Great news for you Android fans out there (and I know there’s a few of you) as now you can take your Android to the field, drop it, submerge it in water, toss it around, kick it or ?? Utah-based Juniper Systems has announce a partnership with Pennsylvania-based SDG Systems in order to bring to market the Mesa Rugged Notepad with Android (AOSP) 2.3 operating system. The result is a new, rugged handheld computer known as the RAMPAGE™ 6 and will be distributed exclusively through SDG Systems. You’ll get a chance to get your hands on this awesome device if you happen to be attending the ESRIUC this July in San Diego, otherwise, the RAMPAGE 6 will be shipping in Q3.
A few specs… The RAMPAGE 6 will feature the many advantages and benefits of the Mesa Rugged Notepad, including a large 5.7 inch viewing display, IP67 ingress protection rating for water and dust, integrated 2–5 meter GPS receiver, optional integration of a 1D/2D barcode scanner, and optional Class I, Division 2 certification for use in hazardous locations.
