LIKE!: Motion CL900 Tablet PC. It has a very professional /” businessy” look to it; so far this is the best looking Windows semi-rugged tablet that I’ve seen. Its thinness and light weight allow for convenient handling, at the same time it is thick enough and heavy enough to give you that confidence to use it in harsh working environments.
Running Windows 2007, I installed the Mi-Forms Client on it, filled-out some electronic forms, and was very happy with the responsiveness and accuracy that I got. It uploaded images on the form without delay, and has excellent ink capture.
Except for a bar code scanner, it has the right combination of bells and whistles built-in for a mobile data capture machine: a dual camera, microphone, speakers, and GPS capability. It’s very easy to change the settings from touch to stylus (or both) and you can switch between portrait or landscape mode (I have yet to see if it can adjust automatically without prompting). As for battery life, a full charge can get you through most of the day; I would, however prefer it to have interchangeable batteries.
Overall, I’m very impressed with this Tablet and I would recommend it without hesitation. For some companies that I’ve talked to in the past, investing in a fit-for-purpose rugged tablet pc was a big hurdle due to the high initial cost. With Motion’s CL900 Tablet at $899, I think it’s a steal!
