SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today an all-in-one device for mobile communications and surveying data collection--the Trimble® Slate Controller. The Trimble Slate Controller combines the convenience and ease-of-use of a smartphone with the rugged durability for which Trimble is known. Optimized for Trimble Access(TM) field software and the Trimble R4 GNSS receiver, the Trimble Slate Controller fully supports a surveyor's everyday workflows.

"Surveyors require mobile, rugged solutions that can readily withstand and perform in the toughest of conditions," said Erik Arvesen, vice president of Trimble's Survey Division. "With the introduction of the Trimble Slate Controller, we are providing a rugged handheld device designed to run survey workflows while also delivering the capabilities and convenience of a smartphone."

Offering voice, SMS text, and 3.75G cellular data transfer capabilities on GSM cellular networks worldwide, the Trimble Slate Controller is a rugged device that enables enhanced connectivity in the field. Its wireless communication capabilities keep surveyors in the field connected to the office. An integrated 8-megapixel camera offers enhanced job documentation and point attribution by providing geotagged, high-quality digital photos.

The Trimble Slate Controller's slim, ergonomic design is easy to hold while its screen provides superior sunlight readability enabling all-day use by survey professionals. Designed to withstand even the toughest conditions, a 4.3 inch capacitive touch, Gorilla® glass display covers the entire front surface increasing readability without sacrificing durability.

Trimble Access field software available on the Trimble Slate Controller offers a variety of features and capabilities to streamline topographic, stakeout, control and other surveying applications. Partnered with Trimble Access and the Trimble R4 GNSS receiver, the Trimble Slate Controller provides a dedicated GNSS solution that is effective for both real time and post-processed GNSS surveys.
