The company is now accepting orders for the product and expects to begin shipping initial units in October.

The newest addition to Kontron's full line of mobile computers, the convertible ReVolution truly is a first in rugged computing.

The upgradeable ReVolution also features impressive wireless communications capabilities and rugged construction designed to support the applications and challenging working conditions now common in field computing across many industries.

"During the past few months, we've had the opportunity to preview the ReVolution for many of our customers working in defense, public safety and other demanding computing environments," said Dale Szymborski, president. "The response has been excellent. Users working in these kinds of conditions immediately appreciate the benefits of a rugged, convertible notebook and tablet in one. We expect that the ReVolution will be an important product for us and our partners in the VAR and system integrator channels."
