The Nautiz X1 is now shipping to customers worldwide. Interest in
Handheld's ultra-rugged smartphone has been tremendous, and the first
batches are completely sold out.
The Nautiz X1 is part of the Nautiz product family of rugged and
ultra-rugged PDAs and smartphones. It has an IP67 ingress protection rating, which means it's fully dust- and waterproof and can withstand
immersion in water, and it also meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military test standards for enduring humidity, vibration, shock and
extreme high and low temperatures.
"As a company specializing in rugged computers, we know our customers
expect all our products to be built rugged from the inside out. The
Nautiz X1 is no exception - it comes with the reliability and
sturdiness of an ultra-rugged computer," says Product Manager Johan Hed
of Handheld Group. "People are increasingly using their smartphones all
the time, everywhere, and they're expecting mobility and connectivity
anytime, anywhere, and in all environments and weather conditions. The
Nautiz X1 ultra-rugged smartphone is a natural choice, as it's built to
survive these challenges."
"This is the toughest smartphone ever built," says Jerker Hellström, CEO
of Handheld Group. "We see a huge demand for truly rugged smartphones
among field professionals and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be
constantly connected. We're excited to see the great response this
product receives from the market."
The Nautiz X1 is slim and lightweight, weighing in at less than 180
grams (6.3 ounces). It has a 4-inch special sunlight-readable
capacitive touchscreen and ultra-durable Gorilla® Glass. It runs on a
powerful 1 GHz dual-core processor and has 1 GB of RAM. It features
Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a compass, a professional u-blox GPS, and a
5-megapixel camera. The Nautiz X1 comes with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream
Sandwich) or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system, and runs
on both GSM and CDMA networks. Multiple battery options enable a full
