Motion Computing today announced a new Tablet PC that is based on Intel’s most recent Centrino platform, formerly code-named Sonoma. The company claims that the device is capable to deliver a “full day” of battery life.
The LE1600 weighs about 3.1 pounds pounds and displays a slim, tapered design, about a quarter-pound lighter and a quarter” thinner than its predecessor Motion M1400. Motion’s new flagship product runs Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 and is built-to-order per customer specification, the manufacturer said.
The device integrates a Pentium M processor clocked at 1.5 GHz as well as Intel’s Mobile 915GMS Express and PRO/Wireless 2200 BG chipsets. Standard equipment includes 512 MByte DDR2-400 memory and a 30 GByte 1.8″ harddrive, a 12.1″ screen, Bluetooth and IrDA connectivity.
Motion offers an optional extended battery that allows computing time for a “full work day” (8 hours). Pricing for the LE1600 begins at $2200. (THG)
