Newly Released Flint Handheld Is Not Resistant To Being Rugged
Tallahassee, Florida, Feb. 21, 2012 --- F4Devices, a subsidiary of F4 Tech and strategic partner with BAP Precisions, Taiwan, introduced today a new generation of high precision GNSS devices for GIS field applications, the Flint rugged handheld. With the new Flint handheld, field workers requiring a rugged mobile handheld device now have a solution that is lightweight, compact, rugged, cost-effective and, most of all, performs. The Flint fits well into GIS field data collection markets such as municipalities, oil and gas and forestry, to name a few.
The completely integrated Flint handheld offers a unique, one-of-a-kind combination of flexible GPS configurations, ranging from 1-3 meter to sub-meter accuracies, while supporting geotagging with the 5 megapixel autofocus camera as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G data. There are two versions to choose from, the S812H (includes GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and 5 MP camera) and the S852H (includes GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, 5 MP camera and 3G data).
"The new Flint handheld impresses, from the first moment you see it. The ruggedness of the device, IP65, in this small of a package while achieving the GPS accuracies we have been able to achieve is something to acknowledge as a leader in its class” says Brian Holley, Director of Distribution for F4Devices. “Add in its high-resolution, sunlight-readable VGA screen, extendable data storage and Microsoft Office Mobile standard on all units, this makes it even more impressive,” added Holley.
Empowering Mobile Professionals
The Flint handheld is specifically designed for spatially motivated professionals looking for a rugged, dependable device. The feature rich handheld is designed with the field user in mind. The camera button is where it should be, just as if you were holding a camera and the GPS performs, plain and simple. These two features combined provide a powerful solution for precise geotagging. In tough environments, whether it is extreme weather or high multi-path, the Flint handheld is up to the challenge.
The F4Devices Flint is not resistant to being rugged. Shock- PROOF, dust- PROOF, and water- PROOF, sets this unit apart from those in its class.
