Go rugged with Viewsonic V38r-series Pocket PCs

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name “Viewsonic” is a reasonably-priced though perfectly capable LCD monitor (I think my local Costco has a deal on a 37-inch TV right now, if I’m not mistaken), but did you know that Viewsonic is also in the handheld computer game? Well, they’ve just announced a trio of new Pocket PCs — dubbed the V38r-06, V38r-07, and V38r-07a — all of which are built tough, able to withstand the roughness of life.

Powered by Intel XScale processors and Windows Mobile 2003, these Viewsonic handhelds feature things like 3.5-inch QVGA displays, jog dials, SD expansion slots, hot swappable lithium ion batteries, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and more. Best of all, they’re sealed against dust, moisture and “extreme environmental conditions.”

All this ruggedness doesn’t come cheap though. With prices starting at $1,599, you would atleast hope for something beautiful.
