    Has any one seen the Trimble Rugged Computers. They make three handheld computers and a tablet Ultra Mobile PC.

    The yuma is pretty cool, but i think its on the high end of 3k for a base model one. It's pretty much the worlds largest smartphone using VOIP, and close to indestructible. I'm keep coming up with justifications for one, but i really don't need it. I could run xm weather, read RFID tags on cattle, produce more spreadsheets than anyone needs, and anything else my little brain come up with. If i get one in a few years they'll be faster, more capable, and cheaper, maybe cheaper.

    I found out about them b/c my dads friend picked up a recon to run a basaltic calculator for long range shooting. It's sweet, unfortunatley my phone wouldn't take any good pics of it.
