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.

The Trimble Nomad is powered by an 806MHz processor, between 512MB and 2GB of internal memory and a 640x480 resolution display. There is 128MB of RAM, a CompactFlash memory card slot and Bluetooth 2.0. Options include a 2-megapixel camera, GPS sensor and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Trimble Nomad 800B with Google Android 1.5 software development kit (SDK) is priced at $1,274. A Nomad 800XE tops out at $2,249. Qualifying developers have the option of purchasing the mobile computing systems from SDG until the end of July. [via MobileBurn]
