Take advantage of the little green robot making it easier to do business in your organization. There has been a recent uptick in Android™ enabled rugged mobile computers being used in the warehouse.  For a long time these devices ran almost exclusively on Windows based operating systems. Below we discuss the trends and reasons why Android™ is seeing a movement in the industrial space.

Evaluating the Android™ Movement

Well, for one, Android™ controls well over two-thirds of the mobile market, and is familiar to most end users. This popularity is derived from its principally open-sourced platform which gives users free range to modify and develop applications. A big plus for some software developers and IT professionals. Another factor is the approaching end of support on older operating systems like Windows CE and Windows Mobile. Additionally, each new update to the Android™ operating system is free, fully-functional, and open-source. All in all Android™ offers a versatility and openness that other operating systems cannot match.
