Nautiz X3 Takes Handheld Computing to Smallest, Most Mobile Form

Nautiz X3 is a PDA for field workers who need an ultra-lightweight and full-featured mobile work tool.

Handheld Group, the global supplier of rugged computers, introduced the Nautiz X3, Handheld’s smallest and lightest rugged handheld PDA yet. Combining size, mobility and performance, the Nautiz X3 marks the latest step in making PDAs effective mobile work tools for any environment.

Designed to offer full performance in a mobile package, the Nautiz X3 measures only 150x67x25 mm and weighs less than 260 grams, but carries an IP65 rating and passes full MIL-STD-810G testing.

The Nautiz X3 is equipped with a powerful 806 MHz X-Scale processor, operates Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and has a range of performance features including 3G cellular, a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, WLAN, and Bluetooth. It also has a standard 1D laser scanner, with an optional 2D imager.

The Nautiz X3 is equipped with 256 MB of RAM for advanced applications, and 512 MB Flash memory for storage. It has a powerful 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery that will power the computer through a full work day. The 2.8 inch (320x240) QVGA touchscreen is optimized for outdoor applications.

The Nautiz X3 can withstand drops from 1.8 meters and it operates in extreme temperatures ranging from -20°C to 60°C. It has been tailor-made for usage in the field with built-in GPS, altimeter, G-sensor and compass.

“The Nautiz X3 is a true breakthrough – it’s a unique product in today’s market. We’re offering a handheld PDA that’s smaller and lighter than most similar computing tools – and yet it still meets IP65 and MIL-STD810G standards. It has fast voice and data performance – plus all the performance features you’d expect from a rugged PDA which makes it go beyond a smartphone. It has a combination of size, performance, ruggedness and value that the market hasn’t seen before,” said Jerker Hellström, CEO and Chairman of the Handheld Group.

The Nautiz X3 is the latest rugged PDA in the Nautiz product line, which consists of the Nautiz X5, Nautiz eTicket, Nautiz eTicket Pro and Nautiz X7. Nautiz X3 is available for order immediately and will begin shipping in December. It can be seen at worldwide trade shows starting this week.
