Getac has announced that its B300 rugged notebook computer and V100 rugged convertible are now compatable with the Verizon wireless network and will incorporate the company's 3G wireless network for expanded wireless coverage.

"Access to Verizon's 3G wireless network has made two of the best rugged notebook solutions for field use even better," said Jim Rimay, Getac's president. "This will provide our customers with greater options for their wireless needs and increase productivity by ensuring they can stay connected, which is absolutely critical for our customers."

The certification is beneficial to Getac customers in the public safety, utilities, construction, and military professions who often work in remote areas where coverage is weak, according to the company.

The 3G-equipped notebooks provide fast and convenient built-in mobile broadband access over wireless cellular networks, eliminating the need to carry external data cards or search for Wi-Fi hotspots.

"Getac's products provide mobile users with tools to improve productivity when away from the office," said Anthony A. Lewis, Verizon Wireless' vice president of open development. "As businesses have the need to stay connected no matter where work happens, they can be confident that these devices combined with the Verizon wireless network will help them do just that."
