    Anyone have any experience with Bluetooth barcode scanners? My company is developing an iPad app to work in conjunction with our Windows-based enterprise asset management suite, and as we all know, just because a device is 'Bluetooth' doesn't guarantee operability on an iPad.

    On PCs, any barcode scanner acting as a datawedge works, since it essentially sits between the scanner and the keyboard, and acts as a substitute for the keyboard. So I'm looking for a similar solution for the iPad.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry. I missed this one. I use one of these gizmos at work (and no, I'm not a greeter for WalMart). I'll put some thought into it. My scanner only uses BT for label printing, and has telephone/3G for immediate record keeping.

    Socket Mobile has a complete line up of bluetooth barcode scanners that are Apple certified to work with the iPad. They have a full SDK and great support as well so you may want to check them out.
