Motion Computing launches Motion LS800 Tablet PC
Motion Computing has released the LS800, the most compact Tablet PC available running Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005. The new slate tablet PC, approximately the size of a paperback book, is small enough to slip into a lab coat pocket or attach to a tool belt and is optimal for highly mobile professionals in industries including route sales and service, manufacturing and healthcare.

Approximately half the size of most slate tablet PCs, the LS800 has an 8.4-inch display, is less than 1-inch thick and weighs 2.2 lbs. The LS800 is among the first tablet PCs with the latest generation of Intel Centrino mobile technology, including the Intel Pentium M Processor Ultra Low Voltage 753 (1.2 GHz) and the Mobile Intel 915GMS Express Chipset.

"Motion received frequent feedback from customers about the need for a lightweight, compact and powerful tablet PC. With the LS800, we are answering an unmet need for hands-free mobility and productivity across the mobile workforce; raising the bar for the tablet PC market. Motion is defining a new category of tablet PC with this ultra-portable slate," said Scott Eckert, Motion Computing's CEO. "The LS800 complements Motion's offering of best-in-class tablet PCs and accessories, while extending the company's leadership to new customers and industries."

The LS800 upgrades to 512MB of 400MHz DDRII memory and a 60GB 1.8" hard drive. The slim standard battery offers up to three hours of continuous use. Additional batteries are warm-swappable when the unit is placed in standby mode, allowing users to change batteries without fully powering down or rebooting.

The ultra-portable tablet's SVGA display provides a 120-degree viewing angle, and optional View Anywhere display technology allows for high-quality display clarity and visibility at nearly all angles indoors and outdoors. View Anywhere gives users a 10-to-1 reduction in sunlight reflection compared to standard tablet PC displays.

In terms of networking, the LS800 offers Gigabit Ethernet (with MobileDock) and embedded Wi-Fi supporting 802.11a/b/g. Users can utilize Bluetooth for peripheral connections or an IrDA port for quick wireless synchronization with PDAs and SmartPhones.

Even though it is a small device, the LS800 comes with a Secure Digital (SD) slot to read and write external memory cards, a VGA connector for external displays and digital projectors and a series of peripherals and accessories, including optional DVD/CD-RW drive, Bluetooth and USB keyboards, and compact carrying cases.

To maximize durability without increasing weight, the LS800 is housed in a plated carbon-fiber chassis with metalized paint. It has a 1.8-inch hard drive with twice the shock resistance of a 2.5-inch hard drive.

An embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM) enables hardware-protected encryption, as well as digital certificate storage for authentication and secure e-mail applications. A built-in fingerprint reader uses biometric data to prevent unauthorized access to system resources and encrypted data. The LS800 also features the Motion Security Center for quick access to the tablet PC's authentication, password and encryption applications. Users can disable 802.11, Bluetooth and IrDA at the BIOS level for additional data safeguarding.

The LS800 is available for US$1,899 through Motion resellers.
