With all of the market buzz about tablet PCs, it's important to consider the distinctions between consumer focused tablet devices that are suitable for content consumption and tablet PCs made with the business in mind. At Motion, we design our products to meet the demanding needs of mobile workforces across business and clinical environments. This means full multi-tasking support and compatibility with either the Windows® 7 or Windows XP operating systems. It also means systems durable enough to survive being occasionally dropped or exposed to moisture and dirt.
With these requirements in mind, we're excited about the launch of the new C5v and F5v tablet PCs. It isn't often that we are able to significantly improve performance, increase battery life and add new features while maintaining full backwards compatibility. In 2007 Motion launched our first "purpose-built" tablet PC with the C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA). We extended the powerful performance and integrated features to the field shortly after with the F5 and have seen remarkable results at customer sites. Our newest systems are based on the latest Intel® CoreTM vProTM low voltage processors, and the C5v and F5v are delivering a tremendous improvement in performance over the Core 2 Duo systems. The C5v and F5v provide users significant enhancements, based directly on customer and partner feedback, including longer battery life and improved security. Other new features like the hot-swap battery feature, front-facing web-cam, and Gobi 2000 for improved connectivity are all focused around helping the mobile worker improve in the field performance.
But don't just take my word for it, Conrad Blickenstorfer, rugged computing expert, highlighted the new F5v in a product review at http://www.ruggedpcreview.com/3_slates_motion_f5v.html RuggedPCReview.com. In his very thorough review, he focuses on the importance of powerful processing, commenting, "Overall, in RuggedPCReview's benchmark testing, the new Motion F5v has roughly 2.2x performance compared to the 2009 Core 2 Duo machine, and about 3 to 3.5x performance compared to the original Core Solo version. It also easily runs rings around any Atom-based device."
