Speaking about this new product, Mr Martin Nygate, Director of Gentay said:
“Convergence of technologies is increasingly common in consumer products, and there is a growing demand for devices that can be used in hazardous environments that incorporate all the functionality that we have become familiar with in our day to day workplace, such as a fully integrated smartphone. Tasks undertaken in hazardous areas that require cellular connectivity, email access, the need to take pictures and videos as well as to use applications available on the internet, have often required the use of multiple expensive devices, however, the INNOVATION 2 is a single device that will fulfil all these needs.”
