Getac recently announced the new PS535F PDA. The PS535F features an autofocus 3 megapixel camera, altimeter, and E-compass. This PDA is designed for field-based workers who need to capture field data on site and transmit it back to headquarters in real time.
Data and photos are viewable on a 3.5-inch VGA resolution touchscreen display with sunlight readable technology. In addition to built-in GPS, the PS535F uses a built-in altimeter and E-compass to pinpoint the userís latitude, longitude, and altitude. This PDA can also provide the directional relationship between a targeted subject and the userís position.
For connectivity, the PS535F features integrated Bluetooth V2.0 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. Users can connect the PS535F to a GIS server to transmit data or they can use a Getac Bluetooth modem or a mobile phone for transmission.
The PS535F runs on Window Mobile 6.1. It offers eight hours of battery power and has been tested to withstand rigorous every day use in harsh environments. To that end, the Getac PS535F is compliant with MIL-STD 810F and IP54 with safeguards against frequent drops and exposure to water, dust, and extreme temperatures.
