Itronix Duo-Touch

We feel just the slightest bit sorry for you if have the kind of job where you need a Tablet PC that'll operate in sub-freezing temperatures, but Itronix just announced the Duo-Touch, a new ruggedized Tablet PC designed for use in extremely cold environments. The Duo-Touch meets military-grade specs for ruggedness, and has a die-cast magnesium casing, an 8.4-inch LCD screen that can flip between active digitizer and passive touch screen modes, a 1.1GHz Pentium M processor, integrated GPS, 1280MB of RAM, a 128MB video card, support for both 802.11g WiFi and cellular data (UMTS, GPRS/EDGE, or EV-DO) add-on modules, and a hard drive heater to ensure that this thing boots up when it's below zero.
