Handheld has started shipping the Android version of its Nautiz X8 handheld. According to the company, the fully rugged device, with its compact design and large touchscreen, has received an overwhelmingly positive response from reviewers and customers alike. Handheld adds that it is sure its Android customers will like it just as much as its Windows users do.
A front-runner in the new generation of handheld computers, Handheld comments that the ergonomic Nautiz X8 delivers the largest, most brilliant capacitive touchscreen in its class, along with a combination of processing power, connectivity and field ruggedness.
The handheld features a high-speed Texas Instruments 4470 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of iNAND Flash and a 5200 mAh Li-ion battery that lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge. A choice of operating systems — Android 4.2.2 or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5.3 — allows you to choose the most suitable platform for your needs.
Each detail of the Nautiz X8 is meticulously designed for field use, without sacrificing style or ergonomics. Its 4.7-inch high-brightness screen is the largest you'll find on any comparable computer, and you can operate the state-of-the-art capacitive touchscreen using light touch and multi-finger gestures — the same way you use your personal smart devices. The Nautiz X8's ruggedness is unparalleled. It's IP67-rated and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G U.S. military standards, which means it's impervious to both dust and water and can survive repeated drops, strong vibrations and operating temperatures ranging from -30 C to 60 C (-22 F to 140 F) — all in a sleek, attractive 490 gram (17.3 ounces) package.
The Nautiz X8 offers a combination of connectivity options and standard features, including a dedicated u-blox GPS receiver, BT 2.0 and 802.11b/g/n WLAN functionality. A built-in 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash lets you capture visual data quickly and easily, and connectivity through GSM/UMTS or CDMA phone data transmission keeps you connected wherever you go. Measure acceleration and orientation with the built-in G-sensor/accelerometer and gyroscope, or navigate with the integrated compass and altimeter. This handheld also features an open architecture and an extension cap system that lets you connect additional hardware such as sensors, radios and other add-ons.
The feature-rich Nautiz X8 comes ready for your team with application possibilities in forestry, public safety, field service and GIS/surveying, and it's adaptable to your work environment and performance requirements.
