Military grade mobile device

Product: Juno T41

With the proliferation of digital devices connecting an increasingly mobile workforce, subtle distinctions between products make it difficult to pinpoint differences at first glance. But upon closer inspection, the quality of device components can vary widely.

With that in mind, POS device distributor BlueStar Inc. recently selected an ultra-rugged hand-held device to include among its top product offerings: the Trimble Navigation Ltd. Juno T41.

Built to withstand the daily rigors imposed by the most demanding environments, the Juno T41 can be described as an ultra-rugged, all-in-one, smart-phone-inspired handheld device. Constructed of military grade components, the Juno T41 is certified to MIL-STD-810G and has an IP65 or IP68 rating, which means that it's sealed to protect against dust, water, shock and temperature extremes, the company stated.

"With the release of the Juno T41, we are providing a brand-new, rugged handheld that delivers the capabilities and convenience of a smart phone," stated Jim Sheldon, General Manager, Mobile Computing Solutions Division at Trimble. "This meets the specific demands we've heard from the marketplace."

To meet such demands, Trimble incorporated many advanced features into the Juno T41. "It offers a capacitive multitouch touch-screen interface with stylus compatibility, protected by a Gorilla glass display that's just as readable in bright sunlight as indoors," said Bethany Winders, Business Development Manager for BlueStar.

"Add to that an 8MP camera with LED flash and geo-tagging, a highly visible 4.3 inch display, up to 16GB storage and a full day of battery life, and you have a truly mobile handheld that can go just about anywhere and meet just about any business need," Winders noted.

Additionally, the Juno T41 offers voice, short message service and 3.75G cellular data transfer capabilities for Global System for Mobile Communications cellular networks, plus it supports 10 languages. To increase yield range, an optional external antenna can be mounted. The unit comes equipped with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities.

The Juno T41 is now available in two operating systems: Microsoft Corp. Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 or Google Inc. Android 2.3.4. BlueStar offers a value-added reseller program for those interested in marketing the Juno T41 or its other core products.
