Need a rugged portable computer to use out in the field? Rye field that is. Catcher Inc. has got the handheld for you. Their new Catcher (catchy name, huh?) is a ruggedized device meeting military specifications that runs on Windows XP with Pen Computing extensions. Rugged good looks are not the only thing this 2 pound unit brings to the table, I mean camp. How about WiFi, Bluetooth, CDMA or GSM, outdoor screen, 4 hours on a single battery (8 hours with 2), digital voice recorder, dual VGA cameras, real-time video at 30 fps, video conferencing, fingerprint reader, GPS location, and the grandaddy of all features- iris scanner. Yep, the true geeks security feature. :)
The Catcher can be outfit with a number of accessories like a dock and a vehicle install kit. You’ll have to contact the manufacturer for pricing because if I tell you I’ll have to kill you.
