The GD2000 delivers a portable rugged mobile computing solution that can handle the hazards of field and medical work. The light weight and 5.6″ display make it small enough to carry in one hand and easy to slip into your cargo pocket or lab jacket when you need to move to the next job.


GD2000 UMPC Rugged Device

The GD2000 UMPC passes numerous rugged certifications


The small size of the GD2000 might make you question its power, but the 1.2GHz Intel ULV processor, 2GB of RAM and SSD internals team up to deliver a device capable of running Windows 7 enterprise applications anywhere you want to. The 5.6″ display can be read in daylight and includes an integrated touchscreen for control and navigation. Tablet lovers will lament the fact that this is not a convertible device.

On top of the touchscreen you control the GD2000 with a full size keyboard, joystick, touchpad, mouse buttons and d-pad. You won’t want to type out a full report on this portable device, but it will serve your needs for note taking and access to enterprise applications in hazardous environments.

    Thank you, GBM!  I no longer read here regularly because I’m not interested in tablet, slates, cellphones, and most of whatever else it is you now cover, but this device is interesting — mostly because once the next Intel feature shrink comes at around the end of the year, and we get some of the newer low-powered daylight screens that will alo run video, a lot of the features of this device would be excellent in a coat-pocket computer with a real keyboard, which, especially if it has cellphone integration features and a dock for a bluetooth headset, will be worth carrying and spending time to set up.  More of the similar, please!
