Itronix Intros Faster Pentium-Based Tablet PC

The Duo-Touch Tablet PC is based on the Intel Pentium M processor 733 and the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset, making it faster than Itronix's original GoBook Tablet PC.

Itronix Corp. on Tuesday rolled out its new wireless tablet PC, designed especially for the mobile workforce in industries such as telecommunications, utilities, government, and insurance.

The Duo-Touch Tablet PC is based on the Intel Pentium M processor 733 and the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset, making if faster than Itronix's original GoBook Tablet PC.

The Tablet PC has both a passive touch screen and a standard digitizer touch screen, and it includes a global-positioning system receiver that makes it possible, for example, for a manager to quickly locate a tablet-toting worker out in the field. It's built with a more-rugged case and has a heated hard drive to withstand cold weather.

Itronix has designed its Tablet PC to support up to three types of networks: wireless LANs, Bluetooth, and wireless WANs. The vendor plans to add Evolution-Data Optimized, or EV-DO, capabilities to the Tablet PC sometime in July. EV-DO is the third generation of high-speed data enhancements to the Code Division Multiple Access cellular technology and is a preferred alternative to Wi-Fi for some on-the-go workers and their employers.

Users can more easily upgrade to new wireless technologies because the Duo-Touch Tablet PC was built with the Common Radio Module Architecture. Itronix's suite of products, including the new Tablet PC, the GoBook II, and the GoBook III, work on networks provided by most large, national carriers, according to Itronix.

The Duo-Touch Tablet PC is priced at $3,195 and will be available for delivery this June.
