RAM memory has doubled to 1GB SDRAM and storage has doubled as well; users now get 4GB eMMC. Onboard WiFi has been upgraded to 802.11 a/b/g/n for maximum wireless voice/data speed and flexibility. Most importantly, the new E430M2 is based on Android 4.1 ("Jelly Bean"), which offers full dual-core support as well as numerous technical and user interface improvements over Android 2.3.4 ("Ginger Bread") used in the older version.
As in prior versions, the E430M2 provides a modern look and feel with state-of-the-art handheld device technology in a tough and rugged device. Building on the overall design of the E430 series, this new model remains completely compatible with all prior peripherals, including barcode or RFID readers (available are a 2D barcode reader, 1D laser, as well as HF RFID). The device includes a 2-megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel rear documentation camera with illumination LED.
On the ruggedness side, all Winmate Handheld Series devices are designed to be used in harsh environments. The E430M2 offers IP67 sealing (standard model, w/o sensors), a 5-foot drop specification, and a -30 to 60 degree Celsius operating temperature range to allow the device to be used in any harsh environment.
