Nautiz X4 from Handheld
An all-new rugged handheld computer with something of the style of a smartphone has been launched by Handheld Group. The Nautiz X4, while not in fact quite as rugged as the company’s existing X1 smartphone, nevertheless meets many of the requirements for use in tough environments, including the provision of a physical keypad below the touch screen.

It is a traditional Microsoft Windows device, running Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 Professional. The processor is a Texas Instruments AM3703 unit running at 1 GHz, which is supported by 512MB of RAM and a 1GB of flash storage, plus a user-accessible microSD card slot.

The resistive touch screen is a 3.5in high-brightness sunlight-readable VGA unit. The physical keyboard can have either QWERTY or numeric layout.

The device is pretty tough, bearing an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance and a MIL-STD-810G rating for vibration and shocks. It is said to have withstood 26 1.22-metre drops to concrete and a 500-cycle tumble test.

Connectivity is provided by Wi-Fi to 802.11b/g/n standard, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR and so-called 3.8G mobile phone and data. There is an option of either a 1D laser scanner or 2D imager – both by Honeywell.

Other features include a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and integrated u-blox GPS. The battery is a high-capacity 4000mAh li-ion unit.

* There is also a ticket-reader version of the X4, featuring a built-in advanced contactless smartcard reader from Arcontia for secure transactions and ticket validation.
