An RF Gun is a rugged enterprise device such as a Zebra MC 67 or Intermec CK 3.
One of the questions that we get asked a lot of the time is, couldn't I just use a phone device to do the same thing with the camera or a Bluetooth scanner?
Here are some points to take into account when making a decision:
The majority of our customers who have implemented rugged RF scanners get a return of investment on each unit for approximately five years. There is no doubt that an iOS or Android phone are cheaper, but the total cost of ownership will always be more over a five year period due to costly repairs and breakages. This is why you see Zebra and Honeywell coming out with devices that run the Android environment, as the rugged device is the only type of device which will stand up to the warehouse environment.
