GoBook II built for government

Itronix Corp. announced today the latest addition to its line of ruggedized notebooks, the GoBook II.

Two major new features make this notebook especially attractive for government buyers:

* The removable hard drive, which enhances security by allowing sensitive data to stay with trusted users, even if the notebook is used by several people.

* A unique set of wireless capabilities.

The GoBook II supports three types of connectivity simultaneously: 802.11b, Bluetooth and wireless wide-area networking standards such as CDPD (Cellular Digital Packet Data) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). According to Itronix, the notebook can seamlessly switch from one type of network to another without interruption in service. In fact, the process is transparent to the user.

In addition, Itronix's common radio model architecture (CRMA) allows users to upgrade to new wireless technologies as they become available.

The GoBook II weighs 7.9 pounds and exceeds Military Specification 810F ruggedization standards and is built to withstand hazards such as rain, snow, wind, dust, fire, shock, vibration and chemical exposure. Its die-cast magnesium case houses a 12.1-inch color display suitable for outdoor viewing and a keyboard that glows in the dark.

The notebook comes with a 1.7 GHz Intel Corp. Mobile Pentium IV processor, up to 1,024M of memory and a 20G or 30G shock-mounted removable hard drive.

The GoBook II is available directly from Itronix for an retail price of $4,495 by calling (800) 441-1309 or e-mailing sales@itronix.com. You can also find information at www.itronix.com.
