  • Excellent scanning performance with its 2D Imager scanner.
  • Lots of features (Scanner, Camera, Wi-Fi, WWAN, GPS, HF RFID) and snappy device performance.
  • Small, lightweight and rugged form factor.
  • Deploy from TracerPlus works quickly and Camera, GPS, Scanner and NFC all perform well.


  • Deploy issue of drop down data using MTP method however works with web deploy method. This could be a file system issue with Android and how it interacts with Windows. Web deploy worked without issue.
  • Would like to have seen 802.11ac in this model.
  • MSRP higher than expected for a Janam device.


The Janam XT2 is a rugged handheld device with a lot of features. We like the light and rugged form factor and the 2D scanner tested performed very well. When using with TracerPlus we found that all features worked as intended and deploying projects via MTP worked aside from a drop down data issue. The full featured model comes with everything you need including 2D Imager, 4G LTE, GPS, NFC, added memory and an MSR reader at a comparable price to some competitors with the same specs. We would recommend this device for anyone out in the field or in need of a rugged, waterproof device in need of excellent scanning and device performance.
