The Swedish Handheld Group has announced the launch of the Nautiz X4, a multipurpose handheld device that is designed with durability in mind.

The Nautiz X4 is particularly suited to warehousing and logistics applications, thanks to its built in barcode scanner and protective exterior shell. The X4 has an IP65 Ingress Protection rating, which is an international standard that defines how well protected a device is against dust and water. At an IP65 level, the X4 is said to be totally protected against dust, and moderately protected against water.

"Mobile data collection is performed in warehouses as well as outdoors, in all kinds of weather and for long work hours. It may be cold and it may rain or snow. So the field worker needs a computing tool that can not only handle adverse weather conditions, but is also ergonomic and user-friendly," Handheld Group CEO Jerker Hellström says.

The X4 has both a touch screen and a keyboard, and contains most features that one might expect, including a GPS, 3G and Wi-Fi capability. The X4 is powered by a 1GHz processor with 512 MB of RAM, and is fully compatible with Microsoft Office thanks to the Windows Handheld operating system that it uses.
