New Look Rugged Handheld PC’s for the NZ Forest Industry
Interpine Forestry, Rotorua, is receiving plenty of interest from people interested in upgrading there current handheld field computers.
Interpine provided a solution with the rugged HP200LX back in the early 90’s. And then with the Psion Workabout with its integration into the Timbertech Log Optimiser. These solutions provided relatively cheap and effective alternatives to more expensive rugged handheld field computers on the market at the time, such as the Husky FS2, Hunter16 models.
