Symbol Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:SBL), The Enterprise Mobility Company(TM), today introduced the Symbol LS 3408 family of advanced data capture products. Symbol's new long-range industrial scanning line is targeted to inventory and asset management applications in the manufacturing, warehouse and "ruggedized" retail market segments.
