Zebra DS9808-R

The DS9808-R is a ground-breaking POS device that represents two Motorola firsts. The DS9808-R is not only the first combination 1D/2D bar code scanner and RFID reader, it also represents a new RFID product category — the first combination handheld/hands-free UHF RFID reader. In addition to UHF RFID tags, the DS9808-R offers the very latest in imaging technology, delivering record swipe speeds for 1D and 2D bar codes, as well as the ability to capture images and signatures. Available in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
