This is nice and all but for the amount it cots and the fact we can have apps, my droid is a better buy. I can make barcodes, print them, telnet client allows access to our server, the VPN security suite allows remote access through a custom logon into our firewall, and the built in software provides access to all my e-mail, phone, text, im, and other clients over mobile, bluetooth, wireless and shared usb network, upgradeable system memory that is cheap, better camera, geotagging, video recorder (has helped me with a few customers).

The toughbook does have longer battery life, a brighter and larger screen, and a fingerprint reader, XP downgrade option (when did downgrading become such a huge feature?) and weighs more.




I think the android OS and devices will be taking over the small business appliances we used to use independently. The air cards, laptops, scanners, phones, etc....


Why scan a document when a picture is faster, and easier?
