Trimble introduced the AT&T Inc.-enabled Nomad 800X Series computers, three new models of its outdoor rugged handheld computer that offer Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) functionality and integrated quad-band GSM cellular data transmission, digital photography and bar-code scanning in one device. The Nomad 800X Series models use a built-in high-speed wireless data modem and AT&T's nationwide EDGE network to allow users to communicate from the field to a central office or other location. Nomad 800X Series computer users can send and receive real-time data and SMS messages via a cellular network at speeds up to 1 Mb per second wherever cellular connectivity is available. The Nomad 800XE handheld computer delivers up to three scans per second, offers easy field-to-office connectivity, and provides all-day usage of eight hours on a single battery charge. Users can choose from a range of compatible battery options, as well as add an ergonomic pistol-grip attachment that improves efficiency for mobile bar-code scanning.
