We are currently testing a Nexus 7 Rooted and Unlocked with USB OTG Cable and Honeywell USB scanner
Price! A fraction of what some other handhelds cost
Ease of use
Customization - Use SureLock Kiosk Lockdown to prevent abuse or unistall any unwanted apps once rooted.
Nexus 7 can even have multiple users now with JellyBean 4.2.1
2 hand use - A case like the Proporta Google Nexus 7 Case available on amazon could help this
Battery Life - Scanner may draw power significant power from tablet, thinking of trying a bluetooth scanner which would be wireless as well
Fragile - One drop could destroy, case above could prevent this.
Web Catapult is currently limited to a few kinds of worksheets, but they seem to be the ones you would need to have wirelessly. Receive W/O a PO, Price Check, Inventory Label, Inventory Adjustment etc.
To Access Web Catapult:
Server must have Static IP
On any device with browser, navigate to <IP Address>:8080/ecr/mobile
Use your regular login
I have even used my android phone to access web catapult. I hope this helps. I am curious to hear what your experiences & input if you have tried anything.
