The redesigned chassis has water, dirt and dust-resistant sealed ports and multimedia drive bay. The CF-28 is resistant to water spray from the top, bottom and all sides at any spray angle and might even manage a spilled coffee! The case hinges have been redesigned to resist loosening even after thousands of hours of demanding field work.
The GPS-ready CF-28 features an optional integrated internal antenna system for maximum mobility, ease-of-operation and user productivity in geographical data collection and mapping applications, such as crime-scene documentation. The CF-28 also offers wireless LAN connectivity and the compact H.O.T.™ (High-gain, Omni-directional Telescopic) antenna rounds out the wireless package, letting a user be in constant contact with a base station or other wireless communications services available.
