Ruggedized handheld: the GMS P630 Spartan


P630There’s actually nothing "spartan" about the GMS P630, a new handheld computer specifically for the military, and perhaps millionaires that like to act out James Bond movies. For only $3,400, you too can be 007 or General Patton by using the preliminary device that sports:

– Up to 1.2GHz+ Intel Pentium®-M processor with up to – 2MB of L2 Cache
– Ultra small footprint 6.5”x3.0”X0.5” not including Battery and Display
– Up to 2GB of 266MHz DDR SDRAM
– 64MB of RAM
– OpenGL® and Direct-X® support
– 802.11g Wireless Ethernet
– Touch-screen and LCD panel with backlight support
– 60 GB HDD and CompactFlash
– Line in/out Audio for Voice recognition
– Support for conduction or convection cooling

Of course, as you’re playing real-life "Call of Duty", you’ll need to know where you are, which is why an integrated GPS radio is available as well. Of interesting note: the product page indicates that the power requirements are as low as only 8W. Oh and no mention if you military types can play Sudoku on it.
