Irvine-based rugged computer manufacturer Getac has added 3G wireless coverage to its bestselling notebook, the B300, and its V100 convertible computer.
The computers are now Verizon Wireless Network-ready, a feature useful for people who work remotely in areas where coverage is weak.
Fast built-in mobile broadband access over wireless cellular networks will now be available in the computers, rendering Wi-Fi hotspots and external data cards unnecessary.
"Access to Verizon's 3G Wireless Network has made two of the best rugged notebook solutions for field use even better," says Jim Rimay, president of Getac. "This will provide our customers with greater options for their wireless needs and increase productivity by ensuring they can stay connected, which is absolutely critical for our customers."
Getac customers include members of the public safety, utilities, construction and military work force.
Founded in 1989, Getac’s portfolio today includes rugged notebooks, rugged tablet PCs and rugged handheld devices for military, police, government, communications, manufacturing and transportation applications.
