This table may contain errors and is not intended to replace all functionality provided by the hardware and software. This table can be used as guidance to find the right product mix that works for you. Compatibility also depends on the operating system and hardware that you have, we are not responsible for malfunctioning of your hardware and/or driver incompatabilities. These solutions have been tested on base line hardware and software but this is no guarantee that it always works. You always must test it in your situation.

Notes: * Windows 7 Phone Edition does not provide Bluetooth SSP support and therefore cannot connect to devices like Barcode Scanners and other peripherals that rely on the virtual serial port profile (VCOM). Although WiFi is often available, the market is too small to develop generic applications supporting this, also here there support from the peripherals to interface over WiFi with the Windows 7 Phone Edition is too small and developments may be possible only on a customer by customer basis. We don't say no but it depends on a lot of factors to make it work. Please contact us if it is very important to you. Alternatively a device can be searched that supports HID mode for Windows 7 Phone Edition, please contact us because we do have such devices for iOS for example.
