NEW! MOCHA SUPPORT
FreePOS on Windows XP Tablet Edition, your
service staff can take orders right at the
table. FreePOS even supports credit card
processing wirelessly (the customer signs the
tablet computer's screen!)
When using a
wireless system, run FreePOS on 1 or 2
wireless computers if you are using a consumer
grade wireless access point. Multiple wireless
terminals can cause system performance problems
unless you install multiple access points &
signal boosters. For larger installations, we
recommend using a commercial grade wireless
computer that supports 800x600 video resolution
and has built in 802.11B/G wireless should be
acceptable for FreePOS. Using a new technology
called Mocha, FreePOS can run on Palm,
Windows CE and other sub-800x600 portable
devices. Our preferred operating system is
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition.
