The Houston City Council has approved a contract with PCS Mobile to outfit the city's 1,800 police cruisers with Getac B300 rugged notebook computers along with in-vehicle docks and mounts, according to the company.

Delivery of the Getac B300 rugged notebooks will be in late May with installation beginning in June.

As the fourth largest city with the fifth largest police department in the U.S., Houston utilized technical advisers at the Houston Police Department to evaluate several vendor solutions for quality, performance, price, and technical features that matched the need of officers to access information and remote databases from the convenience and safety of their police cars. Their decision to select PCS Mobile and Getac was based on the ability to provide customized features addressing the specific needs of the environment where the rugged notebooks will be used along with PCS Mobile’s capabilities to provide services for and manage such a large project.

The Getac B300 rugged notebook computers will include a powerful 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 processor, sunlight readable 1400 NITs QuadraClear display, fast 4G LTE certified for the Verizon Wireless network, responsive 128GB Solid State Drive, lightweight magnesium alloy second generation B300 vehicle-docking station and a five-year warranty.

"Getac takes tremendous pride in providing rugged solutions to government and law enforcement agencies that have unique needs based on product applications and geographic environments," said Jim Rimay, president of Getac. "The Houston Police Department joins several other large police departments who rely on Getac rugged notebooks including Orlando, Florida and San Jose, California."
