Do you happen to work in environments that are less-than-ideal when it comes to sensitive computing equipment? Data Ltd. has the perfect fodder in the form of the Intel Atom-powered DLI 8400 UMPC. This model is rugged enough to shrug off multiple four-foot drops onto concrete without any negative effect to it as well as the data stored within. You can choose from either a hard drive or a SSD within, but we’d rather go for the latter to further increase the safety of our data, especially when it comes to accidental drops. Other features include 9-hour operation courtesy of two hot-swappable batteries, IP54 compliant, up to 2GB RAM, a 1,024 x 600 resolution LED-backlit display, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.
You will be able to remain connected at all times thanks to the integrated cellular modem that plays nice with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon networks. Not only that, you won’t be able to get lost since the DLI 8400 also boasts a GPS receiver to help you move around. Powered by a choice of Windows operating systems (Windows XP Embedded, Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Business) or Linux 2.6 (Debian/Gnome), you can pick up the Data DLI 8400 sometime later this second quarter from $1,800 upwards.
