February seems to be shaping up to be the month of Linux tablets. Just last week we saw the announcement of the forthcoming Spark tablet running Mer Linux and KDE, which has caused plenty of excitement among Linux fans.
Now, the latest news appears to be the Trimble Yuma, a rugged tablet from SDG Systems that now runs Ubuntu Linux.
Targeting military and industrial applications requiring data collection, inspection, and reporting from the field, the Linux-powered Yuma can be used with geospatial software including GRASS GIS and Quantum GIS as well as other standard or custom Linux-based applications. The device is available starting at $3695 on SDG's website.
