Rugged Handhelds

Rugged Handhelds

Overview
A rugged handheld computer is a compact-sized computing device that is small enough to hold with one hand, and is durable enough for use outdoors and in other tough mobile computing environments. Rugged handheld computers typically have a display screen with stylus and/or touch input and a compact keyboard or numeric keypad. Rugged handhelds are different from rugged laptops and tablet PCs in that they run a scaled down version of the Windows® operating system (Windows Mobile) vs. a full-blown version of Windows.
