Workabout HDS

Purchase Inquiry


When durability, ease-of-use and screen resolution are a must, the rugged new Workabout HDS becomes the essential work productivity tool. Unlike comparable rugged PDAs, the Workabout HDS delivers superior 480-by-640 screen resolution for unbelievably sharp images and clear text – from bright sunlight to low-light or no-light situations. The Workabout HDS even handles GIS mapping and other graphic-intense applications with ease.


Workabout HDS Display Comparison

Boosting data input speed and accuracy, the rugged PDA has a built-in mechanical keyboard, which gives users separate numeric, navigation and function keys. This distinctive feature is preferred for professional field use. In fact, a recent study reported keyboard data input on the Workabout HDS was 50 percent faster and more accurate than onscreen keyboards found on comparable rugged PDAs. Keyboard separation also provides far greater screen display area.

Handheld Systems has enhanced the compact and lightweight base Workabout to meet stringent waterproofing (IP67) and extreme operating temperature standards (-22F to 140F). This rugged PDA also withstands drops from as high as six feet above ground.
