Great news for you Android fans out there (and I know there’s a few of you) as now you can take your Android to the field, drop it, submerge it in water, toss it around, kick it or ?? Utah-based Juniper Systems has announce a partnership with Pennsylvania-based SDG Systems in order to bring to market the Mesa Rugged Notepad with Android (AOSP) 2.3 operating system. The result is a new, rugged handheld computer known as the RAMPAGE™ 6 and will be distributed exclusively through SDG Systems.

Looking for 2012 Olympic POIs? Avenza systems, developers of PDF Maps (think mobile maps for iOS) has created and served up some downloadable placemark datasets, ideal for users of the free PDF Maps mobile mapping application. FYI, the PDF Maps app uses the convenient KML/KMZ file format to import/export and exchange placemark data between and amongst PDF Maps users – yes, you can even make and distribute your own placemark datasets too! Avenzxa has a number of placemark sets available for download as KML/KMZ and can be easily and quickly used in your PDF Maps or browse them inside Google maps or Google Earth as well. Downloadable sets are available for New York, Beijing, China, Toronto, Washington DC, and for the London Olympics – See HERE
