Motion Computing presents a thin client with Tablet form factor
A mobile thin client tablet computer was introduced by Motion Computing. Thin client computers allow organizations to provide software applications and updates to their users while protecting sensitive information stored on secure network servers.

Priced from US$1,649, the Motion M1400TC Tablet Client runs the Windows XP Embedded operating system. It comes loaded with Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), Citrix ICA Client, Microsoft Internet Explorer with the Sun Microsystems Java Runtime Environment, and EverNote Corp.'s ritePen handwriting recognition software.

Because thin client computers do not store data locally like traditional PCs, these applications connect the device to software managed and data stored on an organizationís network.

The Motion M1400TC Tablet Client uses the existing Motion M1400 slate tablet PC chassis and has many of the same features including its award-winning wide viewing angle display and an integrated fingerprint reader. The tabletís traditional hard drive is replaced with 512MB solid-state flash storage, allowing storage only of the operating system and essential applications.

Motion says that a need was identified across multiple markets for an ultramobile, wireless thin client computer. Customers wanted to walk and compute with a lightweight slate tablet with pen input; but required the high data security, networked data access, centrally managed administration and high system reliability associated with thin client computing.
