I received an email from Motion Computing today informing me that the company has updated their C5 and F5 line of tablet PCs; now know as the Motion C5v MCA and F5v Mobile Field Tool.
Upgrades include availability of the Intel Core i7 or Core i5 vPro Processors along with new levels of power and security. The big ticket items that caught my attention were the reported 50% performance improvement, hot-swappable batteries with 30% longer life, availability of a solid-state hard drive and the use of Gorilla glass as the standard display. Câ€™mon, anything with â€œGorillaâ€ attached to it has to be cool.
While Iâ€™ve been critical of the C5 in the past, I find myself becoming more interested in the device with each improvement made by the company. Itâ€™s clear that Motion Computing is taking tablet PC use in health care seriously, and I have to cheer for any company thatâ€™s willing to do that.
Hereâ€™s the email:
