Consumer review (

Didn't work with Windows Mobile


May work better on non-Windows Mobile devices.

Cheap, kinda worked on some devices

We tried it on 3 or 4 Windows Mobile devices and on the ones that we managed to actually get a scan with, the software would crash randomly and lock up the whole device. We even exchanged one device for a second, in hopes that it was a faulty unit, but...

Consumer review (

Good basic mobile barcode reader


Reads all major shipping carrier and postal bar codes with the right symbologies enabled in the socket configuration.

Has no internal illumination mechanism for reading in dim light (like office, halls, underneath trees).

Product Specifications

Turn Your Pocket PC 2003 or Palm Tungsten PDA into a high performance mobile bar code scanner! If you're a mobile professional using a Pocket PC 2003 with SDIO slot or Palm Tungsten for an application requiring extensive data entry, Socket's SDIO In-Hand Scan Card may provide an incredible increase in productivity. Using manual or virtual keyboards is the slowest, most error-prone method of entering data into mobile computers. If the data to be entered is bar coded, using a bar code scanner is 50 times faster and 10,000 times more accurate than manual data entry. Socket's SDIO In-Hand Scan Card brings a new level of affordability and convenience to mobile data collection by combining Socket's Battery Friendly SDIO technology with the world's smallest bar code scanner. Just plug the card into your PDA, launch the included SocketScan software, and read bar code data into any Windows or Palm application as if it had been typed on a keyboard. Socket designed the SDIO In-Hand Scan Card to be mobility friendly - to use minimal power. Drawing only 8.0 mA (26.4 mW) in idle mode, the SDIO In-Hand Scan Card lets you operate for hours without having to replace or recharge your mobile computer's batteries. Plus, the included SocketScan software directs scanned data into any Windows or Palm application as if it were manually typed.
