Topcon Europe Positioning B.V. (The Netherlands) has released a new field computer: the FC-200, using the Intel X-Scale 520 MHz processor. The FC-200 comes with the Windows CE operating system built in and can run a variety of Windows-based applications such Microsoft Wordpad, Microsoft Explorer, Microsoft Media Player and Internet Explorer.

By connecting the Topcon FC-200 field computer to a cell phone, direct Internet access is established.
