Wacky 5.7-inch Android Mesa Rugged Notepad aka Rampage 6
SDG Systems and Juniper Systems have now partnered to bring to the market, the Mesa Rugged Notepad, otherwise known as the Rampage 6, a device that sports a 5.7-inch display and runs a customised version of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
According to the guys over at Engadget, the Rampage 6 lives up to its rugged handle due to the device having IP67 ratings for dust and water, whilst when it comes to other specs the Rampage 6 isn’t so rugged with 256MB RAM, 4GB of flash memory, and an 806MHz processor.
The Rampage 6 does have a 9-pin connector, a headphone jack, an SD card slot, USB and client ports, whilst apparently the standard model will come with WiFi and Bluetooth, whilst a Geo configuration also adds a 3.2 megapixel camera and GPS.
When the Rampage 6 releases to the mobile space later in the year, SDG will also offer a Geo 3G version of the Android notepad.
The president and CEO of Juniper Systems, Rob Campbell has said that by working together they have created a unique in-demand hand-held computer called the Rampage 6 with Android as its operating system, and leveraging the Android expertise of SDG gives customers a powerful data collection device.
Apparently the Rampage 6 will be distributed exclusively through SDG Systems, and should become available sometime in the third quarter of 2012, whilst the first public appearance of the Rampage 6 will be at the Esri International User Conference in San Diego on the 23rd through the 27th of July. Of course there’s no word on just what the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Rampage 6 will command price wise.
