Android now features in military equipment
Android has reached battlefields, ?Itronix GD300 is the latest in War-fightin’ gear available from General Dynamics (GD) C4 Systems. It runs Android and comes with a 600MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 256MB of memory, 8GB flash storage and a 3.5-inch, 800 x 480 pixel sunlight-readable, glove-friendly touchscreen display.
It is basically a full-on wrist- or chest-mounted GPS unit designed to deliver both real-time global positioning and connect to tactical radios.
“The GD300 is a game-changing computer that will save lives,” said Mike DiBiase, vice president of Computing Technologies for General Dynamics C4 Systems. “We expect the GD300 will become the most important 8 ounces of tactical communications and situational awareness equipment that a warfighter can carry.”
