IRVINE, Calif., 3 May 2010. Getac, maker of rugged computers for field-based applications, announced that its B300 rugged notebook computer and V100 rugged convertible are Verizon Wireless Network Ready and will incorporate the company's 3G wireless network for expanded wireless coverage. The certification is particularly beneficial for Getac customers in the public safety and military professions who often work in remote areas where coverage is weak.
3G-equipped notebooks provide fast and convenient built-in mobile broadband access over wireless cellular networks, eliminating the need to carry external data cards or search for Wi-Fi hotspots.
"Access to Verizon's 3G wireless network has made two of the best rugged notebook solutions for field use even better," explains Jim Rimay, president, Getac. "This will provide our customers with greater options for their wireless needs and increase productivity by ensuring they can stay connected, which is absolutely critical for our customers."
Getac B300 is designed to offer durability, dependability, and advanced performance technology in a rugged notebook. The B300 offers Getac's exclusive QuadraClear Technology with touchscreen, which uses special anti-reflective coatings, linear and circular polarizers, and a 1200-nit LED display for optimal viewability in direct sunlight. With its power management and advanced display technologies, the Getac B300 offers up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge, allowing extended use in remote areas where access to additional power may not be available
