Itronix has cooked up a couple of ruggedized devices with its new DynaVue display, and while both are targeted at government customers, they'll be available to consumers through CDW and possibly others. The first of these devices is the GoBook VR-2 notebook, which features Intel's Santa Rosa mobile platform with a Core 2 Duo T7300 processor, up to 4GB of memory, and a 13.3" display with a 1024x768 resolution. 802.11a/g/n wireless and Bluetooth are also under the hood alongside support for EVDO and GPS. As one might expect from a ruggedized notebook, the VR-2 meets numerous standards for vibration, heat, and humidity tolerance. The keyboard is also capable of withstanding a 400ml liquid spill that sits for a full ten minutes without clean-up.
Joining the VR-2 notebook is a smaller GoBook MR-1. The clamshell MR-1 measures just 1.5" x 6" x 4.3" and weighs less than 2lbs. Itronix calls it an "ultra mobile rugged notebook," and equips the system with an Intel Core Solo U1400 processor, up to 1GB of memory, and a 5.6" screen with a display resolution of 1024x600. GPS is optional for the MR-1, whose capabilities can be expanded via a 100-pin connector to include support for PCMCIA compatibility, docking, fingerprint scanning, and other extras.
