Chandler, Arizona (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Group Mobile, well known for carrying the top brands in rugged laptops, rugged tablets, rugged PDAs, and rugged handheld computers has recently extended its product offerings to include the newest Trimble outdoor rugged tablet computer. The Yuma 2 is a powerful mobile computing solution that provides full office capabilities in the field for construction, transportation, public safety, field service, forestry, utilities, mapping, insurance, and any other outdoor or service-related industries.
"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."
The Yuma 2 offers a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen in an easy-to-hold form factor weighing less than three pounds. Featuring new display technology for clear 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.
The Yuma 2 features Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional operating system, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom dual-core processor, 4GB of DDR3 DRAM, a 64GB solid state drive (SSD) and a dual battery with eight hours of typical run-time. Optional features include a 128GB 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. Controlled zoom optimizes the user experience with maps and detailed information. The display can be used in portrait or landscape mode and is configurable to hold the orientation or to alter it in response to the accelerometer. The integrated 5-megapixel camera provides video and photo capture with geo-tagging. The GPS receiver, with 2-4 meter accuracy, makes the Yuma 2 ideal for data collection in distributed asset management, work order management, fleet logistics, and more.
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.
“Trimble outdoor rugged computers have always been a favorite among our highly mobile customers because of their exceptional ruggedness and dependability, as well as Trimble’s years of experience in designing outdoor rugged mobile solutions," said Stephanie Kreitner, Marketing Director for Group Mobile. “The Yuma 2 tablet delivers the high performance and ease-of-use of a tablet, with ruggedness and long-term support that customers have come to expect from Trimble.”
Four different configurations are available to provide the tablet that meets the right need at the right price. Options include a larger SSD and 3.75G GSM and CDMA cellular data capability, as well as three different color schemes.
