Panasonic Computer Solutions Co. announces the availability of the Panasonic Toughbook CF-U1, a mobile PC that integrates the new low-power Intel Atom processor into a rugged handheld computer for use in the field.
With the Toughbook CF-U1, remote workers are able to connect to critical information and applications in real time, thus improving organizational efficiency, increasing information accuracy, and enabling field-based decision making. The CF-U1 reinvents handheld computing by providing users with features that previously were only available on a full-size Toughbook PC.
This portable and durable device features an LCD touch screen, solid-state drive, and an optional fingerprint scanner for user authentication. Data capture is enabled using one-dimensional and two-dimensional bar-code and RFID readers and a 2-megapixel digital camera. The Toughbook CF-U1 offers full-shift battery life, a sunlight viewable screen, and seamless connectivity with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G-mobilebroadband Internet connectivity.
The unit's Intel Atom processors pack 47 million transistors on a single chip smaller than a U.S. dime, making the Atom Intel's smallest and lowest power-consuming processor. The Toughbook CF-U1 operates on the full-function Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems, giving users access to feature-rich software applications in the field.
The CF-U1 features a thumb-friendly and always-accessible backlit QWERTY keyboard that makes data input fast and easy. State-of-the-art Panasonic LCD technology enables sunlight viewability with low-power, white LED backlighting. Its fanless, all-weather design reduces noise, weight, and points of failure. Its twin, long-lasting, hot-swappable batteries enable battery replacement without disrupting operation. And its magnesium alloy chassis delivers protection from bumps and drops of up to four feet.
