Socket Mobile Launches DuraSled for iPhone X and iPhone 11

October 7, 2019 by Socket Mobile | PRESS RELEASES

NEWARK, Calif., October 07, 2019 – Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), a leading innovator of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity launches a new family of scanning sleds - DuraSled™ for the iPhone X and 11. The DuraSled series supports all the latest iPhones and the iPod Touch. 

As more companies use iPhone applications to run their businesses, there is a greater need for a single-handed solution that combines both the iPhone and an enterprise-grade scanner. The DuraSled is that solution; it protects the phones from tumbles and provides a robust charging solution for all environments. The DuraSled is easy-to-use and ideal for delivery services, stock counting, ticketing and other application-driven mobile solutions.

“The challenge in today’s fast-moving world is to deploy mobile solutions that provide a return on investment, especially when mobile phones are constantly changing, and competitive pressures require options that support BYOD (bring your own device) policies for seasonal or temporary workers. The DuraSled family has been designed in a modular way, so users can meet these ever-changing requirements,” says Vanessa Lindsay, Senior Product Manager.

The DuraSled’s core elements remain constant, enabling seamless transitions to the ever-changing iPhone models, using the same application and same DuraSled charging infrastructure. DuraSled already supports the iPhone 6, 7, 8 and iPhone X series, and will support the entire iPhone 11 series by Q4.

With DuraSleds available for all iPhone models, replacement options are reduced to a fraction of the cost of an entire scanning sled replacement. The core components don’t change when switching to a new iPhone model, enabling users to maintain their mobile deployment investments for a relevant number of years.

DuraSleds are currently available for purchase on Socket Mobile’s online store and will be available via numerous online resellers, such as Amazon, in the coming weeks.
