With thanks to Chris Lineback for calling this to my attention--this is cool!
“COLUMBUS, Ohio - With a quick imprint of a suspect's two fingers on a handheld device, Columbus police can get instant access to the person's identity without making a trip to the booking office.The department announced this week it is testing 40 RapID wireless units it purchased recently for about $3,000 each using a federal Homeland Security grant. “
So…… I got curious, and checked the products specs from the manufacturers web site :
¦ Powered by a 512 MHz Intel processor
¦ 64 MB RAM, 64 MB Flash
¦ Pocket PC 2003 SE operating system
¦ Transflective TFT display 480x640 pixels
VERY COOL implementation of Pocket PC OS!!!!!
