Trimble Introduces Next Generation Rugged Tablet Computer

Words: Bronzella Cleveland

Trimble has introduced the Yuma® 2 rugged tablet computer – a powerful mobile computing solution that provides full office capabilities in the field.

The Yuma 2 offers a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen in an easy-to-hold form factor that measures 6.3 inches x 9.6 inches, and weighs less than three pounds. Featuring new display technology for even clearer readability in direct sunlight, the Yuma 2 can be used by mobile workers in the brightest outdoor conditions. The 3.75G dual-mode cellular data capability enables connectivity anywhere GSM or CDMA cellular networks are available.

Featuring the Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional operating system, the Yuma 2 is a fully-functional field computer with a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom dual-core processor, 4 GB of DDR3 DRAM, a 64 GB solid state drive (SSD) and a dual battery with eight hours of typical run-time. Optional features include a 128 GB SSD, 3.75G cellular data connectivity and an Extended Battery Set that provides up to 16 hours of operation.

With the multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, users can type with fingers, stylus or capacitive gloves and can control the size of the keyboard on the display for ease-of-use. Controlled zoom can optimize the user experience with maps and detailed information. The display supports use in landscape or portrait mode and is configurable to hold the orientation or to alter it in response to the accelerometer. The 5-megapixel camera provides video and photo capture with geo-tagging. The GPS receiver provides 2 to 4 meter accuracy, making it ideal for data collection in applications such as distributed asset management, work order management, fleet logistics and more.

“Ruggedness and connectivity in the field are vital for mobile workers – and Trimble has a history of providing innovative computing solutions to the market,” said Jim Sheldon, general manager of Trimble’s Mobile Computing Solutions Division. “Today, users demand solutions that are even tougher, faster, more reliable and easier to use, so they can be more efficient and productive. With new features and functionality, the Yuma 2 is an ideal solution that provides even more computing power to mobile professionals – more memory, computing speed, drive capacity, connectivity options and better display readability.”

As with other Trimble rugged mobile computers, the Yuma 2 meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for drops, vibration and humidity; and with an IP65 rating, it is protected against dust and water.

The Trimble Yuma 2 tablet computer is expected to be available early in the fourth quarter of 2012. For more information about the Trimble Yuma 2 and other outdoor rugged handheld computers, visit www.trimble.com/rugged, e-mail handhelds@trimble.com, or call 541-750-9200.
