Rugged smartphones differ from normal smartphones due to their ability to withstand various environmental conditions and offer protection against high temperature, water, dust and vibration. These phones and tablets undergo through various tests as per military standards to analyse their strength and ability to withstand tough conditions. The smartphones and tablets are used by various industries and can also be used for personal use during outdoor activities, such as trekking and wall climbing as these devices are not prone to getting damaged easily, even after falling, unlike normal phones and tablets.

Mobile computers are portable devices used for collecting and transferring data from different machines and analysing them. Rugged handheld mobile computers can be used in harsh environments including wet, dusty conditions, extreme temperatures or during high vibration conditions. The rugged computers are a combination of high strength and performance, thereby resulting in the enhancement of their business functionality as compared to normal computers as these offer reliable communication without any distortion. The mobile computer consists of operating systems such as Windows, allowing users to use it as a normal PC. The mobile computers are customized as per the requirement of a company and the operating environment. The mobile computers can operate on iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Windows 7, and Windows Embedded Compact operating systems. These devices are used by various industries including aerospace and defence, manufacturing units & industries, transportation, and logistics. MEMOR 1, SCORPIO X4 and others are a few examples of mobile computers. There are various companies that manufacture and sell mobile computers, including Dell Inc. and Handheld Group.

Rugged scanners are used across various industries for managing inventory, streamlining processing, ordering, and maintaining accurate records for equipment maintenance and asset utilization, among other applications. The rugged readers and scanners can be used in various industries, including retail, manufacturing, oil & gas, utility, defence, and healthcare, and in challenging working conditions such as extreme heat, pressure, and high vibration condition during production. Their durability and ability to communicate with a strong network during harsh conditions make them a reliable device. There are different types of scanners and readers, such as image barcode scanners, wireless or cordless handheld barcode scanners, industrial barcode scanners and handheld barcode scanners, which are used in accordance with the environmental conditions. These devices can withstand water and can share information with a strong communication network.

There are various other rugged handheld devices and products such as personal digital assistants (PDAs) which are used in various industries and for personal use. PDAs have somewhat similar capabilities as that of PCs and smartphones; however, these are designed in accordance with the applications they are required to operate in. These devices are used to analyse data for retailers, warehouse management, and other industrial uses to track the condition of a machine. These devices are used to track the inventory and the purchase and sale of products. Moreover, the tracking system of PDAs allows real-time communication among machines and allows the user to track the channel.
