Judging by the CL910's specifications alone, the tablet looks well equipped for business needs, packing a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom N600 processor, a 128GB SSD, 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass display, optional 3G connectivity as well as the Windows 7 Professional OS.
The model also features connections for USB and an SD card slot, has dual-facing cameras (3MP on the rear, 1.3MP on the front) and includes a magnetic stripe reader and barcode scanner. The slate is built to MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 standards.
Motion says the tablet will run for ‘up to’ seven hours without needing a recharge, which while reasonable, is still short of the ten hour mark Apple says the iPad will run.
The CL910 Tablet PC is now available at a starting price of $1,259.99 and while that may seem a little steep, the good news is that buyers will be entitled to a free Windows 8 upgrade when the new OS debuts later in the year.
Ever since Microsoft’s Tablet initiative back in 2000, Motion Computing has been embedded in the world of tablet PCs, and in recent times has launched the CL900 (the predecessor to the CL910), the rugged J3500, the C5v and F5v.
