We are in NYC for the C3 (The Corporate and Channel Computing Expo) show reporting to you live. One particular Tablet PC-oriented point of interest was the Nova Mobility Systems booth. Here we found a touch screen-based ultra-rugged Tablet Computer. This model seems to have the makings to be a big contender for the popular Panasonic ToughBook ruggedized line of notebooks and Tablet PCs.

We had a great chance to chat with Nova about some of the special features and benefits of the Nova ruggedized tablet computer. Please enjoy our photo tour of this interesting and practically indestructable piece of hardware…
(view large image) The touch screen can literally be banged about with little risk of damage to the expensive lcd.
(view large image) Operating the keyboard with heavy gloves is a cinch.
(view large image) The mouse buttons and trackpoint are also designed for easy operation with gloves.
(view large image) A watertight compartement houses the optical drive and battery. The components will stay dry even during operation in rainy conditions.
(view large image) The PCMCIA slots are recessed in the right rear of the unit.
(view large image) On the left side we have the various ports including USB, LAN, modem and Firewire.
(view large image) Finally, a special covered docking port is located on the back. The device is built to be docked inside a vehicle via special mounting hardware.
