Enterprise Mobility: Motion CL900: A Good Tablet Deserves a Better OS
One doesn't hear the term "tablet PC much these days, but such devices have been around since the early "noughties," and Motion Computing's CL900 is a state-of-the-art personal computer in a tablet format. The CL900 runs Microsoft Windows 7 and is built around Intel's Atom Z670 CPU to be a workhorse device for use on the shop floor or in the field. With a toughened case and a screen made of Corning's Gorilla glass, it should stand up to everyday handling as well as any other tablet. The CL900 is drop-test rated to 48 inches. As extra protection from the law of gravity, the company sells a variety of sleeve and sling options for the tablet, as well as portfolios and a docking station designed for countertop-level use. Users can choose between touch for input or the CL900's included stylus. The CL900 isn't a device that you're going to carry to make you look cool, but it is assuredly a device to carry when you need to get serious work done.
