Apple iPad & Socket Mobile: Together at Last

Socket Mobile recently announced Apple iPad compatibility for their Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner 7X, in addition to their antimicrobial version, the 7XRx. The Apple iPad, in combination with the Socket 7XRx offers great potential for healthcare and medical markets requiring tablet displays and 2D barcode data collection, more specifically, for medication administration, patient ID verification, material management and pharmacy logistics.

While the iPad is a revolutionary device on its own, being paired with the Socket 7XRx could really change the way things are done in the healthcare industry. Even by using the standard 7X, applications can be developed for marketing and other consumer-related uses.

While developers are still working with the units, it’s anticipated that the process of piloting, beta testing and then deployment will begin shortly.
