Trimble has followed up its rugged Yuma
tablet with the Yuma 2
. It is also powered by Windows 7, like the past device, and is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, and there is 4GB of RAM onboard. It uses a 7-inch capacitive multitouch screen with 1,024x600 resolution and an anti-reflective coating.
As with other similar devices, the Yuma 2 is meant for field workers in the construction, transportation, public safety, forestry, and other outdoor service-related industries.
Storage space is set at 64GB, which is twice that of the original Yuma, with a 128GB SSD optional. The tablet meets IP67 standards for resistance to adverse weather conditions and MIL-STD810F/G spec for shock resistance.
Options include a dual-mode cellular modem for connecting to GSM or CDMA networks. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi radios are standard fare. The dual battery is said to be good for up to eight hours of operation, though an extended battery doubles it.
A GPS accurate to within less than 13 feet is standard, and the five-megapixel camera geotags photos. It can also record video and has a built-in LED flash.
The tablet is expected to ship before year's end, though pricing is yet to be revealed. [via SlashGear
