Portable Productivity for the Field Worker that Demands Mobility

When you work in the field and on the move you have a device that is small enough to carry in the hand, big enough to take the knocks, and powerful enough to get your work done. You don’t have to compromise your mobility for productivity.


Keyed in to the Needs of the Mobile Operator

Make the most of the 5” screen without losing space to on-screen navigation buttons, while providing ease of use in all environments. Program common tasks to physical function keys and speed up your workflow.


Professional gear that’s ready for the rough and tumble

You can rely on your equipment being able to work everywhere you need to for as long as you need to. That means you can get the job done without worrying about getting caught out by equipment that isn’t up to the task. When you’re on the road work a full day on a single battery, or for those really heavy tasks or long days simply change the battery.


Truly Stand out Sunlight performance

When you’re working outside you’ll find the display easy to read and operate, without the backlight draining your battery. Whether in cloud or full sun, avoid simple data entry errors and avoid making simple mistakes caused by mis-reading the display.


The only handheld field computing option

By deploying Android in the field you get access to the most modern, usable, and fastest growing mobile ecosystem. Being GMS certified means you have full access to Google’s entire ecosystem of Android applications and services including Google’s own suite of tools. Access to the Google Play Store not only allows easy update of installed applications, it also gives you access to the millions of other applications already published. As a GMS certified device you are guaranteed that the Nomad 5 handheld meets Google’s system capability and performance requirements.
