Logic Instrument has just launched their rugged FieldBook. The Windows handheld device sports a 7-inch “sunlight readable” WVGA display with a resistive glovetouch screen, that means no sausage wieners necessary. You can drop it from 4′, bring it to extreme climates of -20C to +50C, rain won’t stop it, nor dust-storms. It’s not exactly the handheld you would buy for watching movies and surfing the web, unless you were out roaming the Adirondacks in December. It would be more in line with maintenance and communication crews such as military, logistics and emergency services.
