Trimble Nomad with Android

SDG Systems on Thursday announced it has made Google's Android 1.5 operating system available on its Trimble Nomad rugged handheld PC. This will allow developers to test Android applications on the device, which can be optioned up with a quad-band GSM and EDGE data radio for making and receiving phone calls. Android 1.5 includes the Cupcake updates that adds a virtual keyboard and lets users view running third party applications from the regular applications list, among other changes. Previously, Trimble Nomad was offered only with Linux or Windows Mobile 6.0 software.
