Wavelink has recently expanded features for its Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) version 1.3.5 for Android, including the addition of support for double-byte character languages and customisation options for soft input panel (SIP) keyboards.

According to Forrester's David Johnson, in�applications where the device needs to be fully ruggedized, Android is preferred because manufacturers can build the devices precisely to suit the need. With this latest release of TE, Wavelink is expanding Android's flexibility with the addition of customisable SIP keyboards, as well as bringing the platform to Asia-Pacific warehouse users with the support for double-byte character languages.

The addition of customisable SIP keyboards eliminates the need to toggle between different command and control keyboards, allowing application developers to combine the most frequently used keys together in one place. This will enable end users to work more efficiently with a more workflow-friendly keyboard interface.

The Asia-Pacific region has been slow to adopt ruggedized devices, due to the high cost of most devices. However, Android devices are typically more cost-effective and TE support for the double-byte character languages used in the Asia-Pacific region makes it easier for the Android platform to be adopted by businesses in that area.

"Android is a very valuable platform for this industry, because it has a lot of customisation options," said Storm. "By adding support for the platform in the Asia-Pacific region, we're giving customers in this part of the world the option to preserve their existing infrastructure investment, while still providing them with a clear, easy and inexpensive path to a more efficient application workflow. Terminal Emulation is rapidly growing in adoption worldwide and within task worker operations. By adding customisation options that make it easier to implement in a wider variety of regions, we're facilitating TE's continued growth."
