Handheld holiday trade-in program offers up to $200 savings on new NAUTIZ X8

[Lidköping, Sweden, December 17, 2014.] Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers and smartphones, today announced that its Crazy Christmas trade-in promotion will allow customers to save up to $200 on a brand-new NAUTIZ X8 by trading in an approved competitive device. The NAUTIZ X8 is a compact field data collector with a brilliant 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen.

The Nautiz X8 rugged PDA, introduced in September, is built specifically for workers in tough environments such as GIS, land surveying, public safety, forestry and military. It meets MIL-STD-810G military test standards for withstanding extreme temperatures, humidity, shock, drops and vibrations, and its IP67 ingress protection rating means it is sealed against dust and water.

This compact data collector features a 4.7-inch chemically-strengthened capacitive multi-touch screen, a powerful dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of iNAND Flash and a built-in 8-megapixel camera. It offers numerous connectivity options and runs either Android 4.2.2 or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5.3, for unrivalled versatility in the field.

From now until January 31, 2015, Handheld will offer up to $200 in credit toward the purchase of a new Nautiz X8 when customers trade in one of the following competitor devices: Trimble or TDS Recon; Trimble or TDS Nomad; Juniper Archer; Juniper Archer 2; Getac PS236; or Getac PS336. Customers may also trade in Handheld’s Nautiz X7.

“The new Nautiz X8 is the world’s best rugged handheld computer, with exceptional durability, connectivity, processing power and battery life — without compromising ergonomics or design,” says Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. “This promotion makes it an even better value.”

Credit details are as follows:

  • Customers will receive a $150 credit when purchasing a NAUTIZ X8 base unit (NX8-BW, NX8-BA)
  • Customers will receive a $200 credit when purchasing a NAUTIZ X8 WWAN model (NX8-GW, NX8-CW, NX8-GA, NX8-CA)

To take advantage of this limited-time offer, place an order with your Handheld Authorized Reseller. The reseller will confirm trade-in details and manage shipment of your used device, and your new Nautiz X8 unit(s) will be shipped upon receipt and inspection of your trade-in unit(s) at Handheld. Credit will be forfeited if Handheld does not receive your trade-in device within 30 days of purchase. Customers are limited to one trade-in discount per Nautiz X8 unit purchased.
