Trimble Yuma rugged tablet

Trimble has introduced the Yuma, a tablet PC that expands the company's line of rugged devices. The tablet offers a seven-inch WVGA touchscreen that is claimed to be sunlight readable, while computing is handled by a 1.6GHz Atom processor. Data is stored in a 32GB solid state drive to avoid the use of moving parts, while allowing operation in temperatures ranging from -30C to 60C.

Connectivity is provided by integrated Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0, while SDIO and ExpressCard slots are available to add components. The computer also features two geo-tag enabled digital cameras and a built-in GPS receiver.

The device meets the military's MIL-STD-810F standards for impact, vibration and humidity resistance, with a housing measuring nine inches wide by two inches thick. Trimble claims that the Yuma can handle submersion in water down to depths of one meter.

The Yuma is expected to be available sometime in April. Pricing information has not yet been announced.
