Does anyone own an Itronix XC 6250 laptop?  I am interested in how many there are out there?  I am also curious about the Wireless feature, since I just bought one.

There's a good pool of XC6250's in the market, but mostly in commercial service.  There are high end rugged laptops only businesses can typically afford.  The XC6250's typically have CSC (circuit switched cellular/ CDPD) analog) radios from Sierra Wireless, or possibly ARDIS.  It's going to be obsolete in most instances.  The units I have include 2 type II PC Card slots so you can add a current GPRS or 1xrtt PC Card radio.  The units I have came with Win98 and a Cyrix 266MHz processor.

A recent news story here (at least some of them are made in Spokane)  caused me to  do a little "curiosity search" on ebay, an lo and behold, there are a few for sale.

These things are supposed to be the top of the heap for ruggedness, but they sure are big!!!

The internal radio modem may also be by RIM (Research in Motion - the folks that brought you the Blackberry) and probably for the 900MHz. data-only wireless network currently owned by Cingular Wireless.  This network has nothing at all to do with Cingular's cellular network.  Previously, this network was known as Bellsouth Wireless Data and Ram Mobile Data before that.
