Husky FS4 Handheld Debuts Featuring 206MHz Processor

Handheld Systems, a leading supplier of environmentally rugged, handheld computers, continues to lead the way by now offering the fastest rugged handheld computer powered by Microsoft Windows® CE: the Husky FS4.

The new Husky FS4, developed in cooperation with At Work Computers, incorporates the latest in mobile computing technology. The unit includes an Intel StrongARM 206 MHz processor, Windows CE 3.0 operating system, and a case sealed to IP67 specifications, making it impervious to water immersion, shock, and vibration.

"With Windows CE becoming the standard in vertical enterprise applications, I foresee tremendous potential for a rugged handheld with the powerful processing capability and long battery life of the FS4," said Marco Landi, Itronix/Husky General Manager for Handheld Products. "The specifications of the Husky FS4, its rugged design, and its aggressive pricing should open many opportunities in applications such as surveying, parking management, asset management, forestry, and agriculture."

The Husky's "hourglass" form factor and over-molded soft polyurethane exterior makes it easy to hold and operate, and offers exceptional environmental protection. It can withstand repeated four-foot drops, and offers up to 40 hours of continuous use on its 4-cell NiMH battery pack.
