[Lidköping, Sweden, March 4, 2020.] Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, today announced the new NAUTIZ X41, a rugged Android device built for mobile workers in logistics, warehousing, utilities, field service, public transportation, security and public safety. With its extreme ruggedness, 1D/2D scanner and a physical keypad, the Nautiz X41 enables efficient and reliable data collection in the toughest of work environments.

The multipurpose Nautiz X41 is a compact and light-weight rugged handheld designed for efficient field data collection and communication. Its IP65-rating means that it is watertight and fully dustproof.

“While many Android devices on the market do not come with a keypad, the Nautiz X41 offers 23 physical keys, including programmable function keys and a physical scan button for fast and efficient data entry,” says Johan Hed, Handheld Group director of product management. “And its choice of fast 1D scanner or 2D imager makes it a really reliable tool for all scan intensive applications.”

The ultra-rugged Nautiz X41 comes standard with:

  • A powerful 8-core processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage
  • Android 9.0 and Google GMS certification for full access all Google apps including Play Store and Google Maps.
  • Integrated high-speed 1D laser or 2D imager with High Density (HD) optics
  • A physical 23-key keypad including programmable keys and dedicated scan button

  • IP65-rating, MIL-STD-810G tested and operating in temperatures of -20°C to 60°C (-4°F to 140°F)

“Combining ultimate mobility, ruggedness and true field functionality this device is exactly what many of our customers have been asking for,” says Thomas Löfblad, CEO of Handheld Group. “The Nautiz X41 is feature packed and tough as nails.”
