“The Mesa has all the advantages of a handheld, plus the advantages of a tablet PC, without the disadvantages of either.”

Mesa Rugged Notepad


Meet the Mesa Rugged Notepad™— featuring the advantages of both a tablet PC and a rugged handheld computer, without the disadvantages of either.

The Mesa is a data collection powerhouse with massive screen real estate, yet still feels like a compact handheld at the end of the long work day. To make life even better, the Mesa comes with a speedy Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system that features a custom Juniper Systems finger-friendly onscreen keyboard, plus new GPS and camera enhancements.

Like other Juniper Systems products, the Mesa provides a battery life that lasts all day (up to 16 hours), includes endless expansion opportunities, and is rugged enough to use as a wheel chock if the truck starts to roll.


Bigger is better. That’s definitely true of the Mesa’s 5.7 inch VGA active viewing display. No other Windows Mobile® rugged handheld computer sports a screen bigger than the Mesa. Plus, the screen is bright enough to easily see in the great outdoors.

Unique to the Mesa is its one-of-a-kind Juniper Systems home screen. This custom home screen puts the most-used device functions in an on-screen dashboard for easy access. Features include user-defined shortcuts and 11 screen gadgets for controlling wireless connections, GPS, texting, email, calendar, and power functions.


Built to survive the harshest environments, the Mesa is the perfect companion for everything rugged. This tough heap of equipment can survive four foot drops onto concrete, full immersion in water, and temperatures up to a scorching 122°F.

The Mesa is fully waterproof and dustproof, earning it an IP67 rating. It's been tested to MIL-STD-810G for water, humidity, sand and dust, vibration, altitude, shock, and temperature. We also have a Mesa Hazloc model available certified with Class I, Division 2 for hazardous locations or ATEX for Europe. Visit the Mesa’s specifications page for all the nitty-gritty details on this rugged handheld computer.


With two battery slots, the Mesa is sure to last through the most rigorous usage. It operates for up to 16 hours with two batteries, and only takes a quick 2-4 hours to fully charge. And if push comes to shove, the batteries are warm-swappable in the field, ensuring continued use without losing any data.
