Motion Computing has released a new lineup of rugged tablet computers with improved battery life, enhanced security, increased system storage, a better webcam, and other new features. Move aside iPad, this machine is built for business in the rough and tumble field. Channel Insider took a quick look at the new J3500 tablet PC.
Motion Computing’s new tablet PC is no lightweight, but with good reason. It includes an Intel Core vPro processor, Windows 7, a touch screen and Corning Gorilla glass with new anti-smear coating which Motion says offers up to a 4 times improvement in break resistance.
Input can be performed via touch or with a digitizer that is read by the screen even when it is held an inch away. The screen can be set to be read in a landscape or letter mode.
The J3500 is designed for vertical industries such as construction, field service and healthcare.
Features include two USB ports, Ethernet, headphone jack and microphone jack protected by rugged panels.
The tablet can fit into a separate folding keyboard stand with protective spill proof cover over the keyboard itself adds for an additional data input method.
A docking station turns the tablet into what looks like a computer monitor. Enhanced system storage is available in this model, with available 160GB hard disk drive (HDD), and 64GB or 128GB solid state drive (SSD) options and up to 4GB of RAM. The integrated back-facing documentation camera offers 3.0 megapixels. Integrated Gobi2000 mobile broadband provides GPS.
Motion says the J3500 Tablet PC meets MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 ratings to ensure protection against bumps, drops, rain or other conditions that can damage commercial-grade computing solutions. It also includes a dual hot-swappable battery system.
