Multitouch terminals gain ground

Makers are also releasing more multifunction models to boost product value further.



  • LCD screens continue to rule: LCD and LED screens are the main options. The former dominate production, with LED alternatives used only in a few high-end models. The mainstream sizes are 18 to 80in, but makers can customize based on specifications.
  • Multifunction models on the rise: Following the multifunctionality trend, products for the high end combine a camera, bar-code scanner, thermal printer and magnetic-swipecard reader. Metal keyboards and external USB interface are becoming popular.
  • Wireless models becoming popular: Wireless interactive/touchscreen terminals are expected to gain traction as well, with Bluetooth the main direction. Wired units based on an RJ-45 connection, however, will remain strong with an 80 percent share of output.
