Handheld launches the NAUTIZ X9 An ultra-rugged enterprise Android PDA

Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, today announced the new NAUTIZ X9: an ultra-rugged enterprise handheld built for fieldwork in the most challenging outdoor or industrial environments.

The new Nautiz X9 Android handheld is targeted for industrial and field applications where reliability is critical and ruggedness is key. Offering a complete and unique set of features, the fully rugged Nautiz X9 can be used as a mobile computer, data collector or field controller.

The fully rugged Nautiz X9 offers:

  • A quad-core processor and easy-to-use Android 7 (Nougat) OS.
  • GPS/GLONASS capabilities standard.
  • Optional high-quality, high-speed 2D imager.
  • Dual cameras including 13-megapixel rear-facing with autofocus and flash, and 2-megapixel front-facing.
  • 4G/LTE Android phone functionality.
  • Google GMS for Google Maps navigation and Play Store app access.
  • A sunlight-readable 5-inch capacitive display with multi-touch sensitivity.
  • IP67 ruggedness rating for waterproof, dust-tight performance.

The Nautiz X9 is designed for use in the most challenging outdoor and industrial environments. This rugged PDA is MIL-STD 810G tested for drops, vibrations, humidity, extreme temperatures and varying altitudes. Handheld’s newest device has a fast 1.3 GHz processor with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB Flash. And the 4800 mAh battery will run for a full shift, even with heavy use.

“Adding the Nautiz X9 to our family of products reflects our commitment to bringing truly rugged field devices to market,” says Johan Hed, Handheld Group director of product management. “The Nautiz X9 also extends our wide Android offerings, which have been in increasingly high demand. GMS certification is an extra feature not always included in enterprise devices, but it has proved to be invaluable for our customers, giving them access to the full suite of Google applications. The reliability and toughness of the Nautiz X9 will bring great value to field users worldwide.”

Feature-loaded for superior performance

The Nautiz X9 is a feature-full rugged handheld with plenty of computing power, a scanner, camera, 4G/LTE phone and NFC, plus all the capabilities that come with the Google GMS license, such as access to Play Store and Google Maps.

This rugged data collector is powered by a quad-core processor and runs Android 7.0 (Nougat). It has plenty of RAM and storage to handle a wide range of field tasks, and it features a sunlight-readable 5-inch capacitive display with multi-touch sensitivity and specially hardened glass.

Dual cameras, GPS and 2D imaging for robust data collection

The Nautiz X9 comes standard with multiple data collection features, including GPS/GLONASS, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Users can also add a 2D imager for even more versatility.

Ruggedness for every tough environment

The Nautiz X9 is designed for challenging outdoor and industrial environments. An IP67 rating means it’s fully waterproof and completely sealed against dust, and it’s also tested against MIL-STD-810G standards for surviving drops, vibrations, humidity, extreme temperatures and altitudes. That means you’ll never have to worry about interrupting your work or losing important data.

Field connectivity and versatility

The ultra-rugged Nautiz X9 features 2G/3G/LTE WAN, dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless LAN, low-energy 4.1 BT and NFC — in short, everything you could require for heavy-duty fieldwork. Accessories such as the pistol grip, vehicle dock and desktop charger help outfit your handheld for an efficient day in the field.

Tough, tougher, toughest

This feature-rich PDA is as tough as they come. Targeted for demanding field applications in forestry, public safety, field service and GIS/surveying, the Nautiz X9 continues Handheld’s tradition of delivering unyielding ruggedness and maximum performance without compromise.
