End-of-Life of Extended Support for Windows Embedded 6.5
A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about the most effective and efficient approach to migrating to Android devices, and how there was a great deal of noise in the marketplace concerning the looming end-of-support for Windows CE and Windows Mobile. This week it finally happened, a culmination of rolling end-of-life notices that have been ongoing for the last year and a half. And when the last of those days finally came, a distinctive millennium bug-like silence was in the air as the moment device manufacturers and software companies have been warning us about for the past few years came and went quietly.
As you may have read recently, StayLinked and Zebra have officially announced the release of SmartTEK, the highly-anticipated Android solution for TekTerm users currently available on select Zebra devices. SmartTEK is the culmination of hard work from both teams which has resulted in a clear migration path to Android for TekTerm customers. Because TekTerm is a well-established product whose architecture can accommodate various installation configurations, we also understand that this solution evokes a number of questions from our partners around the globe.
On November 1, 2019, StayLinked and Zebra Technologies officially released SmartTEK to support TekTerm TE for Android™-based Zebra mobile computers. SmartTEK provides customers a migration path to easily transition their legacy devices to more modern, feature-rich mobile computers. Zebra will be offering the StayLinked SmartTEK solution for customers using MIS/TekRF solutions who want to migrate to Android allowing customers with SAP and IBM host applications to run on Zebra Android devices. The SmartTEK solution is also a replacement for customers using MIS/TekRF to emulate SAP applications, IBM 5250 and 3270, and VT emulations.

Modernized Apps: Creating New Terminal Emulation Screens with SmartTE
Here at StayLinked, we're pretty excited about SmartTE and what it can do for legacy warehouse applications. If you've seen the demo application, you know exactly what we're talking about. And if you haven't, download the latest StayLinked client (available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and available soon on Windows 10 devices) and see for yourself just how easy it is to use the latest touchscreen devices with your legacy warehouse applications.
Today’s handheld devices-- smart phones, tablets and new larger screen phablets -- are everywhere. In the warehouse, for example, the built-in camera and Bluetooth software on Android devices are taking over.
