Wessel terminal skeye.dart as a wireless communications
system. With the freely programmable operating system, especially secure
communication on the ships is possible both via voice and data transmission via
a single handheld. 

The benefits of Android are quite obvious: it has developed into a leading
Smartphone operating system with a correspondingly high level of acceptance and
familiarity amongst developers, offering manifold applications and excellent,
intuitive touch screen operation. An open-source system reduces the dependency
on market players, gives software developers various programming options and it
provides a high degree of security.

Hoeft & Wessel AG assumes that the significance of the Android operating system
will also increase in the field of the professional, particularly robust mobile
terminals. Mueller: "We already are well prepared for the future requirements at
this stage, thus underscoring our claim and sophistication as a technology
