Anyone heard any details about new devices we are getting? An ETL told me we were getting rid of the my device and getting an android device. Anybody heard anything about this?
I LOVE ANDROID.MyDevices are slated for End of Life soon. There are 3 different Android powered devices being piloted at stores as we speak right now vying for being the top pick. The selections are the Motorola TC70 (rugged version), Motorola TC55 (non-boot molding), and the Honeywell Dolphin 75e. Obviously with the two Motorola devices (upgraded version of the MC40 that was passed over years ago for the MyDevices) have removal batteries, and the Honeywell one does as well. CETerm/RFAPP's was integrated on the Android platform long ago with the MC40 and was in a working condition, it's just porting over myWork full functionality onto the new environment.
Looking forward to 2017.
Consumer devices should never be used in a production environment. They didn't even have the in-stocks and pricing programs written when they rolled these pieces of shit out. Spot considered it's production units afterthoughts. Spot took that pistol and pointed it straight down and shot their own people in the foot and hobbled them from the git go.I like and use Apple products a lot. They're good for the right purpose. But I also feel like they don't work well for what Target wants to do and using it with the current systems was never going to work well.
Im sure Target had some sort of deal with Apple that made sense from a money standpoint. It was just executed very poorly.
I still haven't forgiven them for killing NOP on the PDA.I think one of the most stupid ( and there are MANY stupid things about the Me Devices) they did was to keep taking APs from the PDA's when they knew the My Devices were crap & they were working on it's replacement.
