Panasonic Solutions Co., provider of collaboration, information-sharing and decision-support solutions for government and commercial enterprises, today announced the newest member of its Toughbook U1 ultra-mobile PC product family, the Toughbook U1 Ultra.
Toughbook U1 products are fully rugged portable devices that run a full Windows OS, the durability needed for enterprise applications and a suite of available integrated features. The new Toughbook U1 Ultra is equipped with a TransflectivePlus display for up to 6000 nit viewability in direct sunlight, 64GB solid state hard drive, 2GB of memory, an Intel Atom Processor (Z530 1.6Ghz), and Windows 7. The device is suited for highly mobile jobs such as eCitations.
The Toughbook U1 family of handheld computers has also undergone a number of usability and navigation enhancements, including enlarged screen icons, programmable "right click" onscreen button, a larger soft keyboard, a "zoom and pan" mode-allowing users to simply navigate robust content and a soft "Ctrl-Alt-Del" button for log-on access.
The optional 2 megapixel camera features updated software for faster auto-focus and improved white balancing. Agencies can also take advantage of the optional embedded features available for the Toughbook U1, including GPS, barcode readers, fingerprint reader, and mobile broadband.
Besides being able to run the latest Windows 7 software, the Toughbook U1 Ultra runs legacy mobile device applications, with solutions available to run Windows Mobile and Windows CE software in the Windows 7 environment. The solution, tWinrunner by Clearview Software International, allows agencies to maximize their legacy handheld device software investment while creating a migration path to a full Windows OS device.
The Toughbook U1 line up is certified by an independent third-party test lab to meet MIL-STD-810G and IP65 standards for environmental conditions. The device can withstand a drop of 6 feet from any angle, and its fanless design keeps out water and dust while reducing weight and eliminating a common point of failure.
The Toughbook U1 family features a variety of embedded wireless technologies, including Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and optional Gobi2000 mobile broadband technology from Qualcomm. The Toughbook U1 will be certified on the Verizon Wireless, Sprint and AT&T Wireless networks, allowing officers to stay connected at all times.
