GETAC's rugged PS535F sacrifices beauty for brawn

Darren Murph

Make no mistake -- GETAC's PS535F ain't winning any beauty contests, but it just might survive an unplanned night out in the rain forest. The smartphone, which landed in the FCC late last year, has just popped official on the outfit's website. For reasons unknown, the unit comes bundled with Windows Mobile 5.0, though the shell is compliant with MIL-STD 810F / IP54 standards, which means you can drop, kick and sprinkle it with liquid without worrying over its demise. There's also a 400MHz Samsung CPU, 64MB of SDRAM, 2GB of NAND Flash, a 3.5-inch QVGA touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi, USB connectivity, an SD card slot and a Li-ion good for eight hours of usage at "room temperature." No telling how costly this pup will be, but those who can't stand forking out cash each month for a new lightweight handset will probably not mind the premium.
