Do you work in a field where you need rugged equipment? Perhaps you’re a field engineer, a geologist, or maybe even a stuntman? Well, then the Getac PS535F is right up your alley. It’s a super-rugged PDA for use in tough environments.

It comes equipped with a GPS, 3.5″ VGA touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera, altimeter, electronic compass and Windows Mobile 6.1. There’s no modem, annoyingly, but it does have Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. There’s 2GB of onboard memory.

The device weighs 300g, has battery for 8 hours and in keeping with its rugged design, it’s resistant to drops, water, dust and extreme temperatures. I’ve got an email in to Getac asking how much it’ll cost and when it’ll be available, so I’ll update this post when I know more.
