    If you’re currently running mobile devices with Windows mobile operating systems, it’s time to talk about a conversion plan. All Windows CE and Windows Embedded Handheld devices will be reaching end of support from Microsoft by 2021. In fact, the first version to go end of support is just two months away!

    Don’t wait until it’s too late. Stay ahead of security patches, work with mobile devices a new generation of workers will understand and future-proof your operations with the most cutting edge hardware by migrating to Android OS.
     

    Stay up-to-date with security patches

    The main advantage you have with an Android device is you know you will be getting current security updates. If you’re on Windows mobile, you will lose extended support on these dates:

    Extended Support End Dates

    • Windows Embedded CE 6.0 – 4/10/2018
    • Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 – 1/14/2020
    • Windows Embedded Compact 7 – 4/13/2021

    Since these operating systems—and therefore these devices—will no longer be supported by Microsoft, you will no longer be able to have the most current security patches and updates.
     

    Get ahead of the trend… don’t follow

    Today’s workforce is more familiar with Android than Windows mobile. This is a trend that will only increase as time goes on. Get ahead of the trend by moving to Android now.

    AbeTech has on-site Application Services engineers who can improve the usability of your apps with advanced platforms such as StayLinked SmartTE. Your future workers will be more comfortable with the mobile devices in your operations, and increased productivity will follow.
     

    Future-proof your operations

    You want the latest features from your mobile devices—hands free operations, voice over IP, and integration with the latest Mobile Device Management platforms. Android is the way forward, and in fact you may be missing out on certain features of your mobile computers, tablets or scanners if you try to remain on Windows mobile.

    Zebra MC3300: The perfect combination of touchscreen and keypad
