Softeq launches the Durateq 3100 ruggedised Pocket PC
Softeq Development Ltd. is introducing a rugged handheld computer, the Durateq 3100, on HP iPAQ Pocket PC technology. The company uses some advanced materials that make this device durable without the bulk, weight, and awkwardness of other rugged handhelds.

The small and light design makes the device easy to carry, clean and maintain, making it a good fit for retail and commercial applications such as guest services, restaurant POS, hospitality, field operations and maintenance.

The Durateq 3100 runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, which comes with Pocket PC versions of Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and Internet Explorer. The standard CPU is a 300MHz Samsung S3C 2440, with the option for a 400MHz version. The device comes with 56MB user available memory (includes 4MB of iPAQ File Store), and an option for a model with 152MB user available memory.

The 3.5" (89 mm) TFT color LCD can display 65K colours, and work in both portrait and landscape modes. 

"Initially, we developed the Durateq for a lead customer with demanding handheld requirements. Commercial handhelds were too fragile while rugged, military-spec handhelds were too bulky and too expensive," says Chris Howard, President of Softeq Development. "With the Durateq, we've combined the best features of both products: compatibility and durability in a small form factor."

The handheld has built-in 802.11 Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth. It has extended battery life for day long performance, and a rugged 6-pin docking connector for charging. Secured SD and CF card slots prevent tampering. The SD interface is compatible with SDIO.

The overall design features a ruggedized, high-impact sealed casing with rubber overmold, and shock, dust and splash resistant construction.

Among the various accessories available are a magnetic stripe reader, a bar code scanner, and a GPS module. An optional multi-unit charger can support up to five handheld units at once.

The base model of the Durateq 3100 lists for US$899. It will be available in September from both HP and Softeq.
