Sweden-based Handheld says the Nautiz X8 is built "to enable efficient and reliable data collection in the toughest of environments".

How tough? The X8 has an IP67 ingress protection rating and is completely protected against dust, sand and water immersion. It also meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military test standards for overall durability and resistance to humidity, shock, vibrations, drops, salt and extreme temperatures.

Features include a 4.7-inch screen that is easy to see in bright light, a Texas Instruments 4470 dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, the choice of Android or Windows Embedded Handheld operating systems and a 5200 mAh Li-ion battery that lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge.

The first of the expansion packs adds long-range Bluetooth communication (LRBT) of up to 300m. This, handheld says, is especially well-suited for advanced forestry solutions, surveying and construction work.

The Barcode Expansion Pack features an imager module (Zebra SE4750SR) with an LED aimer for barcode scanning. "This option is ideal for workers in field service, warehouse projects and logistics," Handheld says.

Finally, the Basic Expansion Pack is an empty add-on cap for custom accessories of your choice.

"The Nautiz X8 is the world's best rugged handheld computer, with an outstanding screen and exceptional durability, connectivity, processing power and battery life - without compromising ergonomics or design," Handheld Group CEO Jerker Hellström says.

"These new expansions will make it even more versatile, customizable and attractive for field users in a number of industry segments. We take pride in always working with our partners and customers to understand their specific needs and create solutions they actually want and will benefit from."
