"Steatite announced the availability of Getac's ultra-rugged PS236 handheld Windows Mobile PDA, with full accreditation to ATEX (category 3 / zone 2), which makes this device safely usable in environments with an explosive atmosphere. The Getac PS236 is the fastest device of its kind at 806mhz and still the only handheld that is IP67 rated and a phone. This upgrade extends the market for the device from military and general field based operations to now include the gas, oil and chemical industries. In addition to IP67 certification, which gives a guaranteed ingress protection against dust and allows the unit to be water-proof to 1 metre, the PS236 has full MIL-STD-810G certification, which is the generally accepted standard of military ruggedisation and compliance for mobile computers and equipment. The ultra-rugged Windows Mobile PDA comes with integrated GPS, altimeter, an auto-focus 3 megapixel camera, e-compass, hi-res display for all sorts of GIS surveying and other GPS/mapping-based applications."
You want a Windows Mobile device that can be used in an explosive atmosphere? You want protection against dust and waterproof to one metre? MIL-STD-810G certification? Say hello to the Getac PS236. Cost? It's one of those "email us for a quote" deals, so you know what they say about if you have to ask for the price...
