rugged handheld

I've just started speccing a job and need a rugged handheld.  When the vendors describe one as rugged, they seem to mean either dustproof or waterproof.  I need one that is van-driver proof.  The drivers need to download worksheets and upload parts used so they can be invoiced.  The handheld needs to scan barcodes via a built in scanner and have a sim card so it can communicate via gsm/gprs.

I've been pointed towards the Psion Netpad.  Anyone have any experience or better suggestions?

Does anyone have any idea at all about this.  I've had a good hunt round other sites and haven't found anything useful yet.

RE: rugged handheld

Thanks, that's useful. I need to find some recommendations too, according to the adverts they are all wonderful.
