Xsilva Systems, makers of unified retail point of sale tools sold under the LightSpeed brand, has announced upgrades to the hardware kit for its mobile point of sale platform, LightSpeed Mobile. LightSpeed Mobile Hardware Kits will now ship with Linēa-pro 4 for the four generation iPod touch or Linēa-pro 4 for the iPhone 4 from Infinite Peripherals.

LightSpeed Mobile is the mobile retail extension to the LightSpeed Point of Sale system for Mac that transforms the way retailers sell to their customers. The application, when paired with a hardware kit that consists of a supported iOS mobile device and a sled that adds a 1D barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader, offers retailers an alternative to traditional retail systems.

Retailers using LightSpeed Mobile can now use either the fourth-generation iPod touch or the iPhone 4 as their hardware of choice. The first generation of the Linēa-pro sled, the same hardware used in Apple’s retail stores, was compatible only with the second and third generations of the iPod touch.

Version 1.4 of LightSpeed Mobile is available for US$4.99 from the Apple App Store and requires LightSpeed Server.
