Node Explorer

Truly ruggedized PDA with lots of features you would like to see in such a device when using it aboard a ship.
“A company in UK called Node has developed the world’s first consumer PDA designed for use specifically in outdoor environments. The device is fully waterproof to 3 meters, has a 8 hour battery life, built in DGPS receiver and 1 Gig of storage. Bluetooth and WiFi come as standard as does a touch screen and either a PocketPC or Linux operating system. I bumped into them at a tourism conference in Edinburgh where they were demo’ing the unit and I was impressed. It’s smaller than a standard postcard.”
