The Nautiz X4 is a compact and lightweight rugged handheld computer that is optimized for efficient field data collection. It has been designed and developed specifically for mobile workers in tough environments in industries such as warehousing, logistics, transportation, utility, field service, security and public safety.

Measuring only 156 x 74 x 25.5 millimeters (6.1 x 2.9 x 1.0 inches) and weighing a mere 330 grams (11.6 ounces), the Nautiz X4 is a true ergonomic work tool and one of the thinnest and lightest handheld computers in the rugged-device sector. It features a high-brightness, sunlight-readable resistive touchscreen for reliable computing in challenging worksite environments, and comes complete with either a high-performance 1D laser scanner or a 2D imager for super-fast and accurate scanning and barcoding tasks. The device also features a 5MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash.

The Nautiz X4 has an IP65 Ingress Protection rating, which means that it is impervious to dust and highly resistant to water - the unit can be used in dusty work environments as well as in heavy rain, and can be rinsed off if dirty. It also meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military test standards for overall durability and resistance to humidity, shock, vibration, drops, salt and extreme temperatures.

"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," said Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. "For this, we are proud to introduce the Nautiz X4, a new rugged handheld computer that merges ultimate mobility with true field functionality in a handy package and at a very attractive price. We are confident that the Nautiz X4 will be the obvious choice for mobile workers in a wide range of industries."

The Nautiz X4 rugged handheld computer has an integrated u-blox GPS receiver that provides professional-grade navigation functionality. This handheld also offers multiple connectivity options, such as high-powered 3G and excellent Wi-Fi capability. It has a high-speed 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of flash memory, and it runs Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5, the operating system of choice for professional users in the targeted industries, which includes Microsoft Office Mobile.

Nautiz eTicket Pro II for secure transactions and ticket validations

Handheld is also launching a brand-new e-ticketing device, the Nautiz eTicket Pro II, which is built on the same platform as the Nautiz X4. The Nautiz eTicket Pro II is an efficient tool for electronic fare collection and ticket validation, specifically developed for professionals in the public transportation sector. It carries the same specifications and functionality as the Nautiz X4, but adds a built-in advanced contactless smart-card reader from Arcontia for secure transactions and ticket validations. Over the years, Handheld has provided e-ticketing products for public transport authorities in Melbourne, Prague and Helsinki, and for the national railways in Sweden and the Netherlands.

The Nautiz X4 rugged PDA and the Nautiz eTicket Pro II will be unveiled and showcased at the annual IT-TRANS conference in Karlsruhe, Germany on February 18-20. The media is welcome to contact Handheld for interviews and demonstrations. Orders for the new products can be placed immediately, for delivery at the end of March.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure.
