Your New Field PC – A Rugged Tablet from Trimble?

Rugged Tablet PC, the Trimble YumaLast week, GPS technology company Trimble announced a new rugged tablet PC that they appear to be targeting at a variety of industries and market sectors. The Yuma is billed as having an ingress protection rating of 67 (6=dust tight; 7= protection against effects of immersion from 15cm to 1m). It also comes with integrated GPS (naturally), 2 integrated cameras (nice for geotagging), WiFi b/g and 7″ sunlight readable touchscreen display. I can see this gadget being useful for GIS professionals, geologists mapping in the field, and anyone keeping an inventory of things in the field. Its sort of like a netbook for field guys! More details after the break. (Photo by Trimble)
