It was originally the Symbol LS2208 and part of Symbol Solutions before they became Motorola Solutions which eventually was bought out by Zebra Technologies.

By: POSGuys - 1/18/2016

It got me wondering, what exactly are the differences between the DS4208 and the DS4308? This is POSGal Camille, I reviewed the older DS4208 four years ago. Check out the two videos below or continue reading to get to the meat of the article. TLDR! (The too long didn't read version for the busy entrepreneur.)
