ViewSonic Corp. has announced the V38r-06, V38r-07 and V38r-07a rugged handheld computers, designed and built to meet mobile computing demands across a variety of industries, including retail, public safety, healthcare and military.

Built on an older Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 operating system and Intel Xscale CPU, the handheld computers are compatible with existing IT infrastructures, and offer features such as Bluetooth and GPS tracking.

All these new devices meet the IP54 design standards for sealing against dust, moisture and extreme environmental conditions, while offering secure data exchange with 802.11b/g wireless communications and Cisco infrastructure compatibility.

The ViewSonic V38r models feature a 3.5-inch 240 x 320 (QVGA) LCD display and 520MHZ Intel Xscale processor, along with a hot-swappable, rechargeable Li-Ion battery that allows battery changes without shut down or loss of data.

A jog-dial and four launch buttons enable simple navigation through files and applications, and a built-in Secure Digital (SD) slot provides additional memory for storage and back-up operations.

The V38r-07/-07a (pictured) is the premier model in the V38r Series and is packed with 802.11b/g wireless, Bluetooth, bar code scanner, 1.3 megapixel camera, fingerprint sensor and GPS (Global Positioning System) support. The V38r-07a is Trade Agreement Act (TAA) compliant to support government sales.
