Essen, Germany (8 October 2013) – Carlson Software Inc. is introducing a new and improved version of its affordable Qmini data collector. The rugged, but lightweight Qmini2 provides fast processing, yet fits comfortably in one hand.

Weighing just 11 ounces (315 grams), the Qmini2 includes a 5 megapixel camera and has a 3.7-inch (480 x 640) sunlight-readable display and comes with a stylus for ease of use. Other specifications include:
• Works on Windows Mobile 6.5 OS with a PXA310 processor 806Mhz, 256 RAM
• Provides 8GB non-volatile data storage plus a micro SD card slot
• Comes with Bluetooth (200-250 meter range to CRx with BT handle), WiFi, Internal GPRS module (data and voice) capabilities
• Has an internal 32-channel GNSS receiver (GPS + GLONASS) with SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS) support
• Rated IP65 waterproof and dustproof

The Qmini2 comes with two batteries, a U.S. wall charger, and a soft carrying case. It may be purchased with Carlson’s popular SurvCE data collection software on board, or with Carlson GIS360, which uses both GIS and surveying technology in the field to collect data. For crash or crime reconstruction, The Qmini2 may also be used with Carlson’s CSI Mobile software.

“The Qmini2 continues Carlson's tradition of providing rugged full-featured data collectors at an attractive price,” says Karl Nicholas, director of Special Projects for Carlson Software. “ With GPS + Glonass support and a GSM modem, the Qmini2 delivers cost-effective data collection anywhere in the world.”

Among the most affordable data collectors on the market today, the Qmini2 is available for purchase from your local dealer. For more information or to see the Qmini2 in action, stop by the Carlson Stand #3.097, Hall C, or outdoors at #100 at Intergeo, Oct. 8-10 in Essen, Germany.
