Because the workflow demands from industry to industry can vary significantly, a one-size-fits-all mobile computer with scanner won’t cut it. That’s why Honeywell mobile and vehicle-mounted computer devices are built with a purpose. Regardless of your industry, we design our computer devices to be environmentally compatible for workflow ease, improved productivity, and a lower total cost of ownership.

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is a Mobile Computer?

A: A mobile computer is a device that has the capabilities of a PC or laptop in a smaller size. Some mobile computers have integrated scanners and imaging technology to capture data and are also capable of executing and providing services and applications like a typical computer. Mobile computers are also known as handheld computer devices.

Q: What is the difference between an industrial or enterprise mobile computer and a consumer mobile phone?

A mobile computer for industrial or enterprise use is a computing device that mobile workforces can carry with them, and that allows them to perform computing tasks that would normally require a desktop PC or laptop. A consumer mobile phone isn't designed for a specific industry: it is generally less rugged and not capable of withstanding more challenging industrial environments. Consumer mobile phones are designed for general personal use, such as web access, calls and texts, but do not offer fit-for-purpose design and ease of use for repetitive tasks and data collection workflows.

Q: Can a mobile computer replace a laptop or desktop?

Mobile computers that are designed for industrial tasks and workflows have many benefits: they can enhance productivity, help your workers be more productive and enable users to work from anywhere. Although there are mobile computing devices built for every work environment, they won’t replace the laptops or computers for everything. For the tasks that include working on spreadsheets, for example, a laptop with a standard-size keyboard is faster to use.

Q: What form factors, or types, of industrial mobile devices are there?

A: Honeywell has a wide range of mobile computers and mobility solutions suitable for many industries, including handheld, hazardous location, healthcare, industrial cold-storage, vehicle-mounted, wearable and voice enabled computers.
