The Triton is a Korean made (Cyberbank) CDMA 1xRTT compatible ruggedized Pocket PC and I am told this is the first English transalation of this device... Being a ruggedized device, the primary target market is field force automation. The Triton is water and dust resistant and its body stands drops of up to 1.4m into a concrete floor (no, I have not tested this). There are four rubber pads around the case and all connectors are protected with rubber covers, making it ideal for workers who need to take their handheld devices outdoors."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/ekkie_100_2975.jpg" /><br /><br />Wow! 8O That thing is HUGE (even for a ruggedized device)! In its defense, it supports a ton of connectivity options including USB, mini-USB, and PC Card (Type I) connectors. It's a CDMA device (as opposed to GSM), so this is not a global solution as far as I can tell and the OS is Windows Mobile 2003 SE (as opposed to Pocket PC Phone Edition). Anyway, if you're into rugged devices, give this a look-over and let us know what you think.

On the subject of ruggedised devices, I'm interested in Terralogic's Toughnote Pda

Has anyone come across this device? Any thoughts or opinions?[/img]

Nope, this is actually small! It is longer than a standard Pocket PC like the PDA2k, but it's not much ticker. And it's smaller than some rugged devices. Check this one, the Allegro CX:

True. True. I guess I was comparing it to the latest devices I had seen from Symbol and even a niche-Olympus device which were getting close to being almost consumer-sized.
