The Algiz 13 is a convertible notebook computer which means that users can use it like a tablet or flip the screen for a more typical laptop configuration.
It employs magnesium casing for extra protection, and it meets IP54 and MIL-STD-810F military standards for accidental drops, dust and water. It also operates in temperatures ranging from -20 to 50 C.
The Algiz 13 features a powerful 1.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Merom ULV processor and up to 4 GB of DDR II 667 industrial-grade RAM. The Algiz 13 includes a shock-mounted 120 GB (up to 160 GB optional) 2.5-inch hard drive with G-Sensor Protection, and it runs either the Windows XP Tablet PC edition or Windows Vista Business operating system.
Users can choose from a host of communication options when theyre out in the field, given the Algiz 13s multiple integrated wireless capabilities. It offers up to four simultaneous radios modems, WLAN 802.11 a/b/g, Bluetooth and optional WAN/GPRS, and a fully integrated GPS receiver providing highly reliable connectivity across the range of wireless networks. Designed for expansive radio frequency coverage, it features internal antennas, and the magnesium case provides RF shielding and extensive RF noise filtering.
The Algiz 13 has a full keyboard that is dust- and water-protected. The 13.3" XGA (1280x800) TFT display is readable even in sunlight. It comes with built-in resistive touch screen capability and an onscreen QWERTY soft keypad. The 7800 mAh Li-ion battery runs up to six hours.
The new Algiz 13 allows us to expand into the category of rugged notebooks, which will give our customers yet another great option to choose from to get their work done says Thomas Lfblad, Director of Handheld Europe. As we aim to provide our resellers with the most complete line of rugged computers possible, we are very exited about launching the Algiz 13.
The Algiz 13 is available for ordering immediately. The first customer shipment is expected by late August.
