Motion Computing unveils range of Windows-based rugged tablets

Motion Computing has unveiled a new selection of rugged Windows-based tablet devices.

The F5m and C5m tablets are designed to help improve efficiency, reduce data capture errors and improve real-time communication capabilities for field workers in industries such as utility, oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, public safety, and healthcare.

The new tablets include high-speed 4G XLTE broadband radios, providing mobile workers with twice the bandwidth and helping boost productivity in the field.

“Many of our public safety and utility customers operate within dense metropolitan areas where cellular network saturation can impact 4G wireless performance,” said Peter Poulin, CEO for Motion. “Not all enterprise-focused mobile devices are compatible with the latest 4G wireless technology, which means signal availability and data speeds can be unpredictable for many. With Motion’s investment in XLTE and specifically the additional spectrum it provides, we are ensuring that those customers can access the fastest networks available when using our tablets.”

The new tablets offer enhanced security options, including multi-factor authentication capabilities through a combination of password, fingerprint scanner and optional smart card reader. 

The tablets also harness the power of 5th generation Intel Core processors, helping users move through computation-intensive applications while increasing overall power efficiency.

“Although more workers are moving away from the traditional desk environment and towards a mobile structure, their data processing needs remain the same,” said Tom Garrison, vice president PC Client Group and general manager of the Business Client Platforms Division at Intel. “It’s our job to ensure they have the same superior processing capabilities on devices such as Motion’s F5m and C5m Tablets as they do on a desktop or laptop. With this latest generation of CPUs, we deliver the power – and power management – capabilities that will allow for users’ long-term growth on these mobile devices.”

The tablets’ 10.4” high resolution Corning Gorilla Glass  display incorporates Motion’s View Anywhere technology, providing optimal visibility in direct sunlight and supporting data capture out in the field.

The F5m and C5m tablets also contains new 8 megapixel rear cameras, which when used in unison with the SnapWorks by Motion camera application, enables users to capture, annotate and share the high resolution images necessary for inspection and documentation workflows.
