Panasonic Releases Rugged Notebooks and Tablet PC with Built-in CDMA EVDO
Panasonic is making the Panasonic Toughbook rugged CF-18 and CF-29 notebook computers, and the semi-rugged CF-73 notebook computer available with built-in access to Sprint's EV-DO and CDMA 1X networks.

Panasonic first offered its notebooks with integrated and embedded EV-DO on the Sprint network, starting in August 2005. The company is enabling EV-DO connectivity through the embedded Sierra Wireless EM5625 OEM module.

The fully rugged and durable Panasonic Toughbook CF-18 and CF-29 are designed using MIL-STD-810F environmental testing procedures for drops, shocks, altitude, vibration, and dust, water and extreme temperature resistance. Both models are encased in magnesium alloy and feature a shock-mounted removable hard-drive in a stainless steel case. With a swivel, the Toughbook CF-18 transforms from a fully rugged maximum-performance notebook PC to a fully rugged Tablet PC.

The dual-band Sierra Wireless EM5625 embedded module provides a wireless platform that can be integrated into a wide variety of mobile devices. It offers voice, data, and messaging functionality at typical data speeds of 400-700 kbps, with bursts up to 2.4 Mbps. The EM5625 complies with new European Union directives on RoHS (Restrictions on Hazardous Substances).
