Newark, CA /PRNewswire/ -- Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), a leading innovator of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity, is announcing the expansion of the SocketScan product line to include a 2D barcode scanner in a compact design. The SocketScan S840 fulfills the demands of 1D and 2D barcode scanning, while appealing to a tighter budget. (Learn more about the S840)

The S840 is priced at $359.00 MSRP, approximately 25% cheaper compared to the prior version S850 2D barcode scanner at $476.00 MSRP. The S840 is available for purchase now.

The Socket Mobile S840 is a fast-scanning 2D/1D imager barcode scanner with Bluetooth® wireless technology. The S840 is one of the smallest and lightest 2D barcode scanners, fitting in your pocket and the palm of your hand when attached to a smartphone. The S840 can scan barcodes printed on labels or displayed on device screens. It reads all the most popular 2D/1D barcodes and is perfect for retail point of sale, inventory management, sales order entry, field service, and other mobile business applications. The scanner is certified by Apple® for iOS devices (iPad®, iPhone®, iTouch®) and compatible with Android and Windows® smartphones and tablets"

"Socket Mobile recognizes the advantages and demand for 2D barcode scanners, but understands the typical 2D imager carries an intimidating price. Similar to our D740 and S740, which have been very well received, we intend to break the mold with the S840, and be the affordable, attachable 2D option in the market," said James Lopez, Vice President of Marketing.

The S840 works with our ever-expanding line of DuraCase solutions. Compatible with popular mobile devices, DuraCase is ideal for mobile workers who are looking to use a handheld device and scanner, protect their devices, and prefer the convenience of a single charging device.
