Full review: ARBOR Technology G60 Mobile Inspection Assistant with integrated thermal imaging
Arbor Technology's G60 "Mobile Inspection Assistant" is quite unique. Yes, it's a rugged Android handheld computer and phone, but it's also so much more.

ARBOR releases Apollo Lake-based COM Express Mini module
It's hard to keep track with Intel. Not long ago "Bay Trail" turbo-boosted the formerly anemic Atom processor family into respectability. 22nm Bay Trail was quickly followed by a shrunken 14nm version called "Braswell" with much improved graphics. And that was equally quickly followed by "Apollo Lake" with a new CPU architecture and gen9 graphics (the same architecture as in Skylake). ARBOR Technology is now offering Apollo Lake Celeron and Pentium processors in their new EmNANO-i2402 COM Express Mini Type 10 module that can support up to three HD displays or two 4k displays.
