Filemaker Go and an iPhone Scanner working together?

It seems impossible, but here is my question anyway:

 

While running FM Go on an iPhone ot iPod Touch, can the same device also scan bar codes and enter the data is a field on the data base? I know it can be done because the Apple Stores use handheld devices to scan data into a database in a live setting.

 

Has anyone worked this out and made it both rugged for factory or retail use, economical to buy and fast enough to work in a high pressure environment?

 

Clearly an bluetooth scanner would be viable option but my client would to see the entire funtionality rolled into one device.

 

I am looking forward to your comments
