The Mega Phone



I'm not one to post much about Microsoft enable devices, but this thing needs mention just because it has EVERYTHING included. It's a beast.

From Ziff-Davis' new Wireless Supersite:

The Intermec 760 Color Mobile Computer, a Pocket PC 2002 PDA, costs a whopping $3,650 (street). Then again, this rugged device comes fully loaded with a 2-D bar code scanner, Bluetooth for wireless personal area networking, 802.11b for LAN communications, and GSM/GPRS capability with T-Mobile service for WAN communications (CDMA/1xRTT support is coming shortly). A bare-bones version without the scanner and wireless connectivity costs $1,850. Rather than pay the princely single-unit prices, most buyers purchase in volume. For quantities of 1,000 or more, the unit price varies from $1,595 to $1,995, depending on options. For mobile data collection and reporting, the Intermec 760 Color Mobile Computer is a versatile PDA.

Weighing in at 1.3 pounds and measuring 7.5 by 3.5 by 2.0 inches (HWD), with the depth tapering to 1.3 inches at the bottom, the hefty 760 is built for demanding environments. A removable rubber-duck�style antenna adds 2 inches to the height. Intermec claims 6 to 10 hours of life for the lithium ion battery. A 400-MHz Intel PXA250 XScale processor drives the device, which also has 64MB RAM, 32MB of flash ROM, and a 64MB SD (Secure Digital) card. Internal slots hold the SD card and the SIM card containing your cellular account information.

1.3 POUNDS?!? Wow.
