Motion Computing, the global provider of tablet PCs and supporting mobility solutions, has announced that the Motion F5v Tablet PC is now available with the Intel Core i3 processor. This new option creates a lower entry price point for organisations that require the streamlined processes and increased productivity that the F5v brings to mobile workforces, but do not need the advanced systems management capabilities of the Intel i5 or i7 vPro processors.
Ideal for mobile workforces across vertical markets, including construction, field service, government and retail, the F5v is also now available with a 30GB solid state drive (SSD) option, further lowering the starting price of the tablet PC while providing the reliability of an SSD. With these new additions, Motion can offer customers the most robust price, performance and feature options on a rugged tablet PC to support a variety of mobility needs.
Now, organisations that are already benefitting from the F5v's highly mobile, durable design can also take advantage of the new lower entry price point for appropriate applications. The F5v with the i3 processor is compatible with all of the peripherals designed for the F5-Series Tablet PCs, creating new levels of affordable power, security and manageability. As the ideal mobile computing device for virtually any environment, the F5v now provides organisations with more options in order to match the performance and cost of the tablet with the requirements of their mobile business processes.
"Motion is committed to offering our customers a broad range of price and performance options to help them maximise field productivity with the solution that best meets their needs," said Nigel Owens, Motion vice president of worldwide sales and GM of EMEA, Motion. "The addition of a new processor option is reflective of that commitment and we'll continue to focus on the latest technologies that help us offer flexibility for our diverse customer base."
Fully rugged, the F5v meets MIL-STD-810G and IP-54 standards, so it is protected against the bumps and drops associated with highly mobile workflows and sealed against dust and moisture. The tablet PC is ideal for mobile users that require durability, mobility and performance in a lightweight design, while packing powerful integrated features, including a digital camera, web camera and barcode scanner, into a compact frame that has proven to significantly increase field productivity. Utilising the Windows 7 operating system and available with robust connectivity options, the tablet PC creates a seamless link between mobile workers and office-based employees.
