For intensive field activities within geofield, the military or construction rugged laptops can often prove too bulky and awkward to operate comfortably in certain conditions, while PDAs may not provide the screen size needed for certain detailed graphics such as maps or design documentation. If these are just the type of constraints your organization has been experiencing we are glad to report that there is an alternative. Brand new to market is the Algiz XRW from Handheld; an ultra-rugged notebook that has been especially designed from the ground up to be the best fit for the most rigorous field service requirements.

Handheld’s Algiz XRW is extremely slim and weighs a mere 1.5 kilograms – which makes operation in the field all that more convenient and comfortable even during long shifts. But don’t let these features fool you – the ‘XRW’ stands for ‘eXtreme Road Warrior’, and this highly rugged device certainly lives up to its name. Its full keyboard and mouse-touchpad, illuminated by two LED lights, are fully sealed, and the device carries an overall IP65 rating against sand, dust and water. It also meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibration, drops and extreme temperatures.

Another major advantage of the Algiz XRW is its large 10.1-inch widescreen with MaxView screen technology. This ensures detailed graphics or documentation are all clearly visible even in direct sunlight. The device also features a fast and powerful 2 GHz Intel Atom processor as standard and includes a 64 Gigabit solid state disk with 2 Gigabits of DDR2 RAM. Conveniently, the device runs Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, just like your office PCs, but with the Algiz XRW you can now do all your work in the field under almost any conditions.

But the features don’t stop there. Mobile capabilities include integrated GPS functionality, Bluetooth for short-range wireless connection to other equipment, and 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN if you have a local network you’d like to sync with. An optional 3G modem can provide high-speed data transmission. The Algiz XRW also offers optional Gobi 2000 technology – enabling you to work on your choice of wireless frequency anywhere in the world. And you can put in a full day’s work, courtesy of a 57.6 Wh battery that works for a full 8 hours on a charge.

Other useful features include a built-in 2-megapixel autofocus camera for video conferencing in the field and an SD card for backing up field data. You can also choose from multiple connectivity options using two USB 2.0 ports and one RS232. The Algiz XRW also comes with an optional Kensington lock for in-the-field security.

So, with a rugged tool as advanced as Handheld’s Algiz XRW, you know you’ll never have to sacrifice performance when you head out into the field.
