"Our partners have come to expect cutting-edge technology from Handheld," said Dale Kyle, president of Handheld US. "The Algiz 7, which is available exclusively from Handheld, meets the combination requested so often - a rugged device with a larger screen than a handheld, but without the bulk of the larger tablets. Offering it at a compelling price makes it all the more attainable. The Algiz 7 hits that sweet spot and will undoubtedly be just what many of our customers have needed."

The Algiz 7 comes standard with Bluetooth, WLAN and GPS as well as a built-in 2-megapixel camera with LED light. Optional 3G cellular capabilities provide high-speed GSM/UMTS/EVDO data transmission. The Algiz 7 is ready for Gobi(TM) 2000 technology and has built in antennas, which means that you'll be able to work on your choice of wireless frequency anywhere in the world.

"Not all our customers will be familiar with the benefits of Gobi 2000, continued Kyle. "It will support both GSM and CDMA. This is truly a technology that allows our users to go anywhere in the world and use Algiz 7 with high speed data networks."

Handheld's unique MaxView(TM) screen technology is the latest in outdoor view ability ensuring the user the best outdoor screen visibility available on the market. The hot-swappable 2400 mAh dual battery pack lets you change batteries without shutting down thus giving you the run time needed from your tablet.

The Algiz 7 is rated IP65 and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for withstanding humidity, vibration, drops and extreme temperatures. Weighing in at a mere 2.4 lbs, this compact tablet is one of the lightest 7" tablets on the market.

The Algiz 7 will be shown at trade shows all over the world in the coming months and orders can be placed immediately. First customer shipping will begin in March.
