It's actually pretty hard to find a super-rugged WinMo device that doesn't have an integrated barcode scanner, weird keypad, or some other feature that takes it solidly out of the consumer market, so when we saw this, the five-year-old kid in us definitely took notice. QiGi's AK007 was apparently designed with public service in mind, targeted at cops who need a smartphone that can take a licking and keep on ticking -- and by all appearances, it'll do just that. You've got a 624MHz core (probably sourced from Marvell, if we were the betting type), Windows Mobile 6.1, 256MB of ROM, 128MB of RAM, GPS, a 2 megapixel camera, your choice of CDMA or GSM / EDGE radios, and the usual QVGA display; apparently "rugged" doesn't mean "high end," eh?
