Motion F5 tablet PC

Motion Computing

Motion Computing is shipping its new Motion F5, a durable slate tablet PC for mobile professionals. The semirugged Motion F5 is designed and tested to fit realworld, field-ready conditions such as bumps, drops or exposure to wind, heat and rain. Built with an internal framing system, the F5 is thin and weighs only about 3 pounds. The device has been optimized to handle field work scenarios.

The DataGuard accelerometer, shock-mounted hard drive and optional SSD drive minimize data loss when the occasional drop or bump happens. Motion has included a three-year fieldready warranty that protects against incidents that can occur in the field. The Motion F5 also includes support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, natural pen and speech input, and an integrated digital camera, radio frequency identification reader and an optional bar code scanner.
