From the company...

"The Nomad has several features—including the 800 MHz processor, a full VGA display and Windows Mobile 6—that truly qualify it as best in class," said Dale Kyle, rugged handhelds product manager for Tripod Data Systems, a Trimble company. "Combining the Nomad's rugged design with these features makes it an ideal choice for field-to-office connectivity to increase productivity."

The Nomad series of rugged handheld computers will be available in four configurations:

800B — the standard configuration with 512 MB Flash memory and Bluetooth

800L — 1 GB Flash memory, GPS, Bluetooth and 802.11g

800LC — 1 GB Flash memory, GPS, Bluetooth, 802.11g and digital camera

800LE — 1 GB Flash memory, GPS, Bluetooth, 802.11g, digital camera and bar code laser scanner

As with other Trimble rugged handheld computers, the Nomad series meets the MIL-STD-810F standard for drops, vibration and temperature extremes. It also comes with an IP67 rating, which means it is completely sealed against dust and can survive immersion in up to a meter of water for approximately 30 minutes. Weighing just 21 ounces (595 grams), the Nomad is shaped to fit comfortably in a user's hand.
The Nomad 800B and 800L are available now. The Nomad 800LC and 800LE are expected to be available in August 2007. The Nomad series of handheld computers are priced from US$1,699 to US$2,499 MSRP.
