Introducing Honeywell’s Thor VM1A
The Thor™ VM1A from Honeywell is a new, feature-packed vehicle mounted computer which operates on the Android Mobility Edge platform – it’s been designed to positively impact productivity in forklift environments. This vehicle mount computer will assist your fork truck operators to move and locate products faster – all while reducing errors and saving effort.
VM1A Is Packed With Numerous Breakthrough Features
It’s worth noting that the VM1A features a field-replaceable front panel – better investment protection since you can replace the most commonly damaged part of mobile device. Also, Honeywell’s exclusive SmartDock system enables quick swap-outs between vehicles without touching cabling – minimizing downtime and reducing the number of spare parts needed to be kept in inventory.
Attention users of the prior-generation Honeywell VM1: please note that VM1A is backwards-compatible with docks and cabling.
All of that translates into an extended product lifecycle and lower cost of ownership – keeping your forklift operators up and running and delivering better ROI to your bottom line.

Benefits of Honeywell’s Mobility Edge Platform
Honeywell created the Mobility Edge platform with the concept of a shared chip architecture used across its Android mobile computer line. Mobility Edge has multiple customer benefits. Most significantly, you can achieve one-time application certification – an app certified on a Mobility Edge device will work as intended on any rugged computer in the program. This allows you to utilize multiple form factors within your operation, without incurring excess development expense.
