Urovo at GITEX 2016


Urovo made its 5th appearance at the prestigious GITEX (“Gulf Information Technology Exhibition”) from 16 Oct to 20 Oct, 2016. On this occasion, Urovo wanted to take the opportunity to present our two main focuses for the future.

First is our concept of the smart payment device, which we believe is the future cornerstone of the payment industry. While consumers continually raise their expectations of the quality of service they receive, the smart payment device enables merchants to meet these expectations by automating business processes and integrating them with the payment process.

The Urovo i9000S SmartPOS is just the right device for the next generation payment industry. Built as a portable payment device based off the Android operating system, this device is armed with a magnetic strip reader, EMV chip reader, NFC reader, and a 2 inch thermal printer. Many visitors felt that it was the ideal all-in-one device presented at GITEX.




Our second focus is to embrace the up and coming Rugged Smartphone mobility arena. The Urovo i6300 Rugged Smartphone, featuring a full touch 5 inch HD screen, a 1D and 2D scan engine and drop-tested from 1.5m for ruggedness, is the answer to the industry demand for a more ergonomic and touch-centric device with integrated data collection options (VDC Research, 2015).

The crowd turnout at the Urovo booth was extremely encouraging. Over 200 visitors, including distributors, software integrators and end users in the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe expressed interest in the i9000S SmartPOS and the i6300 Rugged Smartphone, and all demonstration units were grabbed up at the end of the show.
