ATLANTA - September 26, 2005 - LXE Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged wireless computers that improve the performance of supply-chain execution applications, today announced the introduction of the MX7 wireless handheld computer. The rugged MX7 has been designed to be at home anywhere in your warehouse or distribution center. The comfortable, compact computer's easy-grip handle with two-finger trigger and molded rubber grip makes it ideal for picking applications - but it's not just a picking terminal. The unit's multi-range scanning capabilities enable bar code reads from four inches to 40 feet, so operators can perform warehouse moves ranging from receiving to full pallet put-aways with the same version of the computer. No matter what the scanning distance, the operator will always have the correct tool in hand. And if your warehouse is noisy, there's a Good Scan bar code vibrator inside the unit that can be used to verify successful scans. In addition to being versatile, the MX7 is both smart and fast. Driven by the latest Windows® CE 5.0 operating system and an Intel® XScale® PXA255 processor, the MX7 will zip no
matter how sophisticated the application. And with the 802.11b/g radio and Bluetooth option, you're prepared for the real-time business opportunities of today and tomorrow. "If you are looking for a compact, durable terminal that can do more than just picking," says Doug Brown, Director of Product Management, "you'll be hard-pressed to find a better value than the MX7. It's light enough for piece picking yet tough enough to take whatever comes its way." The MX7 also includes LXE's ToughTalkTM technology. ToughTalk is LXE's specialized combination of LXE's trademark ruggedized system design, advanced audio circuitry and noise canceling techniques which enable the MX7 to support today's industrial-grade voice recognition applications. With the MX7, customers can run both their voice logistics applications and their traditional barcode scanning applications on the same unit. The unit's five, single-touch function keys will provide operators with quick, one click, access to
specific functions within their application. With the MX7's fully mappable keyboard, customers can customize any key on the MX7 to deliver custom data to their application. About LXE Inc.
