barcode scanner attachment

I need something like, but that will work with Android or a really cheap iPod.

I am willing to purchase whatever Android phone, Android tablet, or cheap iPod is needed.

I do 200+ scans per day and don't want to use the CAMERA because of points talked about on
What do you recommend ?
  ** I don't want to carry my Android/iPod and a seperate bluetooth/etc scanner
  ** I want the bluetooth/etc scanner inside of the Android/iPod case
       so the CASE makes it ONE thing to carry

We were looking at these ScanFobs from Serialio but the operating environment didn't fit our needs (cold storage). They're cheap, have software for iOS and Android--they actually recommend Android as the software has more features.  A phone's/tablet's volume rocker can be used as the scan button. Attachment isn't quite as nice as in that picture as it's not integrated into a case but rather consists of using some 3M adhesive.
